New York City - Location 2099
What’s a typical day for an architect and your favorite part of the job?
I have set up my office on the top floor of our Brooklyn Brownstone. I’m at my desk before 8:00am every day. The first few hours are my favorite time, before the phone starts ringing. Since most of our new work is in the Hamptons, I drive out to do field work every week. Being in the field is my favorite part of my job. As in most creative professions the rule of 5% inspiration and 95% perspiration holds true. I do live for the 5% time but I have found that I love the “creativity” of running a business. Most of my work is residential and my relationship with clients is a major driver of the creativity of the project.
What drew you to the locations you selected?
The projects I have selected are all parts of ambitious architectural projects. Each loft is more than an interior of an anonymous building but instead integral to the building as a whole. These locations, while being interiors, are a vibrant part of New York City at large.
