WorkOf x Architonic – Red Hook Studio Tours

Posted by Walter Phillips on 30.11.2015 - Tagged as: , ,

Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York

Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York

In a remote corner on the western waterfront of Brooklyn lies Red Hook. The industrial and longtime maritime neighborhood, with its cobblestone streets and weather worn facades, has the type of patina that only comes with time. Located just beyond the reach of the last train stops, these isolated surroundings have resulted in the development of a unique creative enclave that is home to some of New York’s best artists and designers. Written by Isaac Friedman-Heiman.

Here, inside the centuries old façade their team of designers, fabricators and artists are working to “reimagine standard materials to create engaging, engineered objects.” (by Isaac Friedman-Heiman for WorkOf)
