our architects abruzzo/bodziak were over at our place taking some amazing shots of the kitchen with their new tilt-shift lens. omg...gorgeous photos! be sure to cruise over to their site to see more of our project and all the other beautiful spaces and projects they've been working on!
...or maybe this should be called 'around the borough'. this is one of my favorite stores in Williamsburg to poke around in called Moon River Chattel. As described (on apartmenttherapy.com) "an antique and home store that will charm your senses with it's vintage chic. And for those who have whole brownstones to do, they also do architectural salvage, plumbing fixtures and hardware."
It's one of those stores where you want to buy everything in it but don't know where the heck you'd put it...everything's just so cool.
it's that time of year again...getting the yard tucked in for the winter. this starts with putting the furniture away, which leads to organizing the shed a bit. It was a gorgeous weekend for an autumn outdoor activity....and enjoying some of the beauty along the way.
here's a great piece about a wonderful project our architects (and dearest cousins ;-) Abruzzo-Bodziak took on.... featured on Fast Company's awesome design blog. "The Greenhouse Project in Brooklyn is a conceptual “pop-up farm” that would be built in Cypress Hills, a low-income neighborhood with extremely high obesity rates and a dearth of access to nutritious food. A forward-thinking group of architects, engineers, and designers hopes to offer a corrective by providing hydroponic food to local residents through an off-grid mobile unit. The group estimates that it could farm 8,000 pounds of produce every 12 weeks.
The Greenhouse Project is just one of several collaborations under the direction of desigNYC."
