Homes: Tim Seggerman

March 26, 2012


I was chatting one day with my friend Ed about woodworking and he told me about his uncle, Tim Seggerman; a Brooklyn-based master carpenter, architect and overall aesthete. He holds fast to his mantra of slow building and that a house is never truly finished. Many of the elements in his home, like electrical wiring and pipes, remain visible years after his initial gutting and remodeling of his Crown Heights home. The flow of the space is also an essential cornerstone for Seggerman’s designs. A linear path is clear on both floors of the house with all of the furniture and built-ins being made-by-hand and embedded as permanent fixtures, save a couple tables and beds. Seggerman is currently working on several greater NY-area projects in addition to his own on-going, slow-built home.

    is it weird to have a crush on a room? because i’m completely crushing on that couch and the bookshelves. you know that must be the best place to spend an afternoon.

    what an amazing space…! i can almost feel myself running my hands over the titles, deciding which to pull down from the shelves.
