Old Caviar Warehouse Turned Into New York City Loft

If there’s any city that you might expect to find an old caviar and soap warehouse turned into a dazzling modern-day loft, it’s New York. But that still doesn’t lessen the beauty with which this apartment is now adorned.

Designed by architect Andrew Franz, this 1884 six-story building in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood still has its brick walls and 16-foot-high beamed ceilings, but now it also has new steel, glass, tile, and lacquer sections, along with a relocated mezzanine featuring a sunken interior court with a retractable glass roof that transitions to a green roof garden up above. Energy-efficient mechanical systems and appliances are used throughout the space, with plenty of locally sourced products in the mix as well, and the new roof terrace uses reclaimed bluestone pavers and native plant species that barely need any water to thrive.
