Today’s house tour finds us in the concrete jungle of New York, where a surprisingly warm home meets us in the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world. Sit back, relax and allow yourself to be transported to a world of raw material wonder.
This stunning loft in Williamsburg (New York) is designed by Elizabeth Roberts Architecture. The 3,500 ft² (which is approx. 325 m²) live / work space is shared by a married couple: he is a chef and food writer and she is a sculptor.
The couple found the large, industrial, ground floor space after years of searching for an industrial space to transform that would function as workspaces for both of their disciplines and as a comfortable home.
Approximately one half of the space is used as a sculpture studio, the other half is living space including a spacious chef’s kitchen for TV productions and events. Monumental, ten-foot by fifteen-foot sliding partitions function to open or close the work spaces from the living spaces creating a flexible balance between life and work.Via
