The Lincoln Center neighborhood is composed of high rise residential and commercial buildings, along with shops and restaurants. The investment banker client requested a comforting environment and a resting place from her high pressure profession.
After studying the existing cube like volume and the client's program requirements, the loft is divided into eight quadrants- two layers of four quadrant squares laid on top of each other. The "Resting" realm, which is composed of Living room and Bedroom, shall be two layers of one quadrant each. The "Service" realm, which is composed of Kitchen, Closet Hall/Bath, shall be the lower quadrant each, while the mezzanine loft space occupies the upper two quadrants. The staircase at Entry not only connects the two floors, but it also serves as a screen between Entry and Kitchen, since the stair treads transform into open shelves serving the Kitchen.
