New York architects Solveig Fernlund and Neil Logan founded Fernlund + Logan in 1992; their client list includes under-the-radar designers like Ted Muehling and textile company Maharam. One of their more recent projects is a loft on Hudson Street, featuring the firm’s trademark Scandinavian understatement–oiled oak floors, plenty of white space, and an eclectic mix of furnishings and art.
