Based in New York City, BoND [Bureau of Noam & Daniel] is a full-service architecture and interior design firm with a focus on commercial projects, experiential and workplace environments; high-end residential projects – renovation of existing spaces and new build; and a special expertise in gathering spaces and design for communities. Our work has been published widely by the New York Times, Architectural Digest, Dwell, and others, and won international awards.
Coming from a background of journalism and writing, our work is rooted in the conceptual realm. Bold ideas and visions that transform into design strategies and execution, through a continuous dialogue with our clients. We approach every project as a singular opportunity and for this reason we don’t have a pre-defined “style”. Our work takes a joyful approach towards minimalism while taking cues from classical forms; it is emotional and humane, on the one hand, and seeks smart organizational ideas and material innovation on the other. We are inspired by communities and the people who make them - and our projects enhance the sense of belonging and empowerment. We look at projects holistically, and create spaces where light, form, furniture and art contribute to unexpected experiences.
