A striking contemporary loft has been elegantly updated for a family with three young children by Ben Herzog Architect, located in Tribeca, New York. Comprised of 2,200 square feet of living space, this three bedroom apartment needed to be re-configured and given a fresh makeover. The clients requested that the home have a child proof design by day, yet bestow an elegant aesthetic during the evening hours. Interior designer Keven Dumais was called into action to infuse warmth, color and texture to the home. The design duo worked together to reconfigure spaces to create a more livable footprint. The kitchen was re-designed, closet re-shaped, a full bath was turned into a powder room to allow a more spacious laundry room and the HVAC was redirected into the ceiling. Notable finishes were added to the interiors, such as wide plank oak flooring and custom built-in cabinetry. The kitchen was a major overhaul, receiving a brand new built-in bar, a fully landscaped terrace that travels the length of the loft, a center island with a breakfast bar and tons of storage. A notable design feature is the breakfast nook, showcasing a built-in banquette with floor-to-ceiling bleached walnut paneling, which helps to conceal a flat screen TV. The apartment has a predominantly neutral color palette, which has worked well to create modern interiors with the warmth a traditional design aesthetic.

This living room area plays double duty as a play area and a more formal furniture arrangement for when the homeowners want to entertain guests. This space can also cater to overnight guests thanks to a built-in Murphy bed, which is concealed by a wall unit that displays a chalkboard on the lower half and a cork board on the upper half.
The master bedroom was designed to be a soothing oasis, dressed in shades of mauve, blue and gray.
