Space-starved New Yorkers—especially architects and designers—love to see how Gotham residents with a space surplus (which usually equates money) live in their brownstones, townhouses, and elegant apartments. This weekend, October 6 and 7, Open House New York will celebrate its 10th OHNY weekend and open some of the most interesting private residences in the city for limited public tours.

For example, OHNY will open up beautiful Midtown residences by Jayne Michaels and Ali Tayer and an elegant Brooklyn Heights home by Lea Ciavarra. Even two hip homes in Williamsburg by Aizaki Allie and Christopher Coleman will be on display. These tours are always very popular, but it’s necessary to reserve your spot before you arrive on their stoops and lobbies.

The Brooklyn Navy Yard is home to New York’s most spectacular collection of industrial buildings, warehouses, and 19th century dry docks. The Yard is normally closed to the public, but this Saturday Open House New York will open the gated industrial park to the public and many of its artisans, designers, and fabricators will be on hand to conduct tours of their studio spaces. The Navy Yard has just opened Building 92 with a spectacular museum of the facility’s history and an adjacent exhibition space featuring an exhibit of the collected steel dies (called hubs) of Mathew Lewandowski who was tool and die maker based in the Yard. The hubs on display represent 30 years of Lewandowski’s production and are beautiful objects in their own right as well as being tools for mass production. This Saturday is supposed to be beautiful weather so join Open House for a day in the Yard and its after party with the artists and artisans on the tour.

In a city known for specialized districts—diamonds, finance and garments to name only three—the Brooklyn Navy Yard is perhaps the most unique. The “Yard” is home to nearly 170 design related businesses like industrial designers, fabricators, artists, and architects and as a former ship building facility it is gated and closed to the public. But on May 12 Open House New York will open the former navy facility to the public from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. and may of these creative studios and work spaces will open their studios for self guided tours. It will be an amazing day and AN will publish a full list of participating studios later in the week, but contact Open House to purchase a ticket for the tour which includes a drinks party at the Yard’s new Building 92.

OHNY: Open Studios Husdon Square, Saturday, March 31

There are perhaps three–maybe four–design hubs in New York City. These hubs are places with high concentrations of architects and allied designers who are attracted by relatively large, light-filled spaces and the camaraderie of like-minded designers next door. These hubs are know mostly in the “cool” borough of Brooklyn (The Brooklyn Navy Yard, Dumbo and Red Hook), but the originally and still most “designer” dense is near Hudson Square, on Varick Street between Houston to Canal. Last month The Architect’s Newspaper collaborated with Open House New York (ohny.org) and had a hugely successful Saturday afternoon in Dumbo where over 35 architects opened there offices to the public.

Now we are doing second Open Studio on Varick Street, and the public will have the opportunity to visit some of the most high profile and active architects offices in the city. The event will take place on Saturday, March 31, 2012 from 1:00p.m. to 5:00p.m., and you can make a reservation to attend the day at OHNY’s website. The day will conclude with a drinks event at a local spot for all those participating in Open Studios.

Come by and say hello.

The yearly event happens this weekend—October 15th and 16th—and to celebrate its 10th year, OHNY is hosting a launch party at the beautiful new offices of HOK across from Bryant Park.
