The Collector’s Loft, located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York is a gallery and apartment loft all in one. The gently flowing curved walls create hybrid zones where the living areas and exhibition areas meet. The exhibition walls also blend gently with the library shelves. Designed by UNStudio, the architect used floor to ceiling glass panels to frame the compelling views of Manhattan. This loft design unifies art and city living, creating the ultimate modern interior space.
Interior designer Roseann Repetti of West Chin Architect (WCA) turned a small New York City apartment into a modern and fashionable part-time residence for her client. The blue glass windows of the original apartment fit nicely with the new modern design. By using neutral carpets and fabrics to balance the deep blue colour of the windows, the apartment is given a modern twist. The streamlined look of the apartment creates an open living space that is both practical and inviting.
Robert and Cortney Novogratz of Sixx Design took a beat-up old building in New York City and transformed it into a functional, chic and fun family home for the couple and their six children. They installed glass balconies to maximize the view from the inside. For the interiors, they created a sleek and contemporary look and put a working vintage fountain on the back of the outdoor patio for contrast. For their kids, they built a basketball court on the roof and designed a dome over the court to mirror the dome of the building across the street.
