Union Square Loft by Naiztat + Ham Architects
This is a loft interior designed by Naiztat + Ham Architects in Manhattan, New York. A 3600 square foot the Union Square Area exemplifies the industrial era it was born out of.
With high vaulted ceilings, structural steel columns, floor through an open configuration and feel is hidden by years of adhoc and maze-like modifications. Both the architect and the owner saw the potential in this gem, but it is understood also that there is a need for luxury in a utilitarian function. The first idea was to open the chamber, exposing all the elements attached to the building (ie brick and terra cotta walls and ceilings, columns, etc.). The second is to place a modern and simple intervention in an envelope to define loft living space with no doors or other conventional methods of closure. view more.
