Tribeca is a family-friendly neighborhood in Lower Manhattan-New York City, with lovely parks and superb views of the Hudson River. In these surroundings, architect Andrew Franz turned a 19th century Manhattan soap factory into a beautiful loft apartment – the Tribeca Loft.
Famous for his nature-inspired designs, Franz has managed to create the feeling of being outdoors while also maintaining as much of the original structure as possible. Modern clean lines and open spaces combine cleverly with rustic wooden columns and raw brick walls. The home features an open floor plan, splendid 16 feet tall wooden beams and exposed brick walls, handmade tiles, and mid-century antique furnishings. The center of the living room is taken by a magnificent plant-filled solarium with glass walls, streaming sunlight throughout the whole space and providing aerial views of the home’s siting area. From the solarium inhabitants can follow the wooden steps up to an extensive roof garden with spectacular views of the surrounding city. The price that was paid for the Tribeca Loft is unknown to us, but it’s safe to assume some Big numbers were involved.
