William Pedersen Designs Green Dog House Inspired by One Jackson Square

The design – prepared for a charity auction – was inspired by KPF’s LEED-hopeful One Jackson Square condos in the West Village.

You may recall One Jackson Square , a 36-unit, 11-story condominium project under construction in the West Village that will seek an unspecified level of LEED certification from USGBC. The project, co-developed by Hines and RFR, was designed by KPF principal William Pedersen and sits on an irregularly-shaped 10,697 square foot floor plate on the stretch of Greenwich Avenue between West 13th and 14th Streets.

Recently, Mr. Pederson participated in a charity auction for the Animal Medical Center by designing a dog house inspired by his architecture at One Jackson Square. Notwithstanding the condo’s luxury finishes, Pedersen’s design concept was to take a simple box and mimic some of the architectural features of the LEED-hopeful project. The 20-square-foot kennel features a green roof, the same Baltic birch plywood that will ultimately grace the One Jackson Square lobby, and was constructed using the same digital carving process as the real thing.

The dog house went for $6000 at a recent auction and joined two other projects solicited by the Animal Medical Center: a birdcage by I.M. Pei’s son Sandi (Bank of China tower in Hong Kong) and a cat house by New York Asia Society and Museum designer Bartholomew Voorsanger.
