WALL STREET JOURNAL ON THE MODERN REC ROOM

WALL STREET JOURNAL ON THE MODERN REC ROOM

08/18/2017

In the Wall Street Journal’s recent design article writer Elizabeth Anne Hartman explores the evolution of the recreation room. From basements to attics, spare and otherwise under-used nooks of residences have been co-opted as “getaway bonus spaces.” Hartman points to one of our Boerum Hill brownstones as a prime example of how bringing visual order to the out-of-the-way space can transform it into an oasis. We transitioned this brownstone's basement into a comfortable, contemporary hang-out space for the family's teenagers and their friends. By utilizing simple design solutions and selecting kid and pet-friendly flooring and furniture, the space became a true retreat. Read the full article here. The first photo is from the project featured in the Wall Street Journal, the second is of another transformed getaway space: the cellar of our Boerum Hill Greek Revival project.

Brooklyn Botanic Gardens recently published an article featuring the backyard and rooftop gardens of our project Wild in Williamsburg. Writer Jeanne Rostaing walks the reader through the 1,000 square foot backyard first, explaining the diverse array of plants (mostly indigenous to the area) and how they function to benefit the local eco-system and waterways. Then she takes a gander through the 700 square foot green roof, which boasts fruits and vegetables. Landscape designer Marni Majorelle, owner of Alive Structures, accomplished a remarkable blend of functional design and aesthetic charm. Her work provides truly special recreational spaces for the clients' daughter and dog, as well as serene escapes for the clients from the surrounding urban chaos. -Photography by Joanne H.

Park Slope Lighthouse in the Spotlight

Park Slope Lighthouse in the Spotlight

01/31/2017

Our project Park Slope Lighthouse was published in Brownstoner's weekly feature, The Insider. The residence is the result of a great collaboration involving the client, interior designer Tamara Eaton, general contractor Pilaster Inc. and us. The modern structure we provided perfectly accentuates the clients' tastes, along with Tamara's skill in handpicking unique furnishings and creating captivating combinations of color and shape. Pilaster's craftsmanship can be seen in the beautifully executed detailed custom millwork throughout the home, giving it a tailored finish. One of the highlights of the stunning brownstone can be found in the kitchen, where a custom brass stove hood defines the room. To take in the full drama of the space, read the complete article here.
