SoHo Loft by Nusla Design

SoHo Loft is a minimal interior design located in Soho, New York, designed by Nusla Design. The building was formerly the silver factory for Tiffany & Co. jewelers. Given the significant history, it was important that the original details were maintained and restored while updating with newer elements and functionality. The dropped ceiling was removed, the double-hung wooden windows were restored and the brick walls were exposed. New wide board floors were treated using a traditional Scandinavian process. The industrial aesthetic, including the black steel windows and large custom steel panels for the bedroom wall were also a nod to the history of the loft. The clean modern lines against the uneven historic lines of the walls and beams against the new clean white floor and white walls provides a sense of serenity.

To contrast with the unfinished white walls and the raw concrete tiles, the bronze tombac and concrete kitchen from Reform adds texture and richness. The full-height book-matched marble wall in the kitchen complements the rich bronze of the kitchen and also elevates the space adding a hint of luxury within the industrial space. The loft is perched at the back of the building and is surrounded by yards and trees, we maximized the openings for the existing windows and added four new window openings in the rear wall and also two skylights in the roof. The natural light flowing into the apartment contributes to the airy atmosphere. The apartment contains two separate large bedrooms with bathrooms en-suite. The floor plan consists of a large open living room with a dining area at one end and an opening living space at the other.
