This Penthouse loft
is perched a dozen floors above a theater, conceptually ideal for the creative
and talented Clients. The challenge was updating a strict architectural
renovation, replacing the existing glass and steel staircase leading to the
rooftop garden and salvaging a long corridor of dated hidden-panel storage. The
Client desired a hard-working, modern kitchen which we composed of
American-made Walnut cabinetry, recycled paper counters and a nod to
hard-working NYC with a subway tile backsplash. The Clients’ tastes dictated eclectic
modern interiors leaning toward industrial found objects and earthy finishes,
we combined these style elements with the best existing features of the loft:
original maple floors, exposed brick and generous spaces. Key design elements
include locally sourced antique fixtures and hardware, hand painted tiles from
North Africa and linen window treatments in solid and boldly patterned panels.
Directing this project from concept to construction involved a substantial
amount of attention to the completion of the work.
