The incredible Greene Street Loft is a redesigned commercial/industrial loft space in New York designed by Slade Architecture. The bright and open contemporary loft is about 3000 square feet (300 square meters). From the architects: â€œThe historic front and back industrial windows define the large loft feel. In order to emphasize these and to allow light and views into the 100â€™ deep building, we kept the space very open front to back. Three 8 foot tall freestanding volumes arranged down the center of the existing space define the different program areas. The first volume is an aluminum bookcase we designed to hold the ownerâ€™s collection of traditional Korean trunks. The bookcase separates the living, dining and kitchen areas from the study.â€
â€œThe second volume contains a built in desk area facing the study and a closet on the other side. Two hidden doors allow the corridor between this volume and the third volume (the walk in closet) to be closed off. The third volume contains the other side of the large walk-in closet and the master bathroom. The master bath has a large convertible tub/shower. The shower has a teak slat floor that can be removed to reveal a large soaking bathtub.â€
â€œWe selected all of the furniture and finishes. The custom table we designed out of a single, 19′ long and 48â€ wide, slice of Mokore is the focal point for parties and entertaining. It seats about 20 people and runs the length of the east facing windows. The solid top was delivered with a crane and sits on two custom-made blackened steel supports. We kept the original industrial floor and stained it to provide a strong counterpoint to the new insertions.â€
