A New Chapter for an Old Space

The design challenge for this loft located in a manufacturing building dating to the late 19th Century was to update it with a more contemporary, modern design, renovate the kitchen and bath, and unify the space while respecting the building’s industrial origins. By rethinking existing spaces and contrasting the rough industrial shell of the building with a sleek modernist interior, the Feinmann team fulfilled the unrealized potential of the space.

Working closely with the homeowners, sophisticated materials were chosen to complement a sleek design and completely change the way one experiences the space.

For safety, selection of of a stainless steel post and handrail with stainless steel cable was installed preserving the open feel of the loft space and created the strong connection between loft and downstairs living space.

In the kitchen, other material choices created the desired contemporary look: custom cabinetry that shows off the wood grain, panelized appliances, crisp white Corian countertops and gunmetal ceramic tiles. In the bath, a simple tub with just sheet of glass instead of a shower curtain keeps the small bath feeling as open as possible.

Throughout, a concrete micro-topped floor with multi-color undertones reiterates the building’s industrial origins. Sleek horizontal lines add to the clean modern aesthetic. The team’s meticulous attention to detail from start to finish captured the homeowner’s desire for a look worthy of Dwell magazine.

Hi 33mead and thank you for your question. It is hard to see in this image but there is not a tub door actually. There is a 30" wide opening to get in and out of the tub (by the bathroom door, where the shampoo bottles are on the ledge) and then there is a 30" wide glass "splash" panel, enclosing the front of the tub near the shower controls (not seen in this image). The feedback we have received from the client is that it works well for them. Hope this helps.

Oh, the blue wall? Sorry about that. That color is Benjamin Moore Sea Pine AC-17. (I know it looks more blue in the photo, but trust us, it's more gray than that).

Hi Barbara,
Thanks for your question. It is a concrete micro topping floor. Micro topping gives it the polished look. Glad you like it.
