Tribeca loft

This highly covetable loft in Tribeca, was designed by the New Zealand based Feron Hay.  Minimal intervention into the existing structure was achieved by using steel and glass platforms placed between columns to create rooms within the apartment.  These panels are separate from the perimeter building, and shadow lines keep this illusion where surfaces meet.  Sliding screens and fabric curtains contain smaller volumes, allowing the users to adjust these spaces.  Contrast is used effectively, discarding of unnecessary elements to give the clean lines that define this apartment.  Private areas use a darker, more intimate base, while public spaces are flooded in light.  Bespoke blown glass pendants are strung throughout the loft.  This loft has a comfortable simplicity that I admire.  Feron Hay's signature is simple elements and uncluttered spaces, as is visible here.
