Bronx River House is a cutting-edge environmental learning laboratory and base of operations for the restoration of the Bronx River and the development of the Bronx River Greenway. A NYC Parks facility that serves as headquarters of the Bronx River Alliance, Bronx River House includes a boat house, work space, and rooms for community use. A living part of the park, River House is wrapped in a double layer living wall system of vines and mosses, irrigated with rainwater, to create a favorable microclimate for energy efficiency, improved air quality, and habitat creation. An integrated PV and daylighting roof system will supply all the building’s energy. 

Architect: Kiss + Cathcart, Architects
