Lower Fifth Avenue Loft

Lower Fifth Avenue Loft

This Lower Fifth Avenue Loft building is a corner property located in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. This Beaux-Arts style building was constructed in 1907 and converted to a residential Co-op in 1981.  Our renovation combines two 5th-floor units into an expansive, light-filled haven with both classic and industrial details.

Design features include exposed columns, distressed wide plank oak floors, custom blackened steel and wire-glass partitions, restored original window casings, custom wainscoting, antique bronze hardware, and an elegant glossy coffered ceiling.  The entry hall doubles as a gallery for the client’s extensive art collection, which is highlighted throughout the space against neutral tones.  A quirky grouping of cookie jars pops in the  eating nook, creating a feature visible from the living room.

Project Completion: August 2014
