The view from our homes is a great consideration when building a house. Yes, that would be location, location, location! And if you are blessed with a good view, then make sure that your house design is taking advantage of those views because not all homes can get a wonderful view! Today, we are going to show you a loft apartment that considered the views of New York City as a living decor.
This High Loft family apartment could provide a play of urban light and views located in New York City, New York. The designers said, “Our clients were interested in a space they could re-shape to meet the needs of their family of four. Several aspects of the building were appealing to them – the building’s history, its distinctive cast iron structure, and the volume of space afforded by the apartment’s 13-foot high ceilings. The design prioritizes views of the city, light and connectedness between spaces over private, compartmentalized rooms”. The loft is contained in a historic building.
