A walk-in closet next to the photographer’s studio space in a New York City loft features two frosted glass panels. The design of the industrial loft uses wall planes to sculpt the light and make window-less areas feel airy. The red chairs were designed by Donald Judd and the floors are American white oak planks. The project by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture.
A 5,000-square-foot industrial loft in New York City was renovated as a live-work space for a photographer. The architects cut the ceiling planes to encourage light to bounce and anchor seating areas. The public spaces include a black-and-white kitchen, dining and living areas with architectural elements, such as columns original to the loft. The architects used raw steel, aluminum, white oak and LED lighting. The project by Desai Chia Architecture won a 2018 AIA Institute Honor Award for interior architecture.
Home is all about family. It’s about creating a space where every member of the family feels represented, connected, and safe. Of course most of that happens outside of the realm of interior design, but when it’s reflected in the design of the interior, that’s when a space becomes truly special. Nestled away in a quiet corner of Brooklyn, New York, one home manages to capture all of these things spectacularly. In it, David Land (http://www.davidaland.com/), a well-known photographer and video director, lives with his husband, author Rumaan Alam (http://rumaanalam.com/) and their sons, Simon and Xavier. With family roots in Russia, Bangladesh, and African American heritage, the diversity of the family provides a fertile ground for design that is beautifully representative with a melange of cultural pieces, family heirlooms and items collected during travels.
