Rugged in the ‘Hood…

…but not really.  120 Allen Street, on Manhattan’s lower east side is referred to by New York-based, Grzywinski + Pons, as an aparthotel…a hybrid of an apartment and a hotel.  The facade fits nicely into the ‘classical grittiness’ of the neighborhood, with the industrial interior being  warm, soft, and cozy. The exterior boasts multi-tonal brickwork, zinc panels, coal-fire bricks, rusticated masonry details, and metal louvres.

Time Out…

…let’s hop over to Fire Island, NY, where an ordinary 1960’s a-frame has been renovated by Bromley Caldari Architects. The A-Frame Rethink has been transformed from underwhelming and decrepit to a “cathedral that is light-filled with the color of sky and water, complex but simple, where the pieces lock into place like a Rubik’s cube.”
