Judges comments:

“Very clever cutting stations are able to move. Great idea!”


“I love that the owners brought the space back to its original bones. The brick, metal columns and wood ceiling beams bring fantastic character.”


“New York loft meets industrial beauty. The use of industrial elements and raw materials is very well done.”

—Sansevero and Cronk

“We designed an element of multi-purpose into the space. Almost every furniture piece and station is mounted on casters, allowing the entire 2,700 square feet to transform into a wide-open space for larger get-togethers and celebration. On the horizon—collective runway fashion shows—our space is perfect for them.”
