From the architect: “Partnering with YBA Architects, and hiring Leif Warnberg as his General Contractor, [the resident] had a very precise vision for the functional design he wanted in the 1,100 square foot space. Being 7’ tall, Steve had long loved the soaring 18’ ceilings and historic windows, with spectacular views of the park. The layout is open and functional for a man of his height, with all of the kitchen and master bath counters designed and built 8″taller than standard, to a 42-inch height. Every square inch of the space was thoughtfully considered, including closets with slide-out shelving built to hold his size 17 shoes, and a pantry hidden behind custom-welded steel and mirror doors. The owner has a love for unique, one-of-a-kind spaces, and this elegant dream loft is no exception!”
From the builder: “The apartment was an original 51 square meter one-bedroom, and now after a two-year comprehensive renovation [has been] transformed into a highly functional and spacious two-bedroom apartment. By adding custom-made furniture and sliding doors made of birch plywood, the owners has emphasized the Nordic interior style with a touch of Japanese simplicity to make a modern city home. The original plan is now re-arranged by an architect to be as functional as possible, and at the same time utilize the brightness from the many windows the apartment has. The Japanese inspired sliding door goes from floor to ceiling and function as a fully flexible room divider.”
