An architectural tour in Cold Spring

As fans of architecture already know, Philip Nobel wrote in The New York Times this past weekend about the season ahead, pointing readers to scheduled and unscheduled projects from Vegas to Tel Aviv to Dresden. About a year and a half ago, when I went to visit the architect and critic at his home on Main Street in Cold Spring, where he lives with his girlfriend, Nathalie Jonas, he gave me just as thorough a tour, with gestures toward the sofa, the laundry room, a parking lot, and some glowy lighting fixture under a bird cage in the corner.

It's funny to look back on these photos, which pretty much sum up "before:" before the party they hosted that night, when all the furniture had been moved out of the way; before they'd finishing the dining room; before they'd opened up The Living Room, a health and wellness center in the retail space below. Until I can update with some afters, follow Philip to a time and place long ago, and I'll publish more from their charming apartment this week:
