Shape Up Collection by Roll & Hill

The Shape Up Collection of lighting by Roll & Hill was designed by Seattle-born, Brooklyn-based Ladies & Gentlemen Studio. The largest of the pieces is Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier, which perhaps does the best job of highlighting the geometric playfulness of the collection. A modular system of cords and hubs, Shape Up 5-Piece Chandelier can be composed “in response to a space’s architecture and function.” The Cone and Hemisphere are available in three finishes: blackened steel, brushed brass, an...

Serial Remodelers Settle Down: A Brooklyn Townhouse Reinvention from Elizabeth Roberts

One good remodeling experience led Jean Lee and her husband, Tzu-Wei Lee, to another—and another. In their quest for the perfect family home, the two—she’s a recent law school grad, he’s a trader, and they have three girls under five—are deep-dive renovators and serial gamblers in the New York City real estate market. After falling in love at work, they took on their first gut overhaul, a brownstone on Garfield Place, a choice block in North Park Slope. They worked with CWB Architects and thorou...

The Sentimental Minimalist: A Young Architect’s Bed Stuy Townhouse Makeover

Like so many architects, Jess Thomas prefers a clean-lined, clutter-free look. But she also welcomes in warmth and more than a touch of sentiment. That was especially the case in the gut renovation she and her husband, Hagan Hinshaw, a director-producer, recently completed of a formerly crumbling brownstone in Brooklyn’s Bed Stuy. A founding partner of Brooklyn’s Shapeless Studio, Thomas received her Master of Architecture from Columbia and is an alum of design-build firm Made, a longstanding me...

Speakeasy Chic: Philly’s Latest Hip Hotel Embraces Its Industrial Past

Wm. Mulherin’s Sons is an American tale: an Irishman who immigrated to America at age 15 and made it big, William Mulherin housed his award-winning whiskey bottling operation in a corner factory building in Philadelphia’s Fishtown. Later his sons took over the successful enterprise, only to have it all shut down by prohibition. Years later the landmark building, which still bares his name, is playing host to a new breed of American makers and entrepreneurs. True to its history, Wm. Mulherin’s So...

With a Rockstar Edge: A Renovated LA Bungalow for a Musician, Off-Tour

Even rockstars need a home base. When Brendon Urie, lead singer for Panic! at the Disco, and his wife Sarah stumbled upon a 1953 bungalow in Los Angeles, they loved its midcentury bones—not so much the stuffy Mediterranean-style touches the previous owners had added over the years. They enlisted a friend, designer and stylist Ashley Drost of housewares shop Meadow at Dusk, to transform the kitchen and master bathroom, but ended up “gutting almost every single room down to the studs,” Drost says....

Architect Visit: A Renovated Farmhouse in Bedford with Scandinavian Influences

In Bedford, New York, architect Rafe Churchill transforms a small farmhouse, owned by the same family for 30 years, into a modern weekend house with a subtle dash of Scandinaivan style. Over the years, parts of the house had been renovated to accommodate short-term needs, while others had been ignored, so the “interiors showed an evolved history,” Churchill says. He modernized the home by raising ceiling heights and creating an open floor plan, and worked closely with interior designer Kathryn F...

Indoor-Outdoor Living: An LA Ranch Rehab by Barbara Bestor and DISC Interiors

When Sarah Lambert and John Dolan bought their 1940s ranch house in the hills of LA’s Studio City, it was the lofty setting, not the structure itself, that sold them. The place was a warren of pokey little rooms that lacked a connection to the magnificent yard, and the couple planned to get to know the place before righting its wrongs. That test drive ended up extending for nearly a decade, during which the couple (she’s a pastry chef who gives private lessons; he directs films and commercials) ...

Roost Apartment Hotels: The Extended Stay Hotel Reinvented

Roost Hotels, conceived as a hybrid between an Airbnb rental and a boutique hotel, recently opened its second Philadelphia location overlooking Rittenhouse Square (the first venture is in downtown Philadelphia), in a bid to attract the next generation of business nomads. Roost cofounder and CEO Randall Cook called on NY-based Morris Adjmi Architects, a veteran of stylish projects like the Wythe in NYC, to orchestrate the interiors of both locations. The designers also paid attention to the techn...
