an eclectic loft transforms into a sophisticated bachelor PAD


As part of his relocation from London, an investment professional purchased this 2000sf eclectic artist's loft in TriBeCa, with windows in almost every direction, the building's primary facade slices through the Manhattan grid, affording stunning 180° views.

To redefine spatial proportions and capitalize on the diagonal window expanse as part of the overall composition, all existing walls were removed and the partitioned rooms were rebuilt in a neat rectangle along the far side of the plan.  In this block of private space, the floor was raised and the ceiling was lowered to accommodate new infrastructure, while adding a sense of intimacy.

We tailored every detail to accent the proportion and grandeur of the remaining triangular Iiving / dining area.  We restored the original window trims, developed custom over-sized moldings, painted the raw terracotta ceiling a textural white and added ambient lighting to graze the 13-foot ceiling at night.

The result is a truly special Manhattan space that celebrates the unique views spanning from the Chrysler to Woolworth buildings, linked by the ornate cornices of TriBeCa.
