Loft spaces: more than Bohemian delights

Family-size loft space in New York’s hip neighbourhood of Tribeca plays with unexpected spatial layouts

00-loft-new-york-tribeca-office-of-architecture

Loft Living” has been attracting an increasingly number of fervid fanatics over the last bunch of years. It is a go-to solution for self-aware artists and performer wannabes, and also a tempting slice of heaven for any respectful designer, curator or creative out there. Indeed, it is an actual dream for all designer lovers and casual, raw style-enthusiasts roaming the world. A synonym with being young and cool, loft space is an all-time fave of both tombeur de femmes or couples willing to give there domestic habitat a fresher twist.

 

But what if a family with children shares such a golden ambition, too? Shall they kiss bohemian charme goodbye? No, not necessarily, although a few tricks may be needed to grab the perfect balance between open spaces’ fluidity and the more fragmented environments – like private space and distinct bedrooms – sought after by modern families. The solution? Just ask New York-based firm Office of Architecture, whose TriBeCa Loft provides a surprising architectural response to such long-standing issue.

 

 

The project aimed to radically convert one floor of a 19th-century decaying warehouse in New York. The pre-existent labyrinthine layout was cancelled, while leaving only key structural features untouched. Service areas were planned at a second stage, in order to create a mutual and smooth visual connection between public and private zones. The living room, den, and kitchen areas were arranged on the east side of the unit so to benefit from a great amount of natural light and clean views of the bedroom windows on the west without sacrificing the privacy of the night-area.

 

 

Further expedients were implemented to make each environment unique – see the series of custom-made accessories such as floating walnut multi-purpose cabinetry and a cantilevered wet bar, here matched with several ceiling-to-floor sliding and accordion panels.

Keenly designed to the last detail, the TriBeCa Loft successfully blends traditional bedrooms’ intimacy with the open-ended nature of a breezy loft.
