FACE Design and Fabrication : 2007 - 2009

FACE Design and Fabrication : 2007 - 2009

Face d+f, located in Brooklyn, NY is set up as a combined shop and studio with a constant discourse between the two.  Conceived as spatial equipment plugged into NYC’s existing urban fabric.  Projects range in scale from custom door pulls to furniture, storefronts, to kit-of-parts living structures.  

Personal responsibilities included conceptual design, 3-d modelling of prototypes, shop drawings, physical fabrication, patina work, welding and installation, construction administration and orchestra conduction.  

Both principals were trained as architects and met while working at Stephen Holl's office.  When the office won the Storefront for Art and Architecture commission, Todd and Reuben offered to build the project and thus began Face.
