Studio Dean-Wolf Architects – with offices in New York City – combined modern building materials to turn the former warehouse townhouse in Tribeca, New York, into an extraordinary five-story apartment. Covering 10,500 square feet, the luxurious Inverted Warehouse-Townhouse project uses Corten steel panels and frameless burgundy glass to shape a fantastic void used as an interior garden.
By renovating the loft building and adding some key architectural elements, the architects managed to create a stunning collection of interior spaces. Seeing that the old warehouse occupied a lot of space, the team of architects inverted the usual floor plan, constructing three double story voids that acts as gardens, allowing natural light and fresh air to reach the deepest parts of the interior and capturing views of the changing seasons. Exterior courtyards form an interesting lifestyle, challenging the inhabitants to take advantage of the modern architecture connected to the surroundings, in a beautiful city like New York.
