Presenting our newest sales listing, a temple-like loft space in the heart of SoHo, refined by its smartly considered architectural design, and rich interior palette.
Originally designed by architect Alastair Standing as his personal residence, it's been our client's family home for over 16 years. There have so many special family moments created here, including some famously good (neighborhood) house parties. More than anything, the space has provided a complete and relaxing escape from the routine of daily city life.
Originally a large open studio, the architect's primary objective was to open the space to the sky and once introduced to keep the light 'moving' until it could be refracted with the greatest benefit. This was accomplished with a large glass skylight and glass block floors. The combination of high and lower spaces is intended to continue the scale of the existing loft volume but form more intimate spaces for living.
The two lofted bedrooms are elevated on the glass block floors allowing light and ventilation to come from the skylight. Some light will be reflected off the mirrored end wall and some light will pass straight through to the floor below. The floor becomes the vision window for the space. Privacy is controlled by a combination of vision and diffused glass block. When ultimate opacity is required, rugs are to be laid down. The artificial light for the lower spaces is concealed below the bed platform in the bedrooms and is filtered by the color of the glass. The bedrooms are connected by an aluminum bridge that bisects the 16' high central space adjacent to the work space.
Alastair Standing is the managing member of the firm Standing Architecture, founded in 1991. Born and educated in England, he received his architectural qualifications from two top London schools. Upon graduation he worked for Zaha Hadid Architects in London before moving to New York to work for Arquitectonica.
