This bar, in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn, has been described as an open artist studio. We worked with the artist owner and her crew of collaborators to create a space with custom lighting,repurposed materials for the bar and banquets and the feel of a party waiting to happen.Structural work such as a new beam and columns through to footings in the cellar opened up the space and allowed for a wider interior. The space had been empty for years and required a new facade and rear earthwork. The cellar height was increased and structural repair work done to maximize the cellar for storage. A large custom door and window open on to the rear yard which features a flexible hang out area with a bridge and greenery.
