Tribeca Loft is a 1500 square foot loft situated in a 19th century brick building on the West Side Highway in Tribeca, New York City. The renovation by Workstead consisted of a complete overhaul of the apartment, with new flooring, walls, millwork, and furniture. The original ceilings were uncovered during the course of the renovation, and a new kitchen was installed, crafted of custom zinc panels to reflect the light of the Hudson River below. A white oak bench and a custom radiator shroud run the length of the apartment, while new wood and glass sliding doors create a subtle separation between the living and sleeping spaces. The bathrooms were inspired by a visit to Donald Judd’s own loft in Soho, and are made from stained oak boards supplied by LV Wood. New furniture from Espasso, coupled with Box Sofa by Autoban, pair well with a chair, coffee table, and bed designed and built by Asher Israelow. Minimal in approach, but rich in materials, the apartment is a reflection of the context of the building, and the landscape just outside.
