It’s not every day that recent design-school graduates get to see their work showcased in finished residences, but Pratt students will get that chance soon, thanks to a collaboration between the university and the New York-based developer Hudson Companies. More than 90 students, faculty, and alumni from the institute will display their furniture, textiles, lighting, and an assortment of other home furnishings in two model apartments designed by Rogers Marvel Architects at Third + Bond–a 44 unit, townhouse-style development in Carroll Gardens that mixes luxury condominium housing with environmental design (the entire project’s on track to receive LEED Gold and Energy Star certifications). Inside the apartments, prospective buyers will find everything from teapots to first aid kits, all Pratt-made, in an arrangement curated by Anthony Caradonna, an alum and professor at the School of Architecture. It’s student meets teacher, academic meets commercial, on display at 115 Third Street beginning next week.
Check out more photos of the Third + Bond interiors after the jump.
