Grand St Loft is a Soho penthouse with a simple aesthetic, located in a landmarked artists building in New York City, designed by the New York-based Australian architect Amee Allsop.
The brief began with the need to house a large designer shoe collection worthy of attention. The master bedroom of this penthouse was large enough to add a generous walk-in wardrobe. It was important to keep the bedroom feeling spacious. The solution was to add a freestanding mirror box around the wardrobe which not only reflects the light and space but allowed the existing wood rafters to continue.
A modern built-in desk with floating shelves was added to the guest bedroom/office allowing personal items to be put away safely and neatly when guests stay.
Custom-made blackened steel pulls were designed for the existing kitchen as a simple solution to replace old ones. A cost-effective way of updating the look.
