Family Loft – Lincoln Center NYC

  • A Jacob Hashimoto collage above the oversized sofa sets the scene: fine art meets family living.

This growing family had moved from a three-bedroom apartment in a small post-war building in Greenwich Village to a dramatically larger, vastly different space: a 3000-square foot loft in a converted former warehouse near Lincoln Center. Challenged by scarce natural light and impractically long dark hallways, we rearticulated these spaces into a dwelling very human in scale, suited to entertaining and to more intimate family time alike.

The furnishings, a mix of custom contemporary pieces with 1940s French design, are a lively array, preserving the downtown Manhattan edge of the family’s former residence while lending a greater level of comfort and elegance to the new loft. Layers of African and Asian textiles and artifacts augment the distinctive eclecticism of the rooms.

The finished Lincoln Center loft reveals the fresh character that architectural rethinking, sensitive detailing and imaginative furniture choices can attain in a near-raw space.
