In New York City, there are unique spaces that form the architectural vernacular of the city, meaning areas that are quintessential descriptors of living in the big city. The “loft” is one of these spaces. Agencie is thrilled to work on not one but two lofts. This architecture and interior design project combines two adjacent units in a former West Village printing house. The result is a singular, dramatic, magnificent, quintessentially New York loft.
"The kitchen has taken up residence in the digital age."
Agencie worked closely with the client, a financial services professional, to create a kitchen of the future. The marble-accented kitchen is hands-free and smartphone-activated. It features advanced technologies and a smart home system. The system integrates touchless technology, voice automation, and app-controlled Gaggenau appliances. The cameras, sensors, and innovative materials make the kitchen an ultra-sophisticated cooking hub.
Careful consideration of everything material, detail, connection, and relationship between elements because the material palette for the loft was limited. What a joy to focus on a few ingredients to bring out the best in them.
Agencie’s design celebrates the high ceilings, large windows, exposed brick and columns, and the authentic, industrial feel of the loft.
