Ode to the small projects

Small but not small in our hearts, it’s the tiny projects that keep us going, help us to learn and give us a foot in the door when it comes to trying something new. Sure they may not be big , but without them, I can honestly say there would be no way to take on the big projects. Hopefully you enjoy them!

Upper West Side Kitchen NYC

For example, one can see a small kitchen renovation project. This kitchen was initially many years paster an overhaul. It went from being a largely inefficient utilization of space to being modern, stylish, having plenty of workspace for a kitchen its size, and on top of all of that have a washer/dryer set installed. I would be happy to cook a meal in this kitchen. Note lovely barn sink and practical and practical subway tile backsplash.

Upper East Side entertainment room NYC

Luxury media room / office rework in the Upper-East Side of Manhattan

Another example was this design of this TV wall unit. The scope expanded from designing and building the cabinet to overhauling the whole room: new light fixtures, new fireplace, new wallpaper, and refurbishing the office space cabinets. The most unique feature of this wall unit includes a wire mesh fascia to allow the hifi AV air circulation keeping the electronics cool no matter how loud you play the music out of these lovely speakers. Keeping the speakers as close to seated ear-level as possible, you really get grabbed into whatever TV show you are watching or music you are listening to. I pushed the client a little towards asymmetry to allow for a more whimsical display of their art and books. We also lucked out as the client had the perfect piece of art to hang over the brand new mantle. Either way, don’t assume that any job is too small for me: just reach out and we will discuss!
