Stepping into the studio shared by Evan and Oliver Haslegrave of the design firm hOmE, the aestetic is clear. While the space is located in an industrial building in Brooklyn, the studio/living space for these brothers exudes a warmth, comfort and familiarity. The soft lighting, open layout, large kitchen and collection of vintage objects would lend itself nicely towards gathering with friends around the large table for a drink and a chat, but Evan and Oliver have not exactly been taking it easy since the launch of their firm.
Since their 2009 launch, the brothers have designed and built ten commercial projects in New York. Even if their name is not on your radar, if you live in New York, chances are you know their work. Goat Town, Paulie Gee's and Manhattan Inn are just some of the restaurants that benefit from their laid-back design sensibility.
