The design challenge for this loft renovation was to create a dynamic environment where the client could host a variety of social gatherings while maintaining a domestic quality for everyday living. Located at the site of the once famous Mudd Club at 77 White Street, this two story loft epitomizes New York style with its inventive palette. The use of unique materials like the Chinchilla marble in the Powder Room expresses the ambitions of an Avant-Garde social setting; in juxtaposition the use of warm, soft materials establishes the innate qualities of a home.
Four years and two children later, GRADE was asked to add an additional floor to the existing duplex of the Tribeca Loft. The challenge was to gut the 2,000 square foot space located below their current residence and create an environment that related to the original design. The program included a series of children’s bedrooms along with a master en suite and a dressing room for the couple. GRADE repositioned the existing columns to create a single loaded hall for all rooms to feed into. The end result is a sexy hotel-like design, created by using luxurious materials such as Italian black marble, wool wallpaper and ebonized walnut for the custom millwork and closets. (Sq ft: 6,000)
