From the architect. Located in Tribeca, is a recently completed 550sqm loft conversion - a bespoke and innovative response to the challenges of residing in Manhattan.

The existing 3.6m high space is defined by the exposed reinforced concrete frame and the large multi-paned windows offering panoramic views of the skyline on three sides.

The strategy was to provide the required division of space with minimum interference with the existing structure and maximum perception of the overall volume.

The insertion of steel framed, glazed volumes with raised timber floors provides elevated sleeping platforms within the loft space. The glazed volumes are accompanied by blank, white, volumes containing bathing, service and scullery functions. These service components are arranged in a linear sequence in the centre of the space.

Both of these insertions are carefully placed amongst the existing structural elements of columns, beams and corbels, freeing the structure and the perimeter of the loft from division.

Further layering and configuration of the space is offered by layers of operable fabric screens and sliding panels. The various areas of the residence may be separated from one another or connected to each other as desired.

Collaborating with artisans of both New Zealand and New York has enabled the creation of custom fittings such as blown glass pendant lights, treated steel and freestanding stone washbasins and bath, resulting in a highly crafted and bespoke construction.

Attraction + Repulsion. Beautiful public space(s). Secondary bedroom cells with no external windows given no more importance than storage.

I understand the intentions, but I can't cope with those small (children's?) bedrooms in such a huge space with no direct ventilation and illuminated througt a hallway.

always good fun to see fresh eyes from afar take on a quintessential new york space. the plan makes sense, love the doors and floor and color palette but there are some serious miscues here.

interior maybe not everybodys choice.
but i think this actually has a lot of charisma .. the old wooden floor, the rough ceilings.. to me, it is a nice contrast to all those highgloss anno 2010 projects shown here.
i would feel very well living there !!!

Very 1990's, but it's a bit too sterile and soul-less for me.

This contemporary principe of devisions is the only one way for this space, but finally, it looks like 70-th house... Do not know yet is it good or not...
