This incredible industrial style loft in downtown New York showcases enviable views of the Hudson River, the former apartment of actress Kirsten Dunst. The actress had purchased the 7,211 square foot (670 square meters), two bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom SoHo penthouse apartment back in 2007 for $3.09 million. The loft is situated in one of the most iconic buildings in Manhattan, and underwent a complete gut renovation right after the actress acquired the home. The loft also features a spacious living room and stylish kitchen, which have been furnished with the finest blend of modern and vintage pieces, creating an industrial-chic style that is very characteristic of the neighborhood. Upon entrance to the loft, you will notice a spacious library and sitting area with a separate powder room. This leads to an open plan living area, encompassing a kitchen, dining room and lounge area. The kitchen has been updated with marble countertops and Wolf and SubZero appliances and the adjacent dining room seats eight guests comfortably. Expansive, southwest facing windows allows natural light to bathe the spaces throughout the day. The bright and airy master bedroom retreat features an antique style king-sized bed and an adjoining bathroom with a large vintage clawfoot foot tub, separate shower and heated towel holder on a beautiful custom mosaic tiled floor. Additional features of the penthouse loft includes soaring 11 foot high ceilings, custom wide planked wood flooring, and a state-of-the-art security system. The best part about this amazing apartment is that it is now currently being offered for rent. This space can be all yours for the asking price of $12,500 per month, spotted on Douglas Elliman!

A striking contemporary loft has been elegantly updated for a family with three young children by Ben Herzog Architect, located in Tribeca, New York. Comprised of 2,200 square feet of living space, this three bedroom apartment needed to be re-configured and given a fresh makeover. The clients requested that the home have a child proof design by day, yet bestow an elegant aesthetic during the evening hours. Interior designer Keven Dumais was called into action to infuse warmth, color and texture to the home. The design duo worked together to reconfigure spaces to create a more livable footprint. The kitchen was re-designed, closet re-shaped, a full bath was turned into a powder room to allow a more spacious laundry room and the HVAC was redirected into the ceiling. Notable finishes were added to the interiors, such as wide plank oak flooring and custom built-in cabinetry. The kitchen was a major overhaul, receiving a brand new built-in bar, a fully landscaped terrace that travels the length of the loft, a center island with a breakfast bar and tons of storage. A notable design feature is the breakfast nook, showcasing a built-in banquette with floor-to-ceiling bleached walnut paneling, which helps to conceal a flat screen TV. The apartment has a predominantly neutral color palette, which has worked well to create modern interiors with the warmth a traditional design aesthetic.

This space can also cater to overnight guests thanks to a built-in Murphy bed, which is concealed by a wall unit that displays a chalkboard on the lower half and a cork board on the upper half.
The master bedroom was designed to be a soothing oasis, dressed in shades of mauve, blue and gray.

This small modern apartment showcases a masculine design aesthetic by Studio ro+ca, located in Ipanema, a neighborhood in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The principle idea was to use space more efficiently in this small 645 square foot (60 square meters) apartment. The idea was to unite all the spaces, including the kitchen, living room and even the guest room with the inclusion of a sliding door that can close the space off for privacy. The owner of this intriguing home is a bachelor and practicing lawyer for the past 30 years. The client wished to have his home designed with a masculine tone and enough circulation space to entertain friends with the convenience of a large bathroom and spacious closet. To delineate between the kitchen and living room, the kitchen ceiling was painted black and the living room was given a fresh coat of white paint. In the kitchen, black cabinetry, stainless steel appliances characterize the owner, while a yellow dining table in the center of the space infuses life and contrast. In the living room, the TV wall is clad with bricks which extends through the hall / closet to the bathroom, which helps to unite the spaces. Carefully selected furnishings sit in harmony to the project, creating a comfortable atmosphere.
A white door leads to the guest room and a wardrobe travels the length of the hallway, which connects to the master bedroom. The bathroom also features a touch of warmth from the brick, which contrasts nicely with the white cabinetry and walls. The completed result is a masculine atmosphere that flows throughout without being overdone, creating the perfect environment for a bachelor. We love the mix of black and white contrasts in this cool apartment and how much design is in such a small space. Impressive pad! What do you think, was this design successful?

An old stable has been converted into a stunning loft apartment with original details by MdAA Associated Architects, located in Trastevere, the 13th rione of Rome, Italy. The region played host to many stables up until the late 1900s, with the barns being more spacious that the typical homes in the area. They were typically covered with immense trusses, which was preserved in the restructuring of the home. The interiors feature soaring ceilings, with the tallest hight being 32 feet. The biggest design challenge to fulfill on the client’s brief involved the master bedroom retreat. They desired to have complete privacy in this space, completely closing it off from the main living spaces on the ground level, where voices would carry. Wood flooring flows throughout the entire space of the home, which helps to infuse it with warmth. Above the living room is the bedroom structure, which takes on a tree house effect. A private retreat away from all the disturbances of the social spaces. This space is suspended high off the ground, with structural supports that emulate a tree trunk. The geometry of this private zone takes on an unusual shape, comprised of pieces of riveted iron.
Custom bookshelves creates a nice little niche against the wall for reading. The light fixtures have been well placed throughout the home to help set the mood. The ceiling has been punctuated with skylights to help diffuse natural light into the home. The finishing result is an intriguing apartment design that has a warm aesthetic and spatial intimacy, while at the same time fulfilling a childhood fantasy of a treehouse.
Our favorite design feature of this conversion is how the heart of the home is the master bedroom, an intimate treehouse design within the interior of a home. It doesn’t get much cooler than that! What do you think? If you were inspired by this old stable conversion, we have featured a couple of others here on 1 Kindesign awhile back: 18th century horse stable converted into artist’s loft and Monumental Coach House breathes new life.
