22 Washington Square North, a renovated townhouse located on Washington Square Park. The building is one of the 13 townhouses that stand on the north side of Washington Square Park, and are commonly referred to as "The Row."
Renovations to 22 Washington Square North began in June of 2008 and were completed by August of 2009. Architects for the renovations were Morris Admmi Architects, a New York City based architecture and interior design firm. The building, containing a vertical garden of ornamental grasses, ferns, flowering perennials, and evergreen ground covers, was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Designation from the U.S. Green Building Council. The green wall is set in a small outdoor courtyard and can be enjoyed from the inside via the interior offices of the five-story building which overlook the vegetation as well as a glass elevator that boasts a garden view. The wall helps clean outside air of pollutants, offsets the carbon footprint of people and fuel emissions, acts as a sound proofing, and provides a natural filter for water that flows through it.
