This two-story loft atop a former refrigerator facility in Tribeca was designed for an Upper East Side couple transitioning to an empty-nest downtown lifestyle. The project team was tasked with the challenge of preserving the spaciousness of an undivided loft and its breath-taking panoramic city views while creating areas of privacy and containment. Floating volumes, kept away from the building’s periphery, add intimacy and warmth. A luminescent staircase, the defining feature of the main living area as well as the first thing one sees upon entering the loft, connects the lower level to a new master suite and outdoor terrace above.
