The Noho Duplex in New York City has street level entry. With the windows on the front exterior of the space, this left little room for privacy in the home's previous design. The homeowners wanted an industrial feel for their home, so they wanted to stick with a more modern design and didn't want the clutter of having to hang curtains to get privacy, so designers created a two-fold privacy plan. First, they replaced the homes existing windows with frosted paned windows to obscure the view from the street. Then, they added custom fabricated, full height, glazed steel bi-fold doors with frosted glass panels to create a sort of "foyer" in the space. These doors are retractable, so once the family is in for they night, they can fold up the doors and enjoy the open spaces in their home.
This stainless steel refrigerator is framed with a contemporary china cabinet highlighted by in shelf lighting for a bright, eye-catching look. Glass doors showcase the elegant dish display inside forming a creative and unique accent wall.
To temper the airiness of high ceilings, designers painted the walls of this bedroom a darker shade for a more intimate mood. A sliding glass-and-steel door closes the room off from the rest of the loft.
Glass and steel doors provide a sense of openness between the master bedroom and bath while still delineating the space with sharp form. Custom vertical shiplap in white shares the wall with modern black sconces, a velvet headboard and matching wooden nightstands.
White french door cabinets open up to reveal wood shelves and sliding wood drawers for an organized and easily accessible pantry. Built in stainless steel refrigerators frame the pantry for a sleek contemporary look.
This black pantry door pops against the bright white walls and ceiling in this kitchen. Exposed ceiling beams and the floor frame the space with wood elements above and below. A stainless steel refrigerator is fitted into the wall neighboring the pantry.
The table in this library is nestled between two book shelves. The steel doors allow in light to the space, which gives homeowners the perfect place to read. This space could also serve as a conference table or an elegant, unorthodox space to have an intimate dinner party.
The design in the game room is a more masculine one, with darker tones and a rustically modern pool table. A wine cellar, customized with a sliding glass and steel door, houses the homeowners' collection of premier Crus. On the adjacent wall, framed album covers are hung to commemorate the homeowners' favorite music, giving the space a personal touch.
The floral pattern of the tile beautifully blends the black marble countertop with the cabinets framing the backsplash section. A stainless steel range hood hangs over the double oven set up with mounted sconces providing extra lighting in the nook.
When guests enter Cevicheria, they see large steel doors stamped with fish and birds, creating the first layer of the restaurant's ambiance. Then, upon entering the building, guests are greeted with the view of a majestic octopus hanging from the ceiling. These two details, along with the colors and textures in the space, make guests feel as if they are spending the day at the beach.
A glass door opens into this spacious walk in shower. The three remaining walls are covered in white subway tile for a bright and spacious feel. Small white and gray square tile flooring compliments the monochromatic design. A built in cubby and small corner bench create easy storage and use throughout the space.
Throughout the Noho Loft's design, the homeowners needed a way to make their small spaces look larger and feel more functional, so designers had custom fabricated steel doors and sliding paneling made to help with this. Since many of the doors are not fixed, they allow the homeowners to customize their space to fit their needs at the moment, and because the doors slide rather than swing, they take up less room in the design so the home has more functional floor space.
