Eco Laundry - Chelsea
Collaboration with Torsten Schaursbach
The second branch of a budding global franchise, The Eco Laundry Company’s NYC location is situated in the heart of Chelsea on Manhattan’s West Side. Dedicated to reducing their clients’ carbon footprints, the boutique laundry storefront was designed with the same environmentally conscious standards employed by the company’s owners.
In addition to using appliances that require considerably less water and electricity per load as well as biodegradable soaps and detergents, the 2500 square foot space is fully equipped with recycled steel surfaces, energy efficient fluorescent lighting, and organic linoleum flooring throughout.
Dealing extensively with mechanical services, utility connections, and fabricating custom fixtures and furnishings, the BSDB design team worked directly with the NYC Environmental Control Board and Con-Ed to help the Eco Laundry Company’s owners realize their environmentally conscious boutique storefront.
