Every creative dreams of having a huge loft where they can work, chill and be inspired. This huge loft was designed specifically to meet a creatives need. With of nice open space, a mini library/gallery and art works floating around, this place is gorgeous. At the desk there is also an epic view so you can watch the world go round while your at your computer.
The design for an existing loft located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan explores the interaction between a gallery and living space. The main walls in the loft flow through the space, and together with articulated ceilings create hybrid conditions in which exhibition areas merge into living areas. While the walls form a calm and controlled backdrop for the works of art, the ceiling is more articulated in its expression of this transition. By interchanging luminous and opaque, the ceiling creates a field of ambient and local lighting conditions, forming an organizational element in the exhibition and the living areas. In addition the former windows in the South wall have been replaced by floor to ceiling glass panes that frame and extend compelling views, over a full glass balcony, toward downtown Manhattan.
