The space for this project was a 900 sq.ft. flat located in a 1958 mid-century modern inspired apartment building in midtown Phoenix. The principal of a landscape architecture firm wanted an open loft space for a bachelor apartment and entertaining. Realizing its potential, the client bought the space from the original owner. Over the years several questionable renovations had been made. The space had been subdivided into smaller rooms and the ceiling had been lowered.
The apartment was gutted to create an open floor plan and the ceiling was also opened up to expose the concrete barrel vaulted structure. The challenge was then creating a design that did not compete with the strong architectural features but one that could simultaneously complement the envelope while still standing out.
The design solution for the open concept loft was centered around the kitchen and bar area as the main entertaining space. In the kitchen, a linear architectural feature defines the space and contrasts with the curvature of the concrete structure. The design of the kitchen takes full advantage of the views of midtown Phoenix and the natural light provided by two large windows on the opposite wall. Stilux cabinets, by NY Loft, in white-oak with stainless steel details were chosen in conjunction with Wolf, Sub-Zero, and Asko appliances. Beyond the kitchen, the project also included a full design of the flat’s social, private and auxiliary spaces
