Food and Architecture
Food and architecture yet again. My wife is an amazing cook and can craft just about anything from homemade mac and cheese to hand rolled grape leaves. I on the other hand, am fascinated by building and architecture and while doing some research on both topics I came across this place.
A 19th century carriage house turned into a cafe with offices on the second floor.
A ton of volume with natural light inside and the utilization of the existing materials makes this one of my favorite structures.
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.
