A huge thanks to Dash Marshall for letting us know about this cool project of theirs: The Cassowary Room is a renovation of a single space in a Tribeca loft. It was originally built as a caviar warehouse in the 1890s and then renovated in 2005 before being purchased by the current owners. We rolled back time to create the caviar boss’s office as if it had never been touched, only upgraded with wifi and air-conditioning. That meant designing custom lighting and woodwork and then collaborating with craftsmen to make sure everything is just right. With dutch doors the space works well as a private office when completely closed, or can be left open for more connection to the adjacent living spaces. When the owners’ children are old enough, the Cassowary Room will transition gracefully to a playroom within earshot of the kitchen. I’m blown away. The woodwork is gorgeous! I would LOVE a space like this to get away from all the cats while I blog (one is sitting right next to me as I type this trying to chew on my earbuds).
