For this week’s EZarchitecture: Work podcast we will discuss the design for the headquarters building for Diane Von Furstenberg Studio, in the fashionable meat packing district on the West side of NYC. The DVF Studio is a project from one of our favorite architectural design firm; Work AC. Like many of the other project from Work, aside from the many wonderful detailing and choice of finishes, DVF Studio also contains an interesting special feature. Want to find out what it is?

Ever hang a coat on back of a chair? Now you can do it in your closet also!
We are always on the lookout for things that we can easily add to our closet design that brings out lots of personality and character. Since we are working with a very limited amount of space, high light items that also serve a functional purpose is a huge plus. These ingenious hangers made out of used chair backs both bring a unique theme to your hanging area and serve a practical need. Although they are probably not the best for long term hanging of your delicate sweaters since they are sort of funky shaped but they would be great for areas of occasional use, like guest coat area.
Now we are going to discuss about sustainable design and green prefab homes. We came across to Michelle Kaufman’s website and blog where we read about her and the green MK Prefabricated homes.
