This week we’re previewing a couple of projects being completed by members of theSweeten network. Both renovations are still early on in the construction phase, but we’re so excited about them that we had to share!

First up is this retrofit with GSDO (you may remember their awesome work from this post). Adam Glickman & Lauren Schlesinger invited us out to Williamsburg to check out the progress on their adaptive re-use of a former Paper Doily Factory. The 7,000 sqft structure will soon have two apartments on the upper level; the new home of the Williamsburg Neighborhood Nursery School will be on the ground floor.

Everyone was hard at work on the nursery school — soon this space will be full of 4 year olds!

Upstairs, a bathroom plan is tacked up in the first apartment.

Six North-facing windows inside the second apartment wash the space with a lovely, even light.

Shiny new windows are already in. Can’t wait to see what else is in store for this former paper doily factory (circa 1902)!

Second on the list is another retrofit with Peter Maslow of Maslow Interiors. Peter has just gutted this 1000 sqft  home in the West Village and is getting started building the new plan. The former 2 bed, 1 bath will be transformed into an oversized 1 bedroom with both a full and a half-bath.  Peter is also relocating the entire kitchen, which, after the renovation is completed, will open onto a living room / library. And like the last project we saw from Peter, this one will also include  some unique finishes.

Here’s Peter.

The future master bedroom, can’t wait to see what Peter has in store!
