In the former American Express warehouse building, TriBeCa, NY two spaces were combined into a 3000 sq. ft. residential loft. The design evolved from the local warehouse history, materials, and forms of the existing spaces. Materials were selected that have age or been aged. Materials such as: chemically teated steel wall panels, zinc, new steel baseboards to reflect existing metal capitals, custom metal lighting at vaulted ceilings, wired glass at bath door/partition, and stained fumed oak. The kitchen incorporates custom center pivoting windows that open to a pantry located behind the length of the kitchen.
