MADISON GREEN 99.9% FINISHED. JUST ADD FURNITURE

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

“This is the first time I have ever seen a urinal installed in a residence.”  Ha, that’s a quote from the architect retained by the co-op board to review all proposed alterations in this particular apartment building. He grudgingly approved our design for this bachelor pad located on the 19th floor of the south side of Madison Square Park.

WALTER FOODS RESTAURANT OPEN IN WILLIAMSBURG

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Colvm recently completed a new place for restaurateurs Dylan Dodd and Danny Minch. Frank Bruni of the New York Times says “My companions and I spent more than two and a half hours in one of its handsome booths, roaming wide and far across its menu … we started out the evening in high spirits, thanks to two attributes of Walter Foods that are emerging as absolute requisites in the Williamsburg finer-dining scene: a great-looking bar and cocktails made with thought and care. All in all Walter Foods has a buoyant feel—it’s like an Old World chophouse with a youthful swagger.”

“The dining-room ambience is pure New England, with its dark wood-beamed ceiling, antiquey prints of fishermen, and leather-cushioned booths” (Shauna Lyon, The New Yorker)

“a warm American bistro populated with a young and carefree crowd that came out to eat and drink, recession be damned. The space immediately announces itself as one you’d like to settle into: A dark wooden bar, with stools to match, is a prominent fixture, as are floor-to-ceiling windows and antique-style lighting that lend a warm glow and understated old-timey vibe. That aesthetic carries over to the food and drink, which, like the space, seems to give you exactly what you are in the mood for: Well-mixed cocktails, executed with seriousness by bow-tie–clad barkeeps.” (Gabriella Gershenson, Time Out New York)

REDKEN CORPORATE OFFICES COMPLETED

Wednesday, April 19th, 2006

It should look like a Stanly Kubrick film, “think 2001: A Space Odyssey” said Stephan Bezi, GM of Redken International about the design of their new corporate office headquarters on Fifth Avenue in New York.  I think it came out pretty spacy.
