We’ve noted the farm-to-table redesign down the street and the refurbished pied-à-terre on the other side of town. Here’s a look at the projects stimulating us now, New York City.

Did you see the townhouse seeking transformation? Did you see the rooftop nightclub just two blocks over, with a soft opening next week? If not, we have the latest information. You may think you’re up-to-date on the latest new concept on every space adding an addition or updating. In a major metropolitan area like NYC, with little-known delights and spots unseen, we’ve unveiled some well-guarded secrets. We’ve tracked down the redesigns still underway, as well as those coming soon.

In order to adopt a new design outlook, it’s necessary to go further than our own capability. It’s necessary to study the philosophy and craftsmanship of others.

We’ve assembled an archive that is a perfect match for your distinguished taste. It’s a place to discover the projects of fellow passionate architects, contractors, interior designers, and novice design professionals. It’s the revelation on envied redesigns and on how they develop from concept to completion. Get to know the faces behind New York City’s most-talked-about restorations and repairs. With a glimpse inside these recent renovations and renderings, we hope to spark your own inspired fire.

Remember that neglected warehouse you always envisioned turning into loft apartments? Think of that rooftop you envisioned undergoing a terrace conversion. Or there’s that deserted space that screams potential for a new java joint.

Perhaps these are the ideas that need extra inspiration and a nudge of confidence to move forward.
