Inspired by the craft of building and architecture
Monday, July 26, 2010
We just finished dinner with a woman who lives in the Riverhouse building in New York City. It is a complete eco-friendly building in Battery Park City and it looks amazing. I like the idea of living in a modern environment in New York. The look is so clean and the surroundings so beautiful that you can just imagine relaxing here after a busy day in the city.
The lobby and all the residences were designed by David Rockwell. The fireplace surround is pretty cool and really balances the volume of the entire space.
The building itself and the residences all have super clean lines and a modern look.
I do like the light tone of the cabinetry with the clean white walls and countertops.
And, many of the windows are triple layered as to keep the building more temperate. Not too bad. I could definitely get used to living here.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
