Coveted Crib: A Butter Warehouse Turned Tribeca Loft

I lived in a loft in my early 20s before settling into more traditional houses. And while I thought I was happy with my bungalow life, I'm now experiencing a serious case of loft lust.
This Tribeca loft, designed by New York firm Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects, was carved out of a converted butter warehouse. IKBA decided to keep nearly the entire area open, leaving the home with dramatically voluminous interior spaces. Exposed brick peeks out from behind sections of white walls, and imposing black steel beams remind visitors of this space's industrial roots.

Sustainable bamboo graces the floors, and matching bamboo cabinetry was designed for a streamlined, modern look. Another cool feature? Polycarbonate screens, which can be opened or shut to conceal service areas.

The 21-year-old firm IKBA has received numerous awards over the past two decades, including the New York Chapter AIA Honor Award. The firm has also been featured among Architectural Digest's "AD100 Designers and Architects" for the past five publications.


If you love the look of this loft, enjoy more beautiful designs with Ike Kligerman Barkley's book Houses, which was published earlier this year.
