Colonie Restaurant in Brooklyn, NYC

Colonie-Brookyln-Heights-NY-1

Colonie restaurant, recently opened in Brooklyn Heights, is a fantastic example of a rehabilitated space that joins creativity and vision to materials that once had a life as something else entirely, and work it into something brand new and beautiful to look at.

Drawing inspiration from the history and beauty of the surrounding historic neighborhoods, Colonie strives to support the New York food community by using as many local purveyors as possible, while providing the locals and neighbors with a comfortable, inviting spot to drink and dine. Sustainability has become ”the” buzzword in the design world over the past few years.

With an accessible and welcoming environment amid exposed brick, reclaimed wood, steel casement windows, and industrial lighting, a burst of green serves as the dynamic centerpiece of Colonie. A repurposed steel beam that the owners found on the roof of the building now serves as a chandelier above the dining área.

The ”living wall” (as the owners refer to it) is a vertical garden, lush and wild, complete with edible herbs.  It truly brings an extra ”something” to the space and this green burst of life has the passersby retracing their steps to have another peek inside.

The overall design of COLONIE is meant to evoke the experience of one large shared family meal, an urban barn-house if you will.
