Located in Williamsburg, this 1100sf loft exists in an old warehouse that had recently been redeveloped. The interiors were generic and poorly executed. AlexAllen Studio was hired by a director and furniture collector to gut renovate the apartment, stripping it to its bare bones and exposing its character in a clean and minimal manner. The bright white streamlined kitchen rests upon wood floors that were refinished from their super lacquered and yellow state with a Danish wood lye and oil, giving them a more natural feel. The wood beams and decking were exposed in the living space, and an old wooden column was revealed and left with its worn and peeling paint patina. The bathroom floors were redone with a high gloss epoxy paint to juxtapose with the textured plaster walls and concrete sinks. In addition to a series of small spatial manipulations, the resulting loft combines a refreshing simplicity with material tactility and hints of its former lives.
