located inside a former new york die casting factory, SABO project has completely renovated a brooklyn loft that was originally constructed in 1913. after a 1980’s residential conversion, the building’s concrete columns and ceilings were concealed, however the subsequent removal of these partitions has dramatically expanded the space, restoring the original structure’s high roofline.

under the reclaimed ceiling, a new datum line is defined by the height of a series of insertions: custom cabinets, a walk-in closet, glass enclosures and a new mezzanine level. the vertical combination of opacities and transparencies manages privacy while bringing daylight to each area of the design.

brilliant white panels contrast the exposed concrete, with a bespoke collection of wooden containers stretching from the kitchen into the bedrooms; integrating stairs, display shelving and a home office.

 

the bathroom is designed around a diamond shaped ceramic tile that determines all dimensions within the apartment. nine shades of three different colors are combined to create bold graphic patterns and gradients that wrap around the space.
