When one first moves to New York City, there are many terms you’ll come across that are in the vernacular of the city, terms that seem to be quintessential descriptors of life in the big city. “Loft” resonates in our imagination as one of these words, and we couldn’t have been more thrilled when we were given an opportunity to work on merging two lofts to create one dramatic, magnificent, quintessentially West Village Loft.

Joining apartments in New York City has the added burden of merging the tax lots. In truth, the administrative aspects of design work require equal if not greater effort by the design team. In buildings like these, one has to work with a third party reviewing architect/engineer, prior to filing with the Landmarks Preservation Commission and then the Department of Buildings. Sadly there are not exciting images of the piles of paperwork completed pre-construction.

The combination of Scandinavian materiality and texture bring a warmth to the subtlety of the line work articulated throughout the apartment. There’s an ongoing game of contrasts with light and dark woods, bright and somber metals. The West Village Loft is intended to be both a personal respite from City life, and also a canvas upon which unique furnishings and artwork can be displayed and rotated in curated dispositions around the apartment.

Abierta House by Roberto Ramírez Pizarro

Abierta house is a project for a couple of my dearest friends. A small piece of land in one of the most exclusive developments in the city was the perfect excuse to put on practice what the project represents itself: unfold the barrier between the outdoor and the indoor space.
