Originally built in 1883, The Cedars sits between the bay and the sound, at the entrance to the quiet town of Orient, New York. A few years ago a young couple began to envision the house as a place that would not only pay homage to the history of the place
Michael Yarinsky Studio
Michael Yarinsky Studio is an interdisciplinary design office specializing in architecture, interiors, and furniture. The work is marked by one main theme - the idea that modernism should have materiality. Modernism only begins to approach the sublime when it is not sterile – when it is lived in and has texture. Much of the work attempts to bring the “texture” to clean modernism through the use of new and unexpected materials, technology, form, and color. Texture is also created by challenging the program of the space/design to create unexpected moments of interaction. A design should be aesthetically appealing, yes, but should make you feel something.
Michael Yarinsky received his degrees in Architecture from Pratt Institute and has been practicing ever since. Previously, as Project Manager at Specht Architects in New York, Michael's main focus was residential architecture and interiors. Prior to Specht, Michael worked several years for Janson Goldstein designing for high-end retail, commercial, and residential clients globally. Michael's work has been has been published by Interior Design, Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, T Magazine, Architect Magazine, Architect's Newspaper, Creator's Project, NY Mag, Sight Unseen, Design Milk, eVolo, and Paper Magazine. Aside from practice, Michael runs Design Field Trip with Jean Lee and Dylan Davis of Ladies and Gentlemen Studio, and is the lead curator for Cooler Gallery outside the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
