DDG, the architecture and development shop in New York City, is known for using natural materials and dressing its buildings with greenery. This has been the case at a slew of its high-end residential projects around the city, such as 41 Bond or 345 Meatpacking. The firm’s latest residential building at 12 Warren Street in Tribeca continues in that tradition—and then some.

NY YIMBY got its hands on new renderings of the firm’s 12 Warren project, one of which shows off its very dramatic bluestone facade. To further emphasize the building’s natural vibe, greenery is planted across the exterior. Classic DDG.The building before renovation. (Courtesy Google)
The bluestone continues inside the project’s condo units which are finished with a mix of natural elements. YIMBY noted that the project is actually a renovation and addition on top of an existing structure that will more than double in size to 12 stories.
For now, the construction site sits shrouded in canvas-covered scaffolding, keeping the design hidden from public view. At the street level, DDG is displaying photographs of natural areas where building materials were gathered.The building is expected to be completed in Spring 2016.(Courtesy MARCH) (Courtesy MARCH)
