This project was a complete renovation of a 1,200 square feet loft in the meatpacking district of New York City. The client intended to use the space primarily to entertain clients and secondly as a pied-à-terre.
The strategy was to create an open loft with minimal plan and visual disruptions, concealed storage and clean details that would reflect the nomadic lifestyle of the client. A series of custom pivoting maple wall inserts concealed the domestic functions of the loft such as a fold-down bed, clothing storage, seating, and kitchen equipment.
The flexibility of the maple cabinetry allows for the quick transformation of the space from an open entertainment loft into small domestic living zones.
