What inspired the design of Flannery Exchange?
“The Mad Men show set! I am a midcentury fan, especially the furnishings. [They’re] simple yet crafted. The architecture was easy. I enhanced it through subtraction. I highlighted the amazing things about the building by removing the unattractive and obsolete [elements] of the property.”
