Scandinavian Minimalism Meets the Rough Aesthetics in Tribeca, New York

Scandinavian Minimalism Meets the Rough Aesthetics in Tribeca,

Designer: Soren Rose Studio
Project: Hudson Street apartment
Location: New York, United States
Photography: Thomas Loof

It’s difficult, strike that, it’s impossible to find a pre-war space in TriBeCa that hasn’t been renovated, but that was just the case with this blank canvas from the 1800th, with a modest 1,400 square-foot, one-room studio that hadn’t been touched for at least 50 years. Most lofts are dark in the middle, but this space has windows on three sides, plus an enormous skylight creating this amazing light Scandinavian minimalism that we love.

In the old days it was a paper factory, and in the old oak floors you could see the oil stains and mounting screws from where the machines had been. The apartment has become another great example how we join Scandinavian modernism without forgetting that we are in New York.
