NYC Compost

One of the things I miss the most about New York, strangely, is their city-supported composting. They made it almost effortless; just put all your organic waste into a provided bin next to your trash and recycling. We kept our small bin in the freezer and dumped the “food-cicle” out when we took out the trash. The outside bin had a sealing lid to keep the lovely smells contained.

This process, paired with a great recycling program, drastically reduced the amount of regular trash we put out…unfortunately it’s not this easy in most cities.

How New York City Composts

Creating timeless spaces for amazing people through a site-specific and deeply personal approach. Sloan Springer Architect is a design-focused practice specializing in creating homes for awesome people who want more than just a house. My clients see their home as a reflection of themselves, a place that both stimulates the senses and soothes the soul. I believe that great design comes from a collaborative and tailored experience, playing off the uniqueness of each client and the constraints of each project. From bookcases and houses in Austin to tech offices and high-rise condos in New York City, to opera facilities in Santa Fe, I've worked cross-country on a variety of projects. Design knows no scale, and with every project comes unique opportunities to do something special.​ While my studio is located in Collingswood, NJ, I am currently accepting commissions throughout the Philadelphia, New York City, and Austin, TX metro areas.
