Greenwood Studios

The building got its start as an ugly sweat shop.  In spite of a tiny budget, the Brooklyn architects transformed the commercial lot into sunny studios for a textile designer.  Once they’d cut in new giant sized windows, the messy facades grew rational and monumental.  The once dark building now has glorious views of Greenwood Cemetery and the harbor beyond.  And sunlight washes over floors of polished concrete and maple plywood sliced into planks.
