Project Description

Tribeca Loft

Location: Tribeca, NY
Project Size: 4,000 sq. ft.
Completed: 2005

A 19th century pipe-manufacturing and storage facility form the backdrop for this 4,000 square-foot loft in Tribeca.

The existing 40 x 100-foot masonry envelope is punctuated by seven oversized cast-iron columns supporting low-slung heavy timber above. A glowing pavilion set within the existing rough-walled space, draws natural light and reflective views into the very deep single-story industrial envelope, separating public and private living areas while discretely housing bathing, laundry, kitchenette, and gym.

Living spaces outside the pavilion are set away from the building edge and framed by metalwork and millwork that morph into seating and storage along the perimeter, holding both the building and the city at bay. All living areas are arranged and illuminated with the idea that each might perform like individual set pieces, forming the backdrop for work, play, and repose.
