A gut renovation of an apartment located in a landmarked loft building in Tribeca for a young family.  The apartment is organized to create a dramatic and open loft space for cooking, eating and entertaining while accommodating 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  The historic structure and perimeter walls of the former building are exposed, stripped and whitewashed to contrast with new design elements that are inserted.  The main living space of the loft contains a large blackened stainless steel island and 2 cerused white oak cabinetry elements that anchor the space and define spatial and programmatic areas.  The clean and minimal language within the apartment is balanced by the rich material palette that unifies the spaces and gives the apartment a sense of order.
