A STUNNING HOME IN A CONVERTED JEWISH SCHOOL IN NYC

nyloft4

An old Jewish school in New York has been converted into a single family townhouse with an art gallery on the ground floor. Labo Design Studio has used as much of the old structure as possible in the design of the new building. The existing three floors were enlarged with the addition of a volume in the rear of the building connected to the main body through three symmetrical openings and a partial floor on the top projecting onto the two story high living area of the third floor. The spatial arrangement is reminiscent of a loft, where the living area is organized in the front and the bedrooms and technical spaces in the back. The vibrant color of the furnishing contrast with the monochromatic palette of the building materials.
