Located in the industrial neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn, this is a project for Saipua - a small, family- run business dedicated to small batch production of handmade soaps and unique floral arrangements. As their business evolved, and having outgrown their original storefront space, the clients sought to relocate their shop in a new facility that could house both production and retail under one roof, without compromising the unique identity that is Saipua. This identity is more of a spirit than an aesthetic which emerges from the ever-changing juxtaposition between the handmade and the found object. Here, vintage everyday objects meet hand-wrapped soap and delicate, rugged floral arrangements in a way which evokes a sense of familiarity and fosters an intimate connection with the visitor.
