The TriBeCa Loft was completed in 2011 as a live/work & Gallery space for a renowned Korean artist. The 7300 square foot penthouse also has an additional 2000 square foot sprawling outdoor terrace. The residential side of the space was designed with the intent of entertaining, as well as being conducive to the young family’s modern, everyday life. The massive sliding doors and high ceilings offer sweeping floor to ceiling views of lower Manhattan throughout. The client wanted to incorporate the cityscapes in to their space. The utilization of a muted color palate and modern furnishings, in conjunction with the warm tones of the artists hand crafted furniture pieces and art, we were able to achieve the clean, yet inviting, aesthetic the client wanted.
The interior design began with a custom, grey stained rift white oak floor from Devon & Devon that both the designer and the client fell in love with. The rest of the palate was pulled from there; soft grey tones, highlighted with crisp white lacquer mill work, custom polished white glassos and shades of deep wood from the artists own hand carved accent pieces.
This residence & gallery is a celebration of clients’ inspired lifestyle, expressed through the design. Overall, it is an expression of the unity between art and architecture.
