Dramatic Loft Space
The client for this loft renovation wanted a much grander space, without sacrificing efficiency. DDA crafted this soaring, tiered space to fit the bill. The expansiveness and grandeur is apparent immediately upon entering the apartment. That’s mostly the result of two simple, yet effective choices: a dramatic new curved ceiling and light coves. The curved ceiling unifies several living areas under one grand structure. Light washes down from the light coves throughout the day. Spotlights shine as ‘column capitals’. Careful use of translucent materials allows efficient division of the space, while maintaining a light and airy atmosphere. A translucent and movable kitchen wall offers better circulation when open, more privacy when closed. A translucent bridge to the loft study area brings light to the living room. For at least one New York family, home sweet home suddenly looks a whole lot grander.
