Loft Tour: Two Floors Combined in NYC
Back in 1996, renowned architecture firm Fernlund + Logan took on a difficult endeavor: the combination of two adjacent floors in a former factory. The process involved removing a quadrant of the floor area between them in order to create a large open space doubled in height. This loft on Renwick Street features new and old elements – the floors are the original concrete while the walls were completely reconstructed.
The décor is kept modern and minimal with an emphasis on function. Our favorite detail is a stunning built-in library that extends half way up one of the walls, showcasing a significant book collection. This renovation and space was ahead of its time; we can’t wait to see more loft projects from the firm. For more information on the space, visit Fernlund and Logan’s website.
