Comments Off on 19th-century church converted into gorgeous modern lofts in Brooklyn

This 19th-century church in Brooklyn was converted into a modern residential building that lets the original details of the historic structure shine through. The Bushwick church was gutted and turned into a series of daylit lofts available for rent through Nooklyn . Living units are spread over three stories, and they feature beautiful oak floors, antique arched windows, and gold mosaic ceilings. The Victorian Gothic church from the 1890s is located at 618 Bushwick Avenue, Brooklyn. Known as The Saint Marks, the conversion project offers 99 apartments with up to two bedrooms. The units come in different loft -inspired layouts, with large windows and high ceilings , hardwood floors and recessed lighting.

Some of the units, like the one shown in the images, have private decks as well. + Nooklyn Via Uncrate

Comments Off on Norway builds unique Bicycle Hotel to encourage more commuters to travel on two wheels

Norway’s “best cycling city” has added a new feature to make two-wheeled transport even easier for local residents and visitors. The new Bicycle Hotel (or the native “sykkel hotell”) adjacent to the main square of the train station in Lillestrøm (near Oslo) will give bikes a cozy space to bunk up while riders are off in the city. The project, commissioned by Norwegian National Railways as a public space, offers just over 5,000 square feet of bike storage space that is protected from the elements. The aim is to make cycling even easier for people commuting around the city, and bicycle hotels such as this one are popping up near railway stations throughout the bike-friendly nation.

Comments Off on KP Cykler’s beautiful hanger is bicycle storage that is meant to be seen

Danish cycling brand KP Cykler is raising funds on Kickstarter for a beautiful bicycle hanger made out of wood, steel and recycled cork. Bike storage can be a tricky problem: most storage solutions are not aesthetically appealing and beg to be tucked away in some dark garage corner.  But KP Cykler team believes a special bicycle deserve a special place in our homes, which is the ultimate purpose of The Bike Hanger, because it is meant to be seen. Each hanger is handmade in Europe. The wooden back-plate and metal structure between the wall and bicycle stem is made by one of the founder’s family members. All assembly work is done by the two partners – Kaspar Peek and Gediminas Maslauskas. The handlebars and stem is supplied by a Taiwanese company, and recycled wine corks are used to add to the authentic look of the handmade Bike Hanger. The Bike Hanger is available now through Kickstarter for approximate 79€ or $87. Shipping is expected to start as early as October. + KP Cyckler Bike Hanger
