Name: Tom and Sara
Location: E. Williamsburg
Size: 900 sqft.
Sara and Tom are both great artists who have figured out, successfully, how to live together and make art in the same place. Their home provides a great canvas for their work plus a wonderful indoor/outdoor space in which to live...
The history of the space is industrial workspace. In fact, their living room, adjacent to their bedroom was once the spot for a giant well. Their great door lead to that well.
Sara's work has a resemblence to wallpaper but is painted on canvas, while Tom's work looks like classic Greek architecture but is paper sculpture suspended by push pins.
While they rent their apartment, they did all the repainting, kitchen, and bathroom work to make it into a comfortable livable space. Shelving is their friend and essential in a large space with no sign of a closet.
