An older apartment—about 110 square feet—located in Carroll Gardens, it’s on a tree-lined residential street with decades old mom and pop shops mixed with new hip joints within walking distance.
Built-in cabinetry had been spared over the years and many previous tenants—and the dark original stain was a rich contrast to glass, chrome, gold and brass accents. Architecturally detailed white walls also contrasted elegantly with sleek modern furniture.
Did we mention location? The building faces a neighborhood park and is graced with large windows which let in loads of natural sunlight and natural scenery—in a comparable vein, glass-topped
tesso desks allow the sunshine to continue through the space while minimizing visual clutter.
For the work spaces, tps file cabinets fit perfectly under the desks and the arched back of the
bubble chairs offer a bit of ergonomic support for long days at a laptop. Completing the look—and function—an ernest bar cart and astilla glasses were at the ready for post-production celebrations.
