Words from the architect

This 3, 000 sq ft loft is located in the Tribeca district of downtown Manhattan on the sixth floor of a converted industrial building overlooking Canal Street. The loft is designed for an international businessman based in Madrid and New York with extensive collections of art and books.

The project purpose was to create spaces that reflected various aspects of the clients collection of arts and books. By creating various spaces that reference and display the art collection, the clients personal interests are integrated into his living space.

Materials: Walnut cabinets were used throughout for display. Floors are of a quarter sawn maple. Full height glass panels divide spaces and the tearoom light fixture is made of a single enormous piece of origami.

Organization: Entering the loft one is in a tall gallery space that opens into the main space of the loft. Directly across this open space is a full height glass wall leading out to a large terrace looking North and East, which admits abundant light into the loft. Facing the terrace is a thirty-foot long curving walnut bookcase, which has been designed with integral lighted vitrines for the display of rare books or art objects. Other vitrines complete the perimeter of the main space. The space opens towards the East onto a tatami mat area. The master bedroom suite is adjacent to the tatami mat room and is designed to flow spatially into a luxurious master bathroom.
