Outtakes of notable past Resistance projects:  some have great merit for overcoming severe budget restraints,  some were progressive designs  for their time period......  oldies but goodies

  LIVE / WORK LOFT  -  1998   This seminal project started off  Eric Mailaender's personal work and became the first home of Resistance Design in Hells Kitchen NYC.  Although an extremely low budget project and self-built,  the space was ahead of its time and influenced other architects and designers. The loft was published in the prestigious British magazine  World of Interiors  and in a design book  Private Places.

  SORELLA RESTAURANT - 2008   This small Wine-bar and restaurant in L.E.S. was a much loved and respected place in its day.  We used reclaimed timbers from the wine making process,  notably the arched ceiling barrel staves, and the Speak-Easy style storefront using champagne riddling racks.    We also built an addition at the rear of bldg as a greenhouse type dinning room.

  UPPER EAST SIDE  WHITE BRICK  - 2008   The project objective was to return this apartment in a 1950’s "white-brick" building back to its late-modernist style and integrity,  using a minimalist white on white simplicity. The gut renovation also included opening the exterior wall up for a continuous run of windows and doors, which required some deft maneuvering through the Landmarks Commission.

  FAT HIPPO RESTAURANT -  2009   A prohibitively small L.E.S. restaurant space was enlarged by recapturing small areas,  behind existing walls and ceilings,  just enough to create a beautiful space that breathed.  The key move was exposing and restoring  the hidden original brick and structural steel ceiling,  and creating the popping new storefront that couldn't be missed
