Completed in May 2011, this private residence is a loft located on Manhattan’s Greene Street, in the design-driven Soho district. GRADE designed the loft to serve primarily as an entertaining space for a large family of five, opening up the living, dining and play areas to create a large unified space ideal for social gatherings and musical performances, per the family’s hobbies.

Intimate enclaves made of dark wood panels dot the expansive loft, ideal for more private, laid-back socializing. An elongated built-in bench visually connects the woodwork and built-in cabinetry throughout the space. In keeping with the client’s musical inclinations, GRADE repurposed the living room area’s back wall to serve as a stage for the family when practicing instruments or performing for friends.  (Sq ft: 3,712)
