A LOBBY, LOUNGE, AND RESTAURANT COLLABORATION WITH REUNION GOODS AND SERVICES + KYLE DEWOODY
Following the eastward movement of galleries into the changing neighborhood, WCIP collaborated with Reunion Goods and Services and Kyle DeWoody to create a “living room” for the expanding Chelsea arts district in Manhattan. The space came to fruition as a connective place for artists, dealers, and art lovers alike. Our vision for the space translated into contemporary collector’s library, brimming with playful curiosities, objets d’art, rare books and obscure botanical specimens plucked from the neighboring floral district. The newly refurbished industrial interiors were seeded with live plants and furnished with coveted pieces from across the 20th century. Read more...Interior architecture by Crème.

Basking in the glow of the Hollywood Hills, Eastown opened its doors in 2014, introducing 300 new residences for the modern creative professionals flocking to the West Coast. Interior Architectural firm Commune, known widely for giving Ace Hotels their signature shine, elevated the spaces with contemporary touches: cork flooring, layered ply cabinetry, and graphic tile work throughout. Inspired by this fresh, new style of LA living, WCIP designed a 2 bed, 2 bath unit fit for the modern bachelor.

AN ARTPLACE AMERICA PROJECT WITH REVOLVE DETROIT
In the summer of 2013, WCIP collaborated with Revolve Detroit on an ArtPlace America Placemaking grant. Our goal was to transform a street into a destination. In order to grow the story of this vibrant community, we proposed activating the vacant shops with engaging public art, memorable environments, and rich participatory programming. We selected artists, local and international, to work with entrepreneurs to build out each of their spaces, while developing a rich program of events for our debut night during the Detroit Design Festival.
