Seven on benches: the house of a large family in New York

Life is an adventure. And the more the company, the more fascinating the journey. Today you have a house that can be taken as a model not only for families with many children, but also for families where there are many relatives living under one roof. Imagine the situation: you are happy parents waiting for your seventh child, and you really want to finally create your own nest in the big city. For example, in New York. What kind of building will attract you in the first place? The correct answer is an old, collapsing garage for a motorcycle. It was his dilapidated walls that became the basis for the five-storeyed house of our heroes' dreams - with huge bedrooms, a kitchen on the roof and a basketball hall. But most importantly, the sponsors of this bright, unusual interior were the hosts themselves - the couple Novogradts. This is the first project of self-taught designers Robert andCourtney Novogarts (Robert and Cortney Novogratz), they made from scratch. Prior to this, the prolific duo dealt exclusively with "transformation" and "ennobling", that is why working on a project of their own house in the place of a 2-level garage in Manhattan became a very exciting period for them. Mother-heroine calls her new house eighthChild and admits that the absence of their specialized education with their spouse always went only to benefit the work: "We never doubted our own strengths and were not afraid to make mistakes. Because when you create your own rules, it's easy to follow them. " For their own home, the authors of the project developed2 main principles: organization and scale. First of all, there is an ideal order and free space (after all, living in a kennel, it is almost impossible to grow free). For example, the main highlight of the living room is the garageDoors. Raising them, the family Novogratz in one movement realizes for itself the cherished dream of many inhabitants of megacities - the interconnection of the interior and the cityscape. The main inspiration for the couple, of course,There were children: in this house everything is focused primarily on their present and future. In particular, the white walls are designed to stimulate the imagination and shade the objects of contemporary art, which, according to the spouses, with young nails should form the artistic taste of the younger generation. Our opinion you think that the modernArt is expensive? Create it yourself! Go along with the children for courses in painting, portrait or calligraphy. Practical work done under the strict guidance of a professional will very quickly acquire the status of family relics, and if you manage to sufficiently interest the art of one of the children, do not doubt: the interior will be replenished with fresh masterpieces with an enviable regularity. As for the interior items, theyThey gathered according to the principle "from the world by thread". In this house, along with branded things, which even during seasonal sales are not cheaper than a car, there are penny items collected in flea markets, and even things from IKEA.
