Saipua is a charming shop in Brooklyn that sells handmade soaps and flowers. Architect Jeremy Barbour of Tacklebox demonstrates a fantastic use of reclaimed barn wood, creating a beautiful space that’s part store front and part workshop.

The shop area is literally a wooden box with the shop front facing the street like a stage, slightly elevated with a proscenium framing the interior.
