Upper West Side
New York City


Three small apartments located in a former 1880s hotel are combined to become a loft apartment with home office and guest quarters. Passages at existing load-bearing walls are widened to create connections between dining and living spaces. The rustic character of the existing brick structure is maintained, and new interventions are clearly delineated. Door panels are monumental in scale and detailing is minimal. Readily available materials provide a rich, yet neutral, backdrop for the owners’ art collection.
