Salvaged Wood and Sleek Design Set This Bridgeport Gallery Owner's Apartment Rehab Apart

Welcome to House Calls, a feature in which Curbed tours lovely, offbeat, or otherwise awesome homes. Think your space should be featured next? Drop us a line.

Publisher, artist and entrepreneur Edward Marszewski has been called the Mayor of Bridgeport for the sheer numbers of projects, businesses and events he organizes, owns or puts together in the South Side neighborhood. From the Co-Prosperity Sphere gallery, which plays host to art and design events such as the Version Festival and Typeforce, to Maria's Packaged Goods & Community Bar, where his mother Maria, the owner, will often check your ID at the door, it's clear he's put down roots in what he's called "the neighborhood of the future." So when Ed, his wife Rachael, and their four-year-old daughter Ruby Dean began to outgrow their apartment, it seemed like a forgone conclusion that they weren't moving very far. But after searching for a home to rehab and refurbish in Bridgeport without luck, the Marszewskis decided to stay put.

The tour begins on Curbed Chicago. >>
