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.

Hey, Monkey-Face!…

…playfulness and a touch of humor in design is delightful.  Anything that can place a smile on one’s face, at a glance, is seriously charming.  Spanish designer, Jaime Hayón has designed Miko, a chimp-like faced watch, for his Orlog watch company.  Grins!
