Meat Packing DuplexContemporary Living Room, New York



Packing a lot of function into a small space requires ingenuity and skill, exactly what was needed for this one-bedroom gut in the Meatpacking District. When Axis Mundi was done, all that remained was the expansive arched window. Now one enters onto a pristine white-walled loft warmed by new zebrano plank floors. A new powder room and kitchen are at right. On the left, the lean profile of a folded steel stair cantilevered off the wall allows access to the bedroom above without eating up valuable floor space. Beyond, a living room basks in ample natural light. To allow that light to penetrate to the darkest corners of the bedroom, while also affording the owner privacy, the façade of the master bath, as well as the railing at the edge of the mezzanine space, are sandblasted glass. Finally, colorful furnishings, accessories and photography animate the simply articulated architectural envelope.

Photography? Missoni pillows? (Or too bright)?

It can create a focal point on a lofty wall. Loft-height ceilings call for art with super-sized proportions. But choosing artwork on such a scale is challenging: How do you know you won’t get tired of it? A beach photograph has a few points going for it, including the versatility of sky-sea-and-sand colors (which go with just about everything) and the popular appeal of the subject, which means it should be easy to get the other members of your household on board.
