Locals + Culture

At cityhomeCOLLECTIVE, we adore places and people that inspire, so obviously we’re smitten with Jack and Brooke Marple. Equally inspiring? Their perch in the Uffens building. This creative duo has honed their space with impeccable interior design and thoughtful upgrades. To personalize the home, Jack and Brook updated the kitchen cabinet color, swapped the original countertops for a butcher block, added contemporary light fixtures from West Elm and Muuto, opted for a double sink, added extra built-in storage, and sourced a perfectly sized sectional from Hem (that we can’t stop drooling over).

In such a beautiful space, it’s not surprising that Brooke was inspired to start Drupefruit. The business, which uses locally sourced ingredients to make fruity-vinegar drink mixers, aka “shrubs,” was started right here in this kitchen. (Wanna try for yourself? You can find bottles right across the street at the Pioneer Park Farmers Market every Saturday this summer, as well as a handful of local shops.)

We recently dropped by to pay a visit, drink a damn delicious shrub, and take in sunset views from that balcony. According to the two, the word that describes this space best is “treehouse,” and with a top-floor, north-facing balcony with views facing Pierpont Avenue, we have to agree. This heavenly spot is also just a dash to Caputo’s Market, Carlucci’s Bakery and Cafe, Bruges Waffles, and Laan Na Thai.

All in all, perfectly situated digs.
