Environmental Artist Sells LEED-Inspired Upper West Side Penthouse for $1.7M: Actor/artist Carson Ferri-Grant ha...

Mr. Ferri-Grant is also (apparently) known for his 1970s-era pro-environment art exhibitions and designed his apartment to reflect those concerns. The space is open and loft-like to maximize cross-breezes and venting placement of windows and doors, with a ductless central HVAC system, individually controlled heating and cooling units, and Energy Star-rated appliances. In a 2010 article discussing the project , Mr. Ferri-Grant noted that the design incorporated “some USGBC LEED-EB: OM solutions: solar lighting, skylights, dual-room translucent sharing of sunlight, and multi-temperature-rated building materials.” The three-bedroom, two-bath duplex unit includes a 2100-square-foot roof terrace where Mr. Ferri-Grant grew flowers, blueberries, and various herbs and provided a habitat for butterflies, bees, doves, and finches (pictured, top).
