550 Vanderbilt Brooklyn

550 Vanderbilt combines spectacular views across the city with a grounded scheme of planting around the building to reduce heat retention and engender a feeling of nature being close at hand. Designed to fit gracefully into the existing Brooklyn landscape, the building of onetwo- and three-bedroom apartments aims to promote community and a relationship with the natural world. Award-winning architecture firm COOKFOX used the principals of Biophilic Design throughout, believing that using natural materials helps enhance creativity and wellbeing. This encompasses everything from using wood flooring and Carrara marble to installing planters around the generously proportioned windows. Sustainability is also key, with FSC-certified wood and stone specified and a sophisticated air filtration system installed to ensure good air quality for the residents. GROHE bathroom fittings were specified throughout, with Essence basin mixers and Euphoria Cosmopolitan shower systems chosen not just for their contemporary looks but also their innovative EcoJoy water-saving function. In the penthouse apartments the sleekly iconic GROHE Atrio range features in the bathrooms.
