It is a typical situation: first-time buyers of a small Brooklyn apartment in need of a gut renovation spend almost all their savings on the down payment and hence need to do an extremely economical renovation.
Apart from using salvaged materials and simple Do-It-Yourself detailing, the biggest impact on design and cost was achieved through a strategy that could best be described as “Pimp my Ikea”: the Swedish furniture company’s mass-produced, inexpensive products were used in unintended ways and altered with simple, at times almost surgical interventions to create highly customized designs that respond to the unique spatial, practical and aesthetic concerns of the overall project.
