A loft, near Gramercy Park in Manhattan, provided the opportunity to explore an industrial aesthetic and visible structure - details often sought but rarely an existing condition. The re-partitioning strategy, intended to maximize daylight, reveals the existing wood post-and-beam structural grid, imply discrete spatial zones across larger open spaces. A corridor at the North edge of the apartment sets an enfilade of rooms to improve circulation. A palette of luxurious stones - polished onyx, wire-brushed limestone, vein-cut marble, terrazzo and engineer Corian - layers richness over bleached oak floors and beneath an existing red oak ceiling.
