Known for his 1970's pro-environment art exhibitions, Carson Ferri-Grant designed his new home as an open loft-type environment, incorporating some U.S. Green Building Council, LEED-EBOM solutions; as solar lighting, skylights, dual-room translucent sharing of sun light, multi-temperature rated building materials, maximum cross-breeze and venting placement of windows and doors, ductless central HVAC system with individually controlled cooling/heating units, and Energy Star appliances.

The environmentally friendly gardens which generate oxygen for the greater NYC good, nurture Morning Dove and Finch migration habits, and feed the occasional berry-picking visitors, are a peaceful resting place for endangered butterflies and bumble bees that thrive on the perennials.

An eight year in development project, with the architectural/engineering approved plans, multiple Coop board approvals, NYC Department of Buildings filings and inspections, and a dedicated artist's passion, the new Penthouse apartment was completed June 2010.
