The 4,000 sf, full floor D+L Loft is situated in the heart of Manhattan’s trendy East Village and has a 360-degree view of the city. To highlight the loft’s expansiveness, we exposed the low slung, concrete plank ceiling and designed the spaces around a translucent material core. The center, honeycomb-like panels fold around the loft’s large truss and contain all private areas, such as bathrooms, walk-in closets, and a powder room. In the bathroom, a continuous surface made of waterproof fiber-reinforced plaster envelopes the sink, shapes the shower basin, and nests the bathtub. Adjacent to the core, bent walnut forms niches and opens to a communal space, as well as lining the library and bedroom.
