SABO project recently completed the gut renovation of a Brooklyn loft located in a former die casting factory built in 1913. After a 1980’s residential conversion, all concrete columns and ceilings were concealed. The removal of most partitions and a vast 4’ dropped ceiling presented the opportunity to reveal the authenticity of the building as well as dramatically expand the space.
SABO project is a design office investigating the fields of architecture, furniture design, set design, installations and environmental strategies.
