In a city where a 300-square-foot hotel room would be considered spacious this 2000-square-foot loft on Bowery is like a dream come true and is surprisingly about the same price per night as a room at a nice nearby hotel. With its 14-foot-high ceilings hand-selected art and a great room featuring a chef’s kitchen the only problem is that you might end up spending more time staying in than out on the town.
A white brick wall with a two-sided fireplace stands as a curious focal point in the contemporary setting while a sleek staircase with floating wooden steps leads to the top level with private quarters. A fabulous use of accent colors curated decor additions interesting finishes and ample natural ventilation combine to transform this residence into an exceptional showstopper.
A smart kitchen and dining area along with a family room featuring a dashing pool table complete this level. The bedrooms offer captivating views of the wild outdoors and top-notch insulation keeps away the biting cold outside.
Decor choices also reflect the intent of the architects to create a timeless space that fuses modern ergonomics with a more classic design. But it is not just the aesthetics that influenced this choice of a stripped-down industrial look as the homeowners also wanted an energy-efficient home with plenty of natural ventilation and smart green credentials.
But it is the new glass and timber ‘box-shaped addition’ in the rear that truly transforms this old structure and gives it a sparkling new lease on life. This contemporary pavilion contains the new living area kitchen and dining room and opens up towards the gorgeous garden outside.
The makeover started with the removal of the existing indoor partitions to completely overhaul the interior and give it a more open plan living space. By doing away with the unnecessary walls the architects achieved better cross-ventilation and a more flowing interaction between various ‘zones’ of the house.
