Lobby/entrance for loft building
New York City



Renovation in the Chelsea area of New York.

The project’s brief was to update the entrance in the spirit of contemporary design and material, plus the history of the building, which used to be collection of manufacturing lofts for sewing machines. The industrial heritage prompted the image of the corrugated stainless steel and was extended to the undulated glass, manufactured by glass artist Joel Berman of Vancouver. A small stainless steel console table was designed specifically for the space, in the same undulating theme.

Area: 245 square feet /
