Loft spaces: more than Bohemian delights

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


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.
