In New York City, there are unique spaces that form the architectural vernacular of the city. Meaning, spaces 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 advance technologies and a smart home system. The system integrates touchless technology, voice automation and app-controlled Gaggenau appliances. The cameras, sensors and innovative materials turn the kitchen into an ultra-sophisticated cooking hub.
Because the material palette for the loft was so limited, it allowed everything material, detail, connection and relationship between elements to be carefully considered. What a joy to focus on a few ingredients in order 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.
