Architecture Wednesday: Tribeca Loft Reno

What do you do with a 130-year-old soap factory? Well, if you have the money, and you’re in La Grande Apple, you take that space and make it into a fabulous home.

So now, the top floor and the roof of that old warehouse are living life anew as a warm and welcoming residence with an expansive entertaining area, what looks almost like a floating greenhouse, and a huge rooftop terrace with views to die for.

The residence is part of the old warehouse mezzanine, with a sunken interior court and a retractable glass roof that connects to the planted green roof garden above.

It’s hip and funky and retro and industrial and green and view-worthy and fabulous.

" What do you do with a 130-year-old soap factory? " I was going to say drop the soap! I absolutely love this repurposed space!!!!! My favorites here...the dinningroom and the staircase with the stunning glass enclosed greenhouse. Staircases are very important for that all too important "entrance"

That's what I call a loft. Love the fiddle leaf fig.
