UNStudio Loft for Manhattan Art Collectors

loft1 architecture

This renovation for an existing loft comes from the international design group UNStudio, known for its signature curvy skyscrapers.

(Perhaps because of this international skyscraper engineering reputation) the architects were allowed to remove part of the old loft building’s exterior wall with its fussy old loft window, so they could insert a ceiling to floor glass wall instead.

Then, using the reflection of recessed lighting in the ceiling of the window soffit, they create an intriguing ‘framed view’ effect of downtown Manhattan.

Like many Greenwich Village lofts, this is not sure if it wants to be an art gallery or a living space.

The entire central space of the loft is in fact an art gallery.

The ceiling is variously opaque and luminous, providing ambient lighting right where it is needed.

Within the existing constrictions of a Greenwich Village loft building, they have created a curved art space for their art collector clients.

As perfect as if produced out of white plastic like an iPod, here a doorway curves under at the floor.

The architects repeat their fluid floor plan in built-in furnishings like this lovely window table.

The ultra calm and controlled interior is seamless as if molded in white plastic: a fitting loft for an art collection.
