Marcy & Myrtle

Once intended to be just the design firm's office, this Brooklyn space is now also a cafe.

Marcy & Myrtle

At the intersection of Marcy and Myrtle avenues in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn stands a new cottage-like coffee shop of the same name, Marcy & Myrtle, by interior architecture and design build firm Harbor Projects.

Harbor Projects took over the space - which was once a tire store - with the initial intent of using it as a Brooklyn office space but soon realized it called for something more. "The space was asking to be something else. There’s this huge space, like a storefront, right near the subway and its so transitory, so we thought, Why not a coffee?" says Robin Kops, a partner at Harbor Projects. In an effort to maintain the history of the space - and its charm - Harbor Projects decided to treat it as one of its usual projects by preserving and retrofitting its interiors with design elements that would maintain its original character.
