Loft in Soho

New York City, NY

This Loft in SoHo was designed for a family of four including two young and active children. Borrowed light and ventilation from a window in a large bedroom came to an inner room by the use of a row of clerestory windows.

In one child’s room at the back of the Loft, a play area above his closet was equipped with ladder access, shutters that could be opened to look out on the Common Room, and overhead “crawl tunnels” connecting with the other child’s elevated play area by passing over the hallway between the rooms.

The cabinetry was built by Maine craftsmen who grew and milled their own cherry wood.
