New York City, NY | 2013

As Architects of Records here, we worked with this prolific restaurateur on all finishes and focused instead on the rather pedestrian issues an architect faces in this city (codes, egress, inspections, etc.), which we undertook to the satisfaction of all parties involved. The space, which was a former seedy bookstore, reflects a huge change in the West Village. But, alas, was perhaps ahead of its time and closed shortly thereafter, giving one a moment to pause and consider a raw human energy that goes into these projects.
