storefront interior discovered


storefront interior discovered
Originally uploaded by missmoon
in the design of the ice cream shop space, we were going to build in a clearstory of windows above the storefront, but in demolition on thursday, the guys uncovered the original clearstory from 1928! 

with a little cleaning and restoring, the storefront will be returned to something close to its original design. i love it!

we're also going to leave the I-beam exposed at the top of the southern and western walls. very old-new, high-low, you know?
