Loft Tour: Nychay Loft
Nested in SoHo, the original loft neighborhood, is this 1,800-sq.-ft. medical professional bachelor’s “weekend urban getaway.” We found this pretty lil’ one through Resolution: 4 Architecture who designed the space of the entire fifth floor of a newly constructed building, and wanted to separate the public rooms from the private rooms, since the loft was intended to be used primarily for entertaining. The architecture firm organized the space so that the entertaining area would be one large “box,” or a linear volume-of-utility along one edge.
You’ll also notice how each specific “room” is defined by a piece of furniture and its material, each piece acting as a signifier and differing from the next. The built-in and free-standing furniture offer compliments to and soften the raw space: the office area is identified by the mahogany desk, the dining room by the rosewood table, the kitchen by the teak island, and the living room is defined by a wenge wall. The entire space comes together and flows nicely with a system of translucent and sliding partitions.
