The loft occupies a full floor of a building in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. The 4,000 sq. ft. loft was completely gutted down to the exterior walls and maple flooring. An open kitchen/living/working space with associated bedrooms and bathrooms was established using new partitions that acknowledged the existing column and beam structural grid. Finply custom millwork and floating partitions were used throughout the loft to accommodate the owner's extensive collection of books and art. A long counter with bookshelves and desk space lines one wall of the living area and a freestanding shelf unit divides the bedroom into sleeping and working areas.
