Bainbridge St,
Brooklyn NY

An intergenerational coinvestment to foster a model for intergenerational living, for an elderly couple, designer / architect, and a four person family. Surgical and minimal interventions bring functionality to three dwellings while carefully respecting and restoring historical details. Taking cues from 2001 Space Odyssey, Donald Judd, and the Lion Witch and the Wardrobe, various color blocks can be repositioned and reconfigured. Material contrasts between filagreed plaster and steel, reclaimed douglas fir and reconstituted foam, are meant to elevate each other.

Belnord Kommunalka
New York, NY

Belnord Kommunalka is inspired by the kommunalka kitchens of the Soviet-era that redefined bourgeois spaces as intensely functional and collective.

Existing archways and millwork are enhanced by custom lemon lime and citrine hues.
