SABO project is a Brooklyn-based design office investigating the fields of architecture, furniture design, set design, installations and environmental strategies. Through an optimistic sabo(tage) of each project substance, our practice aims to identify unexpected means of contemporary relevance. The office focuses on the design of places where one can act differently and perhaps think differently.
Our approach seamlessly bridges the way things are designed and the way they are made, combining cues from industry and craft. To achieve that we reinterpret old archetypes into an honest design and construction language. We reuse traditional techniques and joinery to create strong moments and connections. The result is work with personality, function and purpose. In practice, our pieces provide many expressive “windows” through which the user enters.

BUTTRICK PROJECTS ARCHITECTURE+DESIGN creates thoughtful, elegant, buildings and interiors designed to the specific vision and program of each client, and to the context of each site.
We use the design process to solve spacial relationships and create compositions for modern lifestyles, ventures and workplaces. Careful listening and observing allow projects to unfold organically out of myriad influences. We always seek new and unexpected ways of seeing, and work collaboratively to remain open and aware of opportunities that will benefit each outcome.
Our studio works on an intentional spectrum of custom design projects including new houses, residential remodels, flagship commercial spaces, retail, restaurants, offices, and institutional facilities. A keen interest in new typologies and new urbanism in addition to sustainability guide us as we try to help enrich the built environment.
We design responsibly, creating integrated, energy-efficient, healthy, lasting structures. Inherent to our process are considerations such as passive solar principles, the reuse and salvaging of building materials, opportunities for natural drainage, connections and transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces, the conscientious use of natural resources, and the most forward-thinking, innovative seismic standards.
history s t y l e m e e t s p e o p l e
SMP/Space M Projects, Inc. was established in NEW YORK in 1986 withvision and passion for introducing stylish lifestyle products and personal gifts designed mostly by American designers, craftsmen and artists for the Japanese market.
Buying and distributing designed-in-USA products for the Japanese market in the past years, we have been known for our creative buying and merchandising in home decoration, table tops, bath & home fragrance, stationery and kids stuff. Focusing on the USA market, at the April show of EX・TRACTS 2001 in New York, we launched and introduced our original brand, " DEAR PEAR " collection for bath and home fragrance along with our selection of the imported items mainly from Japan. We were delighted to be selected as among the finalists to be nominated for "Best Overall Products Award" at our first debut EX.TRACTS show.
And then we had our first Accent on Design Show in the New York Gift Fair in January, 2002 and received fabulous responses from the buyers and press.
In the Spring, 2003, we moved from Tribeca to Flatiron district to open our new showroom/buying office at the New York Gift Building, 225 Fifth Avenue.
In the summer of 2005, we relocated our showroom / buying office to "7 WEST NEW YORK" - the new premium gift mart in New York, focusing on our own original BATH & HOMEFRAGRANCE collection, Japan Lifestyle Design products and International Designers Collection.

We design buildings, renovate space, build furniture and formulate brands for small businesses. Our approach on a project is to discover its 'essence' by telling a story. The story often begins with concepts that manifest and transform into built form. The concepts unfold through careful study of client needs, client rituals, site analysis, context, scale, orientation, views, light, ventilation and material. An important part of this research includes referencing historic examples of similar project types overlaid with today's sustainable mindset. Everything is considered part of the whole and collectively combines to reveal the spirit of each project.
From concept through construction, we take the time to ensure the client has a full understanding of the process from start to finish. We collaborate with building departments, sustainability consultants, engineers, contractors, artists and craftsmen whose individual skills are essential to create the final product. We understand the challenges of design and construction and seize the opportunity to work together as a team to deliver clean, timeless solutions. Since this behind-the-scenes collaboration is rarely seen, we use social media as a platform to highlight the stages of the process. We see this collaborative effort as another important component in revealing the project's story. This story gives meaning and value to the project, to our clients, to the design profession and to the greater community.
