  3. 3. Over the past year, we have experienced an unprecedented time in our country; one that warranted an unprecedented response and changed the way that we lead our daily lives. I have to say, I saw it bring out the best in people. Empathy, humanity, and support took center stage as neighbors helped fellow neighbors; entire communities pulled together to offer support to one another; and family and friends reached out to help each other, as well as strangers in need. We rallied and came through it together. In this “new normal,” our families adapted like never before. Our living rooms became classrooms and our bedrooms may have transformed into temporary offices, but one thing became clear: this was not about being stuck at home; rather, it was about getting to enjoy time at home with our loved ones. More than ever, we’ve seen firsthand the critical role that home plays in our lives. For months, we all spent our days moving from room to room, finding ways to bring the outside world to life in our own spaces. Home has never been more of a safe haven for us and our families, and now is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of that time at home to make it the one-of-a-kind oasis that your family deserves. In this latest issue, you’ll find some of our best tips for elevating the feel of your home. We invite top private chef Edouard Massih to give you an inside look at his idea of the perfect kitchen for entertaining in your own space. Though you may not have been able to travel this past year, we’re taking you on a virtual journey to Venice, the birthplace of terrazzo, to inspire your take on flooring design. And three artists share their thoughts on commissioning the perfect artwork to enhance the beauty of your space. So, whether you’re kicking back with your immediate family or planning ahead to the next time friends stop by for a visit, we hope this issue inspires you to get creative with your space.

  6. 6. Luxury homes and luxury cars go hand in hand. Michael Prichinello, Owner and Director of Classic Car Club Manhattan, shares his insight on the symbiotic relationship between cars and homes. N I C E H O U S E , A beautiful car parked in front of a beautiful house is an unbeatable visual combination. 6
  7. 7. CENTURY 21: How do you think luxury homes and luxury/classic cars complement one another? Michael Prichinello: Ordinary design is completed to check a box—it’s about necessary everyday objects that exist in the background. It’s all function, which is usually limited, and no form. Luxury homes and cars are both objects of high design; before either is built, a designer has a vision or a dream composed of shapes and function. Next, there’s the pursuit of addressing a need, such as shelter or mobility at the highest level, and shaping it into the sculpture of their vision. A beautiful luxury car in the driveway of an equally special home is one of the greatest visual combinations there is. C21: What does a person’s choice of car say about them? MP: A car is like a pair of shoes: it’s a window into someone’s approach to life. A car can identify someone’s dedication to utility or their passion for irrational speed. Flamboyance, conservativism, adventure and precision—a car can be a mirror of who we are and what we’re thinking. C21: How can you choose a car that suits your home? MP: Cars can complement a home by considering the era of the house and the environment it’s in. For example, a mid- century modern home on the beach pairs nicely with an early-year International Harvester Scout, while a contemporary, cantilevered affair in the hills of Westchester would do well to have a technological wonder like the McLaren 720S in the driveway. C21: What should classic car owners consider when purchasing a home? MP: A classic car is more than a vehicle; it’s a piece of antique machinery that requires constant upkeep. A garage with two or more bays is ideal so that an owner can move around the car and perform needed maintenance comfortably indoors. Also consider a garage that is as much of a gallery as it is a utility. Think of Cameron Frye’s garage in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” One part functionality, 10 parts display case. C21: What’s the most impressive automotive integration you’ve seen at a residence? MP: If you live at 200 11th Avenue in Manhattan, you not only enjoy sweeping views of the Hudson River and proximity to fine dining in the West Village, but you also have your own private sky garage. Each residence has its own car entrance and elevator that brings the car and driver to their apartment, high above 11th Avenue. Owning a car of consequence in New York can be difficult, but 200 11th made it both convenient and a feat of engineering. C21: Should people’s considerations when buying a home be similar to when they’re buying a car? MP: The considerations of a car and home are similar. Both must adapt to their environment, seasonality, topography and design, but at the end of the day, Classic Car Club supports splurges of meteoric proportions. Sometimes homes or cars just speak to you. Don’t do too much matching. Just act on the impulse.  Classic Car Club Manhattan is located at Pier 76 in Manhattan, New York.

  8. 8. ARTT H I S T I M E , I T ’ S P E R S O N A L Commissioning artwork for your new house is a fantastic way to personalize your space and establish the style of your home. “SCAPE#1”,byKaneGrose. 8
  9. 9. ith the purchase of a new house comes a whole lot of wall space to fill. Rather than shoehorning your existing artwork into new spaces where it might not be the perfect fit, consider commissioning a piece that is uniquely designed for your new home, taking into account lighting, the dimensions of the room, the color palette in the space, and your own unique taste. Commissioning artwork might sound daunting, but it’s actually a fairly straightforward process that allows you to express yourself, and to decorate your home in a way that maximizes your enjoyment of it. We spoke with three commissioning artists to understand the nuts and bolts of commissioning your own artwork. Why commission when you can just buy? If you need to fill a blank wall, it might seem easier to just search artworks until you find one that fits the space well enough. But a little extra effort will result in something that’s the perfect complement to your home and its inhabitants. Artist Lanie Mann, who is based in Washington, D.C., says, “It’s extremely special to have a piece of art where you’ve worked directly with the artist—and an original piece that reflects you as the homeowner. You have a part in the creative process; this is something you can’t just go out and buy from a shop or gallery.” Brooklyn-based geometric abstractionist Kane Grose points out that personalizing your artwork will ensure that it fits with your color and style preferences, saying, “You can customize artwork to fit your interior design palette, which is not easy to do when you’re searching through paintings on the internet. With a commission, you can customize a work so it’s 100 per cent personal to you.” From an artist’s point of view, Grose says that working on commissions is rewarding in terms of the end result. “It’s great doing commissions, because it allows you to really imbue an artwork with your client’s personality,” he says. “Rise and Shine”, by Lanie Mann. Choosing an artist If you google “artist commission,” you will be presented with hundreds of thousands of search results, and many of them won’t deliver what you’re looking for. “Unless you know stylistically what you’re looking for, there’s a lot of searching involved,” Grose says. “The best place to look is online; Instagram is good—a lot of artists show their work there, so you can see their back catalogs just by scrolling. If you’re looking in person, a great idea is to find your local art precinct, and just go and visit the galleries there; often they will be showcasing the work of local artists.” Once you’ve found an artist that you like, usually it’s not too difficult to get in touch with them to start the commissioning process. “Keep a list of artists’ work you are most drawn to,” Mann offers. “Most artists have a website, and there is usually a way to reach out to an artist directly to find out if they do commissioned work, and how they structure the commission process.” Think about it Before you start the commissioning process, make sure you have a good idea of the direction you want to take, the style of painting that you like, and exactly what you want from the artist. “Commissioning a piece of art is a special thing, so you want to make sure that you love the work of the artist you will be working with,” says Mann, and Grose agrees. “You are 9
  10. 10. choosing an artist because of their particular style, so don’t go into the relationship expecting them to be able to do, or be comfortable doing, something that doesn’t fit with the work that they produce,” he says. “Size and color are important to consider,” says Mann. “Think about what you love about the artist’s work, so you can communicate this with them, and it will be reflected in your commissioned piece.” Then there are the more practical things, like time and budget. If you need something quickly, or if you can only pay a certain amount, these factors might affect whether or not you can work with a particular artist. “Consider that, because it’s a commission, it’s more of a custom piece, and it will take a little longer to get delivered versus buying what’s available in the artist’s gallery,” New York painter Jen Ramos points out, continuing, “you should also consider your budget, because that will determine how much art you can afford.” The artist needs to know As with any custom project, the more information the artist has, the better your commissioned work will turn out. All three artists agreed that the most important question they will ask you relates to their existing work: which particular paintings are you drawn to from their collection, and why? Aside from that, Mann has an information- gathering approach. “I ask about colors— usually they have a palette in mind—and for any inspiration photos. I am also happy to receive photos or swatches to help inform the palette. I don’t necessarily hope to completely match a color scheme—I think it’s best when the art can complement the space without being too ‘matchy’.” Ramos wants to know about the space, as well as who lives in the home. “I’ll ask them for photos of their space where the painting is going to hang, whether they have any children or if they’re married, what colors they like, what colors they don’t like, and how large they want the artwork to be,” she says. Grose says, “For me, it would be what the purpose of the piece is—if it’s a statement piece, or if it’s something that’s going in a low- traffic area. Do they want it to be the center of attention, or to bring out other features in the room?” If an artist is local, they might visit your home to get a better understanding of the space. “I’ve often visited local clients’ homes to take a look at the space where they want to hang the piece,” says Mann. “I can advise on what size might look best, and often recommend or tape out for them (using painter’s tape) the size of the canvas so we can visualize it in the space.” “If they’re local and they want me to visit, I’ll definitely do that,” says Grose. “If possible, it’s always good to see a space first—but at the very least, a few pictures with different angles of the space are really helpful.” Don’t get rejected Keep in mind that, even if you want to work with a particular artist, sometimes they will turn down the commission. This usually only happens if you are requesting something that doesn’t fit with their ethos or aesthetic. “It really depends on what it is that the client wants,” says Ramos. “I’ve had people contact me to do something that was very different to what I do, and I have declined it.” To ensure that you don’t get too far down the commissioning path and then get disappointed, do your research, and engage in proper communication with the artist. Mann says, “If I feel that the request is too far from what I do as an artist, I will be up-front about it. I encourage having a phone call to discuss the process; I feel like an actual conversation helps connect us a bit better, and the connection is an important piece of a commission. I’ve worked with so many incredible people, and I love the connections that I’ve made.” The ins and outs Commissioning an artwork is a collaborative effort, so both parties will need to agree on what’s expected. After initial discussions, the artist will provide you with a document that describes the expected piece, including time frames, budget and inclusions. You will usually be asked for a deposit, and both parties will sign the agreement. 10
  11. 11. ABOUT THE ARTISTS Lanie Mann is based in Washington, D.C., and creates “loose and layered” works, bursting with color and optimism. Her work encompasses figures, portraits and abstract composition. www.laniemannart.com Kane Grose is a Brooklyn-based geometric abstractionist, creating striking works with clean lines, vibrant colors and a splash of optical illusion. He calls his work pure abstraction, which he says “removes reality and allows the senses their free rein.” www.kanegrose.com Jen Ramos is a New York–based artist specializing in abstract works that mix bold and muted colors to great effect. Her work is underscored by feelings of happiness, joy, hope and sometimes a little chaos. www.jenramos.com In terms of timing, it will depend on the size, the process, the amount of work involved and whether you would like the work framed, but you can expect anywhere from two weeks to a couple of months before your artwork is ready. Expect to pay slightly more than you would for an off-the-shelf painting; usually an artist will charge a premium for the customized work. But pricing will depend on who you choose to work with, the size of the piece, the amount of work involved, and how advanced the artist is in their career. On average, the artists that we spoke to sell commissioned works in the range of $1,000–$5,000. It might be a little more effort, but an artwork that is a combination of your personality and the work of an artist that you admire can be the difference between a house and a home.  “RememberWhen”,byJenRamos 11
  12. 12. A G E N T PATRICIA O’CALLAGHAN CENTURY 21 Beutler & Associates Spokane, Washington Where are you located? Beautiful Spokane, Washington. Our office is located in the business district, where we have access to our crown jewel, Riverfront Park, as well as the Spokane River and tons of shops and restaurants. How would you describe the area? What are the things that would attract people to live there? It’s clean, green, walkable, drivable and affordable. Our city is known for being “Near Nature, Near Perfect.” We are also known for our wonderful lakes and camping, and the restaurant scene is currently capturing attention—we have several celebrity chefs and James Beard Award winners. What property trends are you seeing in Spokane at the moment? Is there anything remarkable about the properties there? Multiple offers, escalation clauses, and homes going well above list price. We are also seeing an influx of cash buyers coming in from other states after several articles were published about Spokane being one of the best places to live. I think the thing that makes our properties so remarkable is the pride of ownership that Spoke residents show in the care of their homes. If home is where the heart is, Spokane has a lot of heart. What style of homes are in the area, predominantly? Spokane has it all! Old historic mansions, amazing mid-century modern, ’50s flats, cozy bungalows, new construction, farms and acreage, you name it! There is a home for everyone. What is there to do in and around the town? There are so many things! Some of my favorites are the parks, especially Manito Park and Botanical Gardens. Manito Park has been around for more than 110 years—there’s an arboretum, botanical gardens and a conservatory, as well as five major garden areas. Manito Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed the grounds of Central Park in New York, and he later had his sons design a series of parks around Spokane so that everyone in the city was always close to some green space. A little further out is Palouse Falls State Park—even though it seems quite remote (there is no cell service, and there are no busy roads nearby), you can take a day trip there to hike around and see the beautiful waterfall. It’s a two-hour drive each way, but it’s definitely worth it. I also love First Friday, when the city and region’s art is shown in art galleries and businesses across downtown Spokane. The Lilac Bloomsday Run—a 12-kilometer run that passes through neighborhood festivities—is held annually on the first Sunday in May, and is a great charity event. Is there much tourism in the region? Absolutely. Imagine being the major hub for shopping, medical treatment and outings for people from Idaho, Montana and Canada. People come for the regular big-city attractions, as well as our outdoor adventure and historic past. How far is your town from the nearest major city? We are the major city; Spokane is the second largest city in Washington, and the 100th largest city in the United States. We are 4.5 hours across the Cascades to Seattle, which is a beautiful drive or a 1.5-hour flight. We’re a six-hour drive to Portland, or a one-hour flight. We are very accessible, and are becoming more and more so each year with so many added direct flights. What are some of your favorite businesses or attractions in the region? Currently, my favorite restaurant is the Inland Pacific Kitchen, which people here know as the IPK. Its menu is seasonal, and the chef uses fresh, local ingredients. It also has a full craft cocktail bar with INSIGHTS Patricia O’Callaghan 12
  13. 13. local and international beverage options. I love to sit at the bar above the presentation station, where you get a beautiful show watching the chef dress the plates. If you are into Art Deco design, the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox is on the Historic Register as one of the best examples of this era. This theater opened in 1931, and people say that the architect, Robert Reamer, haunts the space—he has been seen wandering around the theater, inspecting its features. Another favorite is also on the Historic Register: The Historic Davenport Hotel. It’s a beautiful establishment, designed by architect Kirtland Cutter, and is something of a regional landmark for the area. The hotel’s rooms and halls are a huge drawcard for history and architecture buffs, as well as people who just love beauty and grandeur. One of my favorite things to do is sit under the Tiffany glass skylights while enjoying a cup of tea and watching all the visitors milling around. For the more casual visitor, it’s no secret that the craft brewery scene is hopping in Spokane. Many Spokane breweries source local ingredients to create their concoctions, and share their love of beer with locals and visitors alike. One of my favorites is Iron Goat Brewery, which has an amazing menu for pizza lovers and vegans! Why do these places stand out? Rich with culture and local pride, all the places I have mentioned make Spokane special. I moved to Los Angeles when I was 18, and after 10 years I came back. Spokane draws people home, and it’s an easy choice to stay. Anyone looking in the Spokane area, call me. Let me give you a tour and show you what makes Spokane a wonderful place to live! AWARD -WINNING FARE Spokane is a hotspot for inspired cuisine, and is home to three chefs talented enough to be shortlisted for the James Beard Awards. Wandering Table, Adam Hegsted Now located in the Kendall Yards neighborhood in Spokane, Wandering Table grew out of a pop-up restaurant that traveled the northwest. At its bricks and mortar location, the restaurant focuses on locally sourced food, shared meals, quality and simplicity. In 2016, Chef and Owner Adam Hegsted was a semifinalist in the in the Best Chef Northwest category of the James Beard Awards, and, with numerous local restaurants and food festivals under his Eat Good Group banner, he is an active participant in the culinary growth of Spokane. www.thewanderingtable.com Fleur de Sel, Laurent Zirotti With an impressive history of culinary education and experience in France, it’s no surprise that Laurent Zirotti’s food is heavily influenced by the cuisine of The Republic. Fleur de Sel, the restaurant that he runs with his wife, Patricia, features regional bistro French cooking, as well as Northern Italian dishes inspired by Zirotti’s family heritage.

  14. 14. MIKE FERRANTE 21 Mike Team of CENTURY 21 HomeStar Solon, Ohio Where are you located? The 21 Mike Team covers all of northeast Ohio, greater Cleveland and Akron areas. How would you describe the area? What are the things that would attract people to live there? We have a great cost of living—housing is very affordable. Folks from overseas and out of state are often amazed at the relative mansions with land that they can buy within their budget. Our area has some of the finest homes around. For example, Shaker Heights is a well-known suburb of Cleveland with gorgeous, castle-like estates on tree-lined streets. Moreland Hills, Hunting Valley, Waite Hill—these are all suburbs known for their expansive estates and enormous homes. And, in contrast, Cleveland proper still has homes selling for $30,000 and less. What style of homes are in the area, predominantly? While we have some areas of historic homes, most of greater Cleveland is what I’d characterize as suburban. We have a huge number of post–World War II bungalows, Cape Cods, and ranches. Additionally, we have areas of gentrification, like Ohio City, Tremont, and Gordon Square, where homes are being torn down to make way for modern houses and luxury townhomes. What is there to do in and around your area? Northeast Ohio has more than its share of parks, golf courses, and other green space. We’re right on Lake Erie, which is considered to be the best fishing lake of the Great Lakes, especially for walleye. We have three pro sports teams—even more if you consider minor leagues. We have a theater district second only to New York City, and we have an abundance of bars, Above: Cleveland is right on Lake Erie, giving residents and visitors ample choice for fishing and water sports.

Cleveland is a cultural melting pot, with various ethnic neighborhoods boasting amazing food and specialty shops (Slavic Village, Little Italy and Chinatown, for example). How far is your town from the nearest major city? We are located in a suburb of Cleveland called Solon. One of the delightful things about Cleveland is the fact that we have so many big-city amenities but lack many of the issues, such as hours of gridlock traffic. Even during rush hour, we can get to downtown in less than an hour—a drive that takes about 30 minutes during other times. Public transportation is abundant, but most people drive since driving is easy. What are some of your favorite businesses and attractions in your region? There are just too many to list. Besides everything I mentioned previously, here are some more favorites: • Tommy’s Restaurant, in a neighborhood called Coventry Village in Cleveland Heights, has an incredible, eclectic menu that serves everyone from carnivores to vegans (we’re vegan in our household). • Cedar Point in Sandusky is an easy trip, and it’s considered one of the best amusement parks in the world—especially if you love roller coasters! • Little Italy is one of our favorite food spots, from fine and casual dining to the pastries and coffee at Presti’s Bakery. • Chagrin Falls is a gorgeous little town, named for the river and falls at its center, that is completely walkable. We’ll sometimes just take a ride there to walk around and grab a bite to eat. The town is known for its Cherry Blossom Festival in the spring. Mike Ferrante 15
  16. 16. JENNIFER MCBRIDE CENTURY 21 Curran & Oberski Northville, Michigan Where are you located? My CENTURY 21® office is based in Northville, and I do the majority of my business in and around Northville and the surrounding areas, which is mostly metro Detroit. I grew up here in Northville. I moved away for quite some time—did the big-city living—then I came back with my family. It’s definitely a place that you want to come back to if you leave. How would you describe the area? What are the things that would attract people to live there? The major thing is that it offers so many beautiful neighborhoods. The homes are beautiful, and range from historic to brand-new construction. There’s a little bit of everything for everyone. There’s a great downtown, and great restaurants. It’s not commercialized, so you’re not going to get chain restaurants and chain shops. It’s very boutiquey, with cute shops and restaurants. There are quite a few historic buildings and homes, particularly in downtown, which gives it a real community feel. It’s very family-oriented here. I think it is because of the things that we put on for families, like events, festivals, carnivals—a lot of things for the community. If you live here, you can just go right down the street, grab dinner and hit one of these festivals, and it’s a great weekend. You feel like you’ve gotten out, yet you didn’t have to drive far and there’s just so much to do. What property trends are you seeing in Northville at the moment? As far as properties, it’s one of the most desirable areas to live—people are always going to want to live here. The school districts are first-rate. The value of homes stay up; if anything, we are one of the areas with the highest increases in values, so that makes Northville pretty unique. It’s not overpopulated, either, which makes it desirable. As far as prices, the range is a little bit higher because it is so sought after. People tend to want to stay here because they know their homes are going to continue to increase in value. What style of homes are in the area, predominantly? If you want to live in the downtown, within almost walking distance to the shops and restaurants, a lot of the homes are in the historic district. In this district, you cannot tear down a home. If you do buy one and renovate, you have to meet the city’s requirements on how to keep it historic, so it takes on a very Victorian style. So, a lot of the homes are Victorian, craftsmen. If you venture out further from downtown, you’ll find more of that traditional-style home. There are also quite a few newer developments, like gated communities, with beautiful homes. What is there to do in and around the town? One of the things that makes Northville so wonderful is its green space. There are a ton of parks and trails, woods, ponds, lakes, rivers—a lot of areas for exploring and exercising, taking walks, running, and hitting the Jennifer McBride Maybury State Park is right in Northville, with running, walking and bike trails, and plenty of activities. 16
  17. 17. bike paths. That’s the one thing that makes this area very unique, and why it’s so desirable (besides the homes and the downtown). It’s so handy having all of that available to you without having to belong to a gym or drive far to go work out—it’s right at your back door. One of the super-unique things that I personally absolutely love is Maybury State Park—a state park right within Northville. It’s maybe about 1,000 acres, with bike trails, walking trails and running trails, and there are plenty of winter activities that you can do there, like cross- country skiing or horseback riding. Maybury State Park might be the best feature in this area. I love to just go walking, and I have a dog, so I take her there running a lot. There’s another area called Hines Park that has quite a few biking trails, as well. They shut down the road for 10 miles every Saturday morning for people to go biking and running. There’s definitely a lot of green space, parks and trails that you don’t find in many areas around here. Is there much tourism in the region? You get people who come for the restaurants—places that aren’t chains. There’s a historic theater downtown, which people like to check out. And we have one of the biggest Halloween events where the whole city shuts down. The roads are closed and the town is opened up to thousands of families that come. The shops pass out candy, and the residents decorate their homes and make it a big deal. There’s also a huge Arts and Acts Festival that’s been going on for years. There are so many different events throughout the year that bring people in. We certainly have great, cute shops and things, but it’s the events that really bring the people in. How far is your town from the nearest major city? Northville is about 30 miles from Detroit, and many people live in Northville and commute to Detroit for work. Most people commute about 30 minutes on average, while others commute over an hour one way because they want to live here, but maybe they work on the other side of town. To them, it’s worth it. What are some of your favorite businesses or attractions in the region? Well, Maybury State Park is definitely one of my favorites, but there are tons of other great places. There are super-cute boutiques downtown where you can get some one-of-a-kind stuff—it’s not mall-type stores. There’s one in particular that I like, called Rococo‚ which sells small batches of beautiful designer things. There’s also a great coffee place called Red Dot Coffee. It’s a cute coffee shop, and they have some amazing things in there. You can bring your laptop, and it’s great for meetings if you have to meet someone for an hour. There’s a cute little lounge area, a fireplace and an outdoor patio for if you want to sit outside in the warmer months. There’s a lovely restaurant called Table 5—it’s probably the best in downtown. It’s always packed—always. It’s a white-tablecloth type place, but not stuffy or foodie. They have really cool drinks, and the bartenders have been there forever, so they know a lot of the locals that come in all the time. It’s one of those places where you go, and you always see people you know. The food is outstanding, the service is great, and it just has a warm feeling.  Northville’s vibrant downtown boasts great boutiques and restaurants. Image © Michigan Municipal League. 17
  18. 18. ver the past half-century, kitchens have become somewhat fetishized; a place to display high-tech appliances and high- design cookware, a social hub for friends and family, and a continuation of home style that showcases elegance and considered design choices. Pare it back to basics, though, and today’s kitchen is still essentially what it always has been: a place to prepare food. And homeowners, spurred recently by stay-at-home orders, but also inspired by home-cooking television shows, health concerns and the rising expense of dining out, are increasingly relying on their kitchens in times when eating out is not an option, as well as using their kitchens as additional entertainment space; somewhere to try their hand at cooking for their friends and family. For house hunters who relish the opportunity to regularly entertain and prepare food for guests, it pays to know what to look for when assessing kitchen space during your house search—and the best person to ask is an expert. Edouard Massih is a private chef and caterer in New York City. He hosts intimate dinners in his own home, giving local diners the experience of enjoying his food in a less formal, more personal way. Massih, who was born in Lebanon, found his love for cooking in his grandmother’s kitchen. Sharing food and creating community has always been the driving force behind Massih’s cooking, and he has discovered a way to do that in his own backyard—literally. “I wanted to invite people into my backyard, because I had a very unique space in Brooklyn, and not a lot of people [in New York] get to have dinners in a backyard,” Massih says. To bring to life his vision of cooking for the community, Massih extensively renovated his Greenpoint backyard, creating a lush urban escape where guests can enjoy the exquisite food that he prepares in his own kitchen— each dish enhanced by a dash of his grandfather’s olive oil, all the way from Lebanon. As more Americans turn to home cooking and entertaining, the functionality of a kitchen is more important than ever when choosing a home. COMPLIMENTS A great kitchen for entertaining has ample counter space, two sinks and plenty of room in the fridge. 18
  19. 19. TO THE CHEF 19
  20. 20. The third must-have for Massih is “a lot of prep area—lots of counter space.” You need space for laying out, preparing and organizing ingredients, which most people consider when thinking about counter space; but if you’re planning on entertaining groups of diners, you also need enough counter space to plate all of the meals at once. Nobody wants to be balancing plates on top of kitchen stools because there’s not enough room for everything on the countertop. Fourth for Massih is storage, in terms of both kitchen cabinets and a decent pantry. You want plenty of space, and also space that complements your cooking flow. Pots and pans should be as close to your stove as possible—either on a rack above or in a cabinet below—and serving utensils like spoons and tongs should be close to where you do your plating, to minimize the number of steps you have to take to collect your cooking tools, which helps with efficiency when you’re cooking for a group of people. A walk-in pantry is ideal, with various shelf sizes and storage options for appliances that are not in regular use. For chefs, there’s nothing worse than a cluttered cooktop. Having worked on his kitchen to ensure that it had everything that he needed to support his at-home dining experiences, Massih has the knowledge of both a professional chef and a home cook. We asked him for some tips to help aspiring culinary hosts to choose the right kitchen space, starting with the five kitchen elements that he finds to be indispensable. First, Massih says, is “the right fridge, or the right fridge space.” Part of taking the pressure off yourself when entertaining, he says, is making sure that you’re prepared in advance. “Entertaining is all about making it simple for yourself when people are there— being able to prep ahead and batching the drinks; having the pitchers of water ready in the fridge; and having everything ready to go. Maybe serve more cold stuff than hot. You can do a pasta salad and an orzo salad, and make it two hours in advance.” Preparing food in advance, chilling drinks and ensuring that all of your produce is fresh all comes down to having the right fridge. And while interactive fridges with weather forecasts and recipe databases can be useful, the main thing is space—and plenty of it. If you want to get fancy, you could go for a hot-water dispenser and temperature-adjustable drawers, both of which assist in various cooking processes; just make sure that you have enough shelf space to hold all of the food and beverages that you’ve prepped for your guests. Because you can’t make a lot of food without creating a lot of mess, Massih insists that having two sinks is vital: one dedicated to food prep, and one to cleanup. You can keep your prep equipment near your prep sink (think bowls, colanders, appliances), and dishes near the cleanup sink (which should ideally be close to the dishwasher). In addition, having two sinks creates more flexibility for multiple cooks, and streamlines the flow while you’re cooking. If you're cooking for a group, an abundance of counter space will make it easier for you to prep and plate meals. 20
  21. 21. Lastly, Massih emphasizes the importance of, as he calls it, “legit trash.” “You want a trash can that’s near the sink or accessible around [where you’re working], and not one of those little tiny trash barrels that fits nothing,” he says. “Otherwise, every two minutes, you’ll have to take the trash out when you’re prepping.” Massih also spends a lot of time cooking in other people’s kitchens as part of his catering and private-chef business, and the one feature that he is always delighted to see is a back kitchen. “What is really nice about some of [the private homes that I cook in] is they have a back kitchen, like the ‘help’ kitchen,” he says. “That really does help a lot. If I [had the resources], and I was looking for a house to entertain in a lot or to do a lot of dinners in, then that’s definitely something that I would look for. “A lot of these kitchens nowadays are very open-plan, because the idea of it is that it’s really fun. But it gets annoying when you’re [hosting] a formal dinner, and you can’t do dishes [or hide them away] while your guests are eating. Having a small back kitchen really helps, because then you can hide all of the stuff that you don’t want people to see.” There’s nothing wrong with a kitchen as a style statement, and most people whose interests lie in kitchens will admit to some fetish-like reverence. Just keep practical concerns in mind, particularly when you have culinary aspirations; remember, you can have a waterfall countertop AND legit trash. That’s what we call the best of both worlds.  For more information on Edouard Massih and his home-style cooking, visit www.edouardmassih.com.

  22. 22. ROOF TALKThe unsung hero of a house, the roof is an essential construction and design element. 22
  23. 23. hough it sometimes doesn’t seem to be given as much consideration as other design elements, a house’s roof is a vital feature, both aesthetically and functionally. A roof is almost like a hat: some provide more shade than others; some are better for warm weather, and some are better for cold. Some are complex and trendy, while others are simple and straightforward. The difference is that you don’t need a hat to complete an ensemble, but you do need a roof to complete a house. Compared with things like square footage, kitchen countertops and outdoor space, roofs sometimes sit low on the list of factors affecting home-buying decisions—but perhaps we should pay them more attention. There are countless designs, each with its own set of pros and cons. Different roofs are better suited for different environments, and each option offers various features that might affect how you enjoy your home. Here, you’ll find an overview of the roof variations that you’re likely to come across in your house search. Gable This classic structure, which is commonly found atop homes throughout the United States, consists of two roof sections that slope in opposite directions from a ridge. It’s a simple design, and one that has stood the test of time; gable roofs date all the way back to ancient Greece. Part of the reason that architects have long favored the gable roof is its functionality—the sloped design works as a drainage system that easily allows water or snow to run into the gutters, and the simplicity of the design means less potential for leaks and damage. Homeowners often favor a gable roof because of the amount of space it allows beneath—and because of its classic appearance. In many environments, a gable roof is practical and sturdy, but in windy areas or those prone to hurricanes, they’re not always the best option. Under extreme conditions, the upper part of the roof can trap in wind that might build up and peel off roofing material—or even lift the roof from the frame of the house itself. With built-up snow and strong winds, gable roofs have been known to collapse. If gables are what you’re looking for, just ensure that you’ve inspected the quality of construction before you buy. Hip The earliest examples of the hip roof design date back to the 18th century, when the clean, handsome style was used atop buildings in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Compared with the gable, the hip roof is slightly more complex; instead of two slopes, the hip roof has four, which meet at points, or “hips.” This makes for a more wind-resistant design that is still capable of allowing water drainage, with the added advantage of a consistent, level fascia that enables full gutter installation around the house. A downside is that more seams and valleys mean more opportunities for potential water leaks to occur, but as long as the roof has been properly installed, this shouldn’t cause much concern. Aesthetically, the hip roof is favored by those looking for a bungalow or cottage look, and the design is said to potentially increase property value. IllustrationsbyKaneGrose 23
  24. 24. Dutch gable This roofing style is the result of the gable and the hip joining forces. The Dutch gable (also known as the gablet) comprises a shallow hip roof topped with a smaller gable roof, which allows for a greater amount of space (provided by the gable) and a sturdier structure with a gutter running the full way around (courtesy of the hip roof). The Dutch gable was first popularized during the Renaissance, and it made its way into Europe in the following centuries. A Dutch gable adds a little more architectural interest than a simple gable or hip roof, and with the addition of a window in the gablet, natural light is maximized. And while the paired constructions mean more materials and a complex design that takes more effort to build and maintain, the end result is striking and multifunctional. Mansard Named after the French architect François Mansart, who was designing buildings during the baroque period of the 17th century, the mansard roof emerged crowning the tops of châteaus and grand townhouses throughout France. If you’re looking for some je ne sais quoi, the mansard roof delivers. The style is characterized by four roof sides that each contain two slopes, and decorative dormer windows. Devotees of this style love the extra space beneath the roof, which is substantial given the almost-flat upper slope and virtually vertical lower slope. The additional light from the dormers, better heat distribution and high-class look are other drawcards. The design is not ideal for extreme weather regions; due to the flatter upper slope, the drainage system of the roof is not as efficient as compared to other, simpler options. Maintenance and repair costs can also be high due to the flat surface and the introduction of dormer windows. 24
  25. 25. Butterfly As architectural styles evolved, roof design began to appear on some homes as their defining feature. The butterfly roof, although first used in 1930 by Le Corbusier in Chile, was popularized through mid-century modern design in Southern California in the late 1950s, and has been heavily associated with that movement in the years since—though it is still not particularly common. Also referred to as an inverted gable, the butterfly roof is named for its two surfaces that slope down from opposing edges to form a valley in the middle. The roof is appealing to home buyers for a few reasons, including its water-collecting design, and the taller external walls that support the higher edges of the roof, which allow for the installation of larger windows. Butterfly roofs are notoriously difficult to build and maintain, and they can be pricey to install. They also don’t fare well with snow, which is why you’ll largely find this style in warmer environments like Palm Springs. But the aesthetic interest that comes from this silhouette is arresting, and perfectly suited to those who favor the mid-century look. Flat A persistent trend in modern design is simplicity and minimalism, and you can’t get much more minimal than a flat roof. And although they are now a marker of modernism, flat roofs have long been used in Middle Eastern building due to their simplicity, cost-efficiency and ability to keep out the sun’s heat. When roofing materials became more advanced, the style spread across Europe and into the United States. Despite appearances, these roofs are not completely flat; they are designed with a slight pitch to allow water drainage, but they’re also flat enough to be used for a terrace or rooftop garden. A clean, crisp silhouette is achieved with a flat roof, allowing other features of the building design to shine. The biggest drawback to a flat roof is the minimal slope as water buildup can cause damage, but advanced, modern roofing materials have largely solved that problem. These include single-layer membranes made of neoprene or polyvinyl chloride (PVC); modified bitumen, which gives durability and a rubber-like characteristic; and built-up roofing (BUR), which consists of several layers of materials designed to mitigate water infiltration. The roofs that crown our homes have changed and adapted a lot over the years. Yet, whether your preference for roofing is a new architectural style or an innovative way of building, a roof will always have one central mission: to cover our heads.  25

  27. 27. o arrive in Venice for the first time is to be transported into a completely unique world—a city of gothic buildings floating on water, where grand palaces and churches stand above the ubiquitous canals, and an array of building materials is on permanent display. From the dusty-rose clay bricks that can be found on the exteriors of houses, palaces and churches, to the dazzling white Istrian stone that typifies many of the grander Venetian establishments, and the marble mosaics that adorn surfaces throughout the city, Venice is a city of contrasting textures and styles—and this is something that is reflected in one of its most famous exports: terrazzo flooring. You might know it as that speckly concrete from government buildings of the 1970s and ’80s, but this hybrid flooring material was actually created in the 15th century. Venetian mosaic workers would gather up offcuts of marble and repurpose them, combining them with clay and other materials to use for flooring in their own residences. The workers would grind the stone down for an even walking surface, but without being coated, the color of the aggregate flecks would not emerge; terrazzo was merely a convenient and utilitarian choice for flooring. The flooring style gained popularity when workers refined the process of installation by creating a grinding stone called a galeto to even out the surface, and discovering that a coating of goat milk would bring out the color and sheen of the stone. Since then, technology has advanced (and coatings other than goat milk have been developed), and terrazzo has established itself as a durable and attractive flooring material, first in Italy, and then across the globe. In palaces and buildings throughout Venice, terrazzo is omnipresent, having been chosen for its aesthetic appeal and durability. In the centuries since its invention, the surface has made its way around the world, and recently, it has enjoyed a resurgence as a style statement in modern architecture and design. David Filippi, Vice President of American Terrazzo Co., has a long family history with terrazzo, beginning with his great-grandfather Antonio’s emigration from Italy to the United States. Antonio Filippi set out for the United States from a small town called Casasola, not far from Venice, in the early 1900s. After an arduous journey and years of hardship as a foreigner in a strange land, Antonio established what is now American Terrazzo Co. V E N E T I A N T E R R A Z Z O Terrazzo flooring has stood the test of time, enduring for centuries as a durable and versatile surface. Modern terrazzo is used as a style statement. 27
  28. 28. “Like so many Italian immigrants, my great- grandfather left behind a wife and young child to board a ship and set sail for the country of his dreams,” Filippi says. “Some seven years after arriving in America, he called for his young family to join him and eventually secured a piece of property where he built his shop and home next door. Relatives and friends from the ‘old country’ joined my great-grandfather, and together they earned a reputation for performing the finest in terrazzo and masonry work.” Filippi’s family is dedicated to the continuation of the business, which is a testament to Italian ingenuity and Filippi’s great-grandfather’s hard work. “Over the years, terrazzo has had its ups and downs,” Filippi says. “Today, it is very popular. Historically, you would have seen terrazzo mostly in airports and hospitals, and in the lobbies of large commercial buildings. Now, it has expanded to retail stores, universities and high-end homes.” As with many design and architectural trends, terrazzo has come in and out of style, but one of the enduring benefits of the material—and what makes architects and designers come back to it again and again—is that it is durable and versatile. “Generally, of all building types, airports have the most foot traffic,” Filippi says. “One of the main reasons that terrazzo is so widely used in airports is that it is extremely durable.” It’s because of this that, even though the initial financial outlay for terrazzo might be greater than a simpler form of flooring, terrazzo is considered to be the most cost-effective flooring that there is—because it will never wear out. Fifty years from installation, a terrazzo floor will look as fresh as if it were installed yesterday. Another major benefit of terrazzo flooring is its uniqueness, and the ability to customize its look to suit any setting. “It has many options,” Filippi says. “There is a wide spectrum of available colors, as well as many aggregate sizes and colors.” In recent years, terrazzo has been embraced as a wildly versatile material that can be used as a refined surface in professional buildings; for a fun and colorful addition to a retail space; and as a personality-laden feature in a beautiful home. Because terrazzo is poured during installation, a fluid, unbroken surface can be achieved, providing continuity and connection between spaces in your home, which most other flooring and wall surfaces are unable to achieve. And designers are now experimenting with precast terrazzo, opening up a whole new channel for design experimentation—it’s no longer limited to just flooring and walls. Terrazzo flooring at San Giorgio Maggiore, in the lagoon of Venice—the city where this unique flooring style was born. 28
  29. 29. No longer relegated just to underfoot, terrazzo is now used for walls, countertops and furniture, and in many other applications “Over the years, we have fabricated terrazzo sinks, bathtubs, tables, chairs and even sculptures,” Filippi says. “Terrazzo can be placed anywhere and everywhere. It has no limitations.” This expansion from building surfaces to accessories and decor is indicative of the strength of terrazzo in today’s design palette. Modern design outlets jumped on board, with Anthropologie selling a range of terrazzo-inspired bath accessories, West Elm doing a collection of melamine terrazzo-style dishes, and multitudes of furniture and fabric designers incorporating the material’s aesthetic into their products. If you’re considering terrazzo for your home, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Consider your time line, because terrazzo is still laid by hand, and is considered artistic and artisanal work. If you’re going with traditional cementitious terrazzo, be prepared for it to take more than a month to install. Epoxy, on the other hand, can usually be completed within one to two weeks. Cost varies, starting from $30 per square foot for installation. If you’re looking for intricate designs or installations in challenging areas, the cost will increase. But remember, the long-term maintenance costs of terrazzo are virtually nonexistent compared with other types of flooring. Lastly, when you’re choosing the color and aggregates for your terrazzo features, make sure that you’re making a choice based on personal preference rather than trend, because this surface, with its virtual indestructibility, will be with you permanently.  29
