XX is a 1,500 SF renovation of an existing 2 story condo in Brooklyn's Prospect Heights neighborhood. The clients, a graphic designer and a film director, challenged us to create a clear division between work and live.
We define work + live as a marriage
We kept the open plan in order to maximize flexibility. Using the circulation hallway to define a formal area of work and a formal area of recreation. The plywood and cement floor panels reinforce the transition between work and live.
Support spaces like laundry room, bathroom, and closet where arranged linearly anchored by the open work area.
Plywood mill-work was imagined to maximize flexibility. The clients wanted to display some objects but have enough storage to hide others.
Judd sought autonomy and clarity for the constructed object and the space created by it, ultimately achieving a rigorously democratic presentation without compositional hierarchy.
