Tula House


We set out to build a community pillar, a space that housed the excitement, discovery and education that the visual brand set forth.

The space was a blank canvas. A 100 year old warehouse that required an entire renovation and build out.

︎ Concept and design rules for product merchandising.




The Site


An abandoned 100 year old machining factory in Greenpoint, BK





The Inspiration


Welcoming and warm home, bright walls and decorative tiles. “Mi Casa es su Casa” was the motto when researching the aesthetic principles.





The Visual Language


Combining classic horticultural materials with a Cuban courtyard aesthetic, we aimed to create a warm environment that felt lived-in and welcoming.




Tula House


Built and opened in November 2018.




 

The Arid Room


An ode to the North American desert, housing our rare and unique arid plants. Built and opened as an extension to the original Tula House in August 2019.
