Chelsea Loft Combination

Our clients had a lovely Chelsea loft.  But by combining it with the apartment next door, they hit the jackpot:  a full-floor apartment with a private elevator foyer.

Their terrific art collection begged for a gallery setting.  To that end, we designed vast display spaces, flexible lighting, and room for large gatherings.  What’s more, they got it all with no compromise to living spaces.

By enlarging windows and screening rooms with translucent barn doors, we pulled daylight deep into the heart of the loft.  As a result, the views north and south are eye popping, and the kids get ample play space.  All the crisply detailed insertions play against the exposed industrial shell.
