For the Brooklyn offices of Delson or Sherman Architects, a raw industrial unit in Dumbo became a serene work space. To make the most of the two exposures and high ceilings, we ran the open office along the sunny window walls. Here, simple black solar shades temper the glare.
This left room for the library, kitchen, and storage at the core. Further, we set these apart using gray walls that stop at 8′, to expose the beams passing by above.
The crisply detailed furnishings boldly contrast with the loft’s rough concrete and exposed ducts. Aligned with the window sills, cherry plywood cubbies add handy storage while defining the spaces. Continuous desk tops made of black granite slabs run the length of the office and drop to the floor.
