Loft Apartment Living Area


New York Loft : Manhattan, New York : 1986

This 2,000 sq. ft. loft conversion was designed to meet the clients programmatic requirements by utilizing forced perspectives to enhance the spatial length of the interior.

In establishing a clear pattern of 'served' vs 'service' spaces the introduction of an enclosed 'pavilion' defines and separates entertaining and dining. Margin areas in the plan generate kitchen, circulation and mechanical areas. The diminished perspectives of the floors and walls recede to vanishing points highlighted in the stained glass apertures.

Industrial materials including insulated fiberglass paneled walls complete the inversion of inside/outside in harmony with the public/private nature of the design.

The project was published in the September 1986 issue of Interior Design Magazine.
