Hesperios Flagship No. 1, SoHo (02.18-08.20)
Design: Autumn Hrubý
Landscape Design: Miranda Brooks
Hesperios’s flagship was located in the SoHo district of New York City. On the ground floor of a restored 19th-century brick building at 23 Cleveland Place. Hesperios’ founder, Autumn Hrubý, designed and curated the shop, and landscape designer Miranda Brooks developed the spacious courtyard garden. Inside, one would find the Hesperios Collection, books, ceramics, and home goods with a kitchen and tea room at the center of the space. The menu was tightly focused, using local, organic ingredients; providing tea varieties by House of Waris Tea & Company; and a specialty drink menu hand-crafted by Selma Slabiak (previously of Michelin star restaurant, Aska). Hesperios was a city retreat.
