ARCHITECTURE // Greenlight Bookstore
We rejoined the good folks at Greenlight to design the second location of this wonderful independently owned Brooklyn bookstore, having completed their original Fort Greene location in 2010. Located in a new construction building on Flatbush Avenue, this project challenged us to create a feeling of space and brightness in a narrow storefront with limited natural light. Our design scheme incorporated custom lighting coves, along with columns gently flared to meet the ceiling and birch millwork to echo the palette of the original Fort Greene store.
I worked primarily on the schematic design of the shelving layout and design development phase of the project.My principal role in this project was directing all FFE coordination with the clients. Through this process I established working relationships with local, domestic, and international vendors, artists, and manufacturers. I also established methods and guidelines for future FFE endeavors for the firm.
My involvement in the project centered around developing several schemes via the schematic and design development phases, ultimately resulting in a combination hybrid that met the clients’ expansion needs.
