Housed in a 1903 NoHo factory, the Great Jones Loft keeps the integrity of the original space with meaningful updates. Coupling exposed brick with dark metal and oak pieces give the space an industrial presence, while a Carrara marble dining table adds a classic refinement. Dark rift and quartered wood floors run throughout the open interior creating a juxtaposition with the stark white walls and ceiling. A teak soaking tub is the centerpiece of the masterbathroom and provides a warm contrast to the hardware and mosaic marble tile. Sleeping quarters surround the updated kitchen and living space, allowing for an open interior meant for NYC entertaining.
Situated on a rural hillside, the Antsy Plum House is a mid-century haven in a historic Wiltshire village. Originally designed by David Levitt, the dramatic roof pitch mimics the steep slope it sits on. The home has been meticulously refurbished to keep its original 60’s charm with exposed brick and timber, complimented by modern furnishings and a clean white pallet. The first floor offers a kitchen with an open living space, while the second floor houses three bedrooms and an office. Floor to ceiling windows flood the interior with light and extensive views of the wooded bank.Most treehouses are built from wood, and use the tree for support. Instead, this Glass Tree House fully encloses a tree inside its walls. The Apple-like curved glass cylinder houses a multi-level structure, accessed by a spiral staircase around the outside. There’s a kitchen and bath on the ground floor, a living area above, a bedroom on the third level, and a fourth floor observation deck that provides 360-degree views of the surrounding forest, as well as the rare opportunity to view the top of the internal tree from up close. Obviously a concept, yet grounded just enough to conceivably get built.Photos:
