Video Tour of Brooklyn Studio to Two Bedroom Conversion
Something about Adam Finkelman’s Brooklyn transformation of an open-floor-planned studio into a two bedroom apartment really resonated with our readers. Perhaps it was his imaginative use of reclaimed materials or the one-month’s rent budget for the conversion or how relatable his situation was (i.e. how do you create a functional, affordable living situation in an expensive neighborhood?). Whatever the reason, people loved the apartment.
Our good friend Kirsten Dirksen from Fair Companies managed to catch up with Adam and his roommate for a video tour of the space. Besides seeing the space itself in living–and moving–color, the two roommates elaborate on the design creativity that went into the space as well as the lifestyle creativity that fuels their lives and pays their bills. The space is used as an popup restaurant, concert/jam session venue and, of course, carpentry lab. Between their various endeavors, they offset their living expenses while maximizing the space’s utility–not to mention living a pretty cool looking life. Check it out.
