This Manhattan apartment addresses the primary challenge of loft living—maintaining the all-important sense of airiness and light without having our clients feel as if they reside in a warehouse. While maintaining an open plan, we gave the individual areas of the home their own identity and sense of place, subtly demarcating transitions to create rooms without proper walls.
The interior architecture adds a level of refinement and harmony to the wide-open space. Strategic hits of color and pattern animate the spatial composition without disrupting the overall mood of calm.
Built-in elements like the kitchen’s mustard-yellow cabinetry and the dining room’s custom leather banquette help define the boundaries of particular areas while underscoring the intimate connection between the interior appointments and the building’s architecture.
The bedrooms are designed for easy repose and a feeling of cloistered comfort—genuine oases in the midst of a chaotic city.
