1. A long travertine, concrete block and light oak wall conceal a library, woodshop and yoga studio.
2. The textured concrete block wall supports thin travertine slabs and refined oak doors.
3. A custom steel and walnut main stair ascends from the main floor under a skylight.
4. Sixteen-foot ceilings and exposed concrete beams, walls, conduit, and pipes retain the raw loft aesthetic. Floors and window trims are rich walnut to warm up the cool industrial feel.
5. Two large wood-burning fireplaces separate the living room and dining room. Cast concrete steps lead to the smaller private rooms, and are a back stair to the second floor.
6. The large kitchen with concrete floors is open to the casual dining and living spaces. New windows on the west wall look to the Hudson River and sunset views.
7. The family room at the back of the loft is bathed in south light. A bedroom beyond is separated by two shifted partitions that float with open steel and glass to the ceiling.
8. The second floor master suite has access to three terraces with city and Hudson River views. The study beyond the fireplace overlooks the main stair to the living room.
9. A sculptural porcelain tub in the master bath is set in cast concrete to introduce some of the exposed concrete loft material upstairs. Sliding shelves open to the bedroom as desired.
10. A skylight illuminates the tub, and bluestone pavers from the private bedroom terrace flow inside through floor-to-ceiling steel and glass windows and doors to bring the outdoors in.
11. A long skylight links the bedrooms and playroom axially to doors to the north and south terraces.
12. The spectacular scale of the original raw loft space was important to retain. Two duplex lofts are combined, so part of the core is eliminated for direct elevator access.
13. The sixteen-foot ceilings on the main floor are illuminated from every façade, in this case south light in the future family room and bedroom suite.
14. The future kitchen in this location is as open as possible to connect the living room to the family room and maintain the front to back flow of the original space.
15. The angled travertine and block wall separates the private library, woodshop, yoga studio and guest bedroom suite, and contrasts the scale and open flow of the living areas.
16. The master bedroom suite, two kids' rooms and common family room share the second floor pavilion with terraces on three sides and access to the main floor through two stairs.
17. Level changes front to back define separate rooms within the open loft spaces and create a generous movement around the "core" to connect all of the spaces.
18. Bathrooms, a laundry room, the working portion of the kitchen, and more intimate rooms inhabit the edges of the space to allow for as much flow front to back as possible.
19. Separate stairs access the master suite and kids' rooms with adjacent family room. A future lap pool was designed on the edge of the south-facing terrace for light all day long.
20. A large deck above the second floor with panoramic views of cityscape and the Hudson River can be accessed from both north and south terraces.
