    Default A Manhattan loft renovation

    Before “We inserted a loft into the irregular configuration of a century-old building,” architect Frederick Biehle says of the two-story New York apartment he and his partner, Erika Hinrichs, renovated for Kevin Connors.



    After. A new skylight caps the double-height entrance hall. The stair, which was moved and rebuilt in steel with ipe treads, rises past walls stripped down to the original masonry.


    Before. The kitchen



    After. All of the exposed bricks were painted and glazed in warmer colors by Biehle’s sister Nora. He designed the cabinets. Viking range and hood. Sub-Zero refrigerator.


    Before. “It’s the most public room on the second floor,” Biehle says of the library, which is next to a guest room.



    After. The architects retained the fireplace but tore out the old flooring, replacing it with polished ipe. Hinrichs designed the staggered mahogany bookcase.



    Glass-mosaic tiles add sheen in the bath. At rear is a whirlpool tub.



    “The master bedroom is a sanctuary,” says Hinrichs. An existing circular stair leads to the rooftop greenhouse.The platform bed and doors, stained to match the floor, are Hinrichs’s design.

    I can't believe they ripped up perfectly good parquet floors for some laminate bullshit.

    parquet is something good now?

    Only the cheapest apartments in this city have fucking parquet floors.

    That doesn't look like laminate, it looks like fitted hardwood..

    The bathroom has too much tile, and there's a lot of brick. But overall, it's much better.

    the parquet floors were nothing special. they were the cheap variety in that exact same pattern that you find in lots of flats. the new floors are beautiful and i agree with grimm, they look like hardwood, not laminte.
    i LOVE how they brought back the original brick walls and the actual space is phenomenal. i would kill for that place. but the decorating isn't quite to my taste. the furniture and overall look are kind of generic. and what little artwork there is looks like it came from a chain hotel lobby.
