Incredible TriBeCa Loft: Price/Sheetz Residence

TriBeCa Loft Residence-01-1 Kindesign

The Price/Sheetz Residence is an incredible loft home situated in TriBeCa, New York, designed by New York based studio A+I Design Corp. The spacious loft features 4,700 square feet of living space and was completely re-designed to create flow between two obviously separate East and West halves of the apartment, which was a result of combining two buildings in the past. The architect’s priority was to preserve the loft’s history as a warehouse, and later an artist’s studio by keeping and accentuating its inherent openness, large steel, material textures and exposed structure. To accentuate the exposed brick wall, a new staircase was cantilevered off of the structural element. The wall was extended up to the top of the stair and clad with re-used brick that had been recovered after demolishing another part of the home. A skylight was added above the stairway to draw in more light and a new outdoor roof terrace and garden was created. The kitchen and breakfast nook were re-located to the brightest area of the apartment where there were two large existing skylights, flooding the space with natural light.

It was important to separate public from private, however instead of hallways and closed doors, large sliding “partitions” allow for uninterrupted flow throughout the day, with option to screen off the children’s’ play area and family bedrooms. With 3 children and 2 dogs, it was critical to plan for ample storage throughout the apartment, custom built-in benches, credenzas and bookcases work well to keep clutter hidden while seamlessly integrating with surrounding finishes. In the children’s playroom a new lofted platform with ladders, trap doors and writable walls was designed for playing and storage, while child-friendly low ceiling spaces where they can explore, read and study under an existing skylight.

All of the new materials were selected to accentuate the authentic quality of the space enhancing with warm, rich natural finishes such as oiled old-growth walnut floors and cabinets, cold rolled steel stair and doors, earth tone tiles and bamboo counters. While the finishes feel high end, all of the tactile surfaces are child and pet friendly, durable and will develop in character as they age.
