professionals to help them create distinct spaces as well as to bring light throughout what was once a large, somewhat dark but open space. But Sean doesn't like to leave everything to the design professionals. He enjoys building stuff and has contributed quite a few pieces as well as design innovations to his and Daphne's home. With two small children, the space manages to feel both sophisticated and like an impromptu playground. There's room for the kids to play, the adults to feel like kids, and everyone to feel very civilized, in quick succession. The loft is replete with trap bookcases, mobile seating, bike parking, cruise ship doors, elevator doors, foot-pedaled-plumbing, whimsical lighting, plush couches, and thousands of books. It's a dream of a home for children and adults alike, but the family is pulling up a decade and a half of roots and moving to Brooklyn!
