Soho Loft : Manhattan, New York : 1989

This 2,100 sq.ft. loft renovation uses figurative references to generate planning and design details.

Conceptual analogies to the nature of the clients respective professions as surgeons were adopted in creating a 'cutting and peeling away' approach to the interior architecture.

Beginning at the loft entry point the service parts of the plan, contained in an arced volume, are increasing opened to the loft space. This strategy culminates in the kitchen where 'the skin' is completely removed revealing the skeletal nature of the structure and equipment. A visual axis establishes views to an elevated and pivoted glazed door /wall leading to the master bedroom suite.

The project was published extensively and featured in the March 1989 issue of Interior Design Magazine.
