Manhattan Loft


The studio was tasked with transforming the top two floors of a former industrial building in Tribeca into an apartment for a family of five. The design sought to maintain the loftlike qualities of the expansive floor plate while introducing breaks in the sightlines that allow for increased privacy. On the top floor, a glass volume housing the kitchen is inserted into the space, becoming an object in the round. The material palette reflects the building’s industrial origins, with thin planks of oak forming a railroad floor pattern, textured glass panels, and bluestone slabs.
