Design Brooklyn

Renovation, Restoration, Innovation, Industry


Design Brooklyn shows us the architecture, interiors and design trends of New York's hottest borough. The book takes us inside restored brownstones, renovated townhouses and private gardens, and shows us the latest in public space design and architecture. With a forward by the Beastie Boys' Mike D and introduction by a Brooklyn historian, the book makes clear why a Brooklyn identity is so trend-setting in today's design world and why the design solutions found here are so distinctive.

Illustrated with more than 150 original photos, the book is organised by themes found throughout the borough's private and public spaces: vintage innovation, counterculture, modern concepts, historical renovation, green living and Brooklyn industry. The selections represent a variety of different Brooklyn neighborhoods, each with its own history, architecture and interior design trends, reflecting the personal styles of the people who live there. From BAM's Richard B Fisher Building, to Fort Greene Park, to Flavor Paper's Boerum Hill building (housing both its industrial space and a private residence), Design Brooklyn will appeal to anyone interested in urban living and design and trend-setting Brooklyn style.
