“It was very important for me to find a situation that felt unique.”
It’s quite unusual to have a bedroom with a view of your dining room and kitchen, but that’s exactly what Event Designer David Stark was looking for when he stumbled upon this Brooklyn Heights loft with husband, artist Migguel Anggelo. He wanted a space that felt unique, and it took the help of the design-build team at MADE to turn his vision into a reality.
Though small, the kitchen feels exactly like what you would want from a chef’s kitchen: plenty of storage, and a large communal kitchen island. The living room is expansive and bright. The hallway is dark and dramatic. Each space in the converted loft plays exactly the role it needs to create a dynamic home full of unexpected moments.
Tory Burch’s Ex-Husband bounces back after C.Wonder with Cocoon9: a new concept of luxury prefab homes.
Lodged in the gardens of Mecox in Southampton is a prefab home like no other. Clocking in at 480 square feet, the Cocoon Studio boasts floor to ceiling windows, luminous high gloss panelled walls, bleached gray floors and a double-sided gas fireplace.
The essential summer crash pad: that was stylist Sarah Storm’s inspiration behind the small space’s decor. “You come home from the beach, jump in the pool, and sit around in your bathing suit” she says “perhaps with a glass of Wölffer rosé in hand” (don’t mind if we do).
The home’s textures reflect that perfectly: summer seersucker dresses the bed, the seating is rattan and the palette is composed of pale, sun drenched, washed-out hues to echo the airiness of the design.
“The Cocoon9 concept functions particularly well as breezy guest quarters or a chic poolhouse”. With great market potential in the increasingly crowded Hamptons, lets just hope the town councils won’t crack down on that too.
