New York : A Brooklyn artist loft

Brooklyn Creative Loft

Renovation of a light metal fabrication warehouse
 in Brooklyn, New York, as an artist's loft. Three levels of the loft allowed
free and comfortable placement of components, from the library and
kitchen to bedroom and studio. Design and realisation by BWArchitects

This dramatic conversion of a light manufacturing warehouse to an artist
 live/work loft studio juxtaposes the gritty, industrial character of the building
exterior with warm, expansive interior spaces flooded by natural light.

A retractable translucent wall divides the living and working areas. 
When closed, its translucency directs filtered light from the linear skylight and northern
 exposure rear facade towards the library and studio areas. A large sloped skylight acts as
 a space definer between the live and work areas and a white steel and glass staircase
 connects the lower level with sleeping rooms and a large roof deck
 occupying the floor above.
