Simple moves created a downtown loft out of a dreary two bedroom postwar apartment. The expansive living spaces and a floating kitchen compensate for the low ceilings. One wall of the kitchen, wrapped in curly maple veneer, floats – making the living/dining space feel wide and spacious.

A second door was added to the second bedroom, mirroring the door to the terrace, so that this room becomes a swing space, part living room, part bedroom. The TV is recessed into the wall to create a focal point for the living area. Air conditioning equipment was built into a window seat unit. The new floors are bamboo and kitchen counters pietra cardoza limestone.
