To accommodate a young family, SKAPC transformed the interiors of one of the rare, quintessential lofts remaining in New York’s Soho neighborhood. The contemporary family home, which is situated in an iconic cast-iron building, now includes four bedrooms with built-in closets, three full bathrooms, a laundry room, study, family room, playroom and an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen. SKAPC designed the space around original floor-to-ceiling columns, separating the open plan area into smaller defined spaces. The firm’s design also situated the family room directly off of the open plan kitchen, dining and living room areas, creating a continuous flow of the space while cleverly incorporating large pocket doors to afford the option of privacy. The galley kitchen now boasts an island bar, which provides a casual eating and entertaining spot. In addition, the suite of rooms for the children features two distinct bedrooms with doors opening into a common play space. SKAPC’s design maximized the large-scale windows, which wrap around the sun-filled front corner apartment. The scope of work also included leveling the floor, fixing the anomaly of the rear 40 percent being raised a step.
