Light, airy and modern. Complete renovation of 1,100 SF loft in New York City for a single professional with grown children who likes to entertain on an intimate scale. A new floor plan for this former industrial space opens up the loft, allowing natural light and living spaces to flow gracefully around two massive structural columns. Custom European-style cabinetry of rift sawn white oak, a travertine countertop, and a new island provides ample workspace, storage, and seating for two in the kitchen. In the dining area, exposed ceiling beams and a large clerestory interior window create a sense of openness and visual interest.
