Architecture Professors Transform 19th Century New York Building

Two architecture professors transform 19th century New York building into a wondrous loft. What happens when Beatriz Colomina, Director of the Architecture PhD program at Princeton University & Mark Wigley, Dean of Columbia University School of Architecture want a new place to call home?

With the help of designer Diane Lewis, this former typography building in Soho has become a dream home for the two professors.  The original cast iron columns and the parquet flooring have been preserved. Blended with contemporary floor to ceiling rotating doors and a period ornamental ceiling design. The white paint contrasts the stunning dark stained timber floor, ensuring it doesn’t become overpowering. Minimalist furniture perfectly compliments the overall layout, capping off this Soho home.
