Living with Books and Art by UNStudio

Dutch firm UNStudio have introduced curved walls and sweeping ceiling lights to this Manhattan loft to create a gallery, library and living space for an art collector.

The new walls, which meander through the long and wide loft, are used to hang art and display books on self-lit shelves.

18,000 LEDs sit behind light diffusers that span the ceiling and provide local and ambient light in variable shades.

The existing fenestration has been replaced with ceiling-height windows to maximise views across downtown Manhattan.

The curved walls are made of fibreglass reinforced with gypsum panels, while the floor has been finished with douglas-fir boards.

Living with Books and Art: a loft in New York, USA 2007-2010

” The UNStudio design for an existing loft located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan explores the interaction between a gallery and living space. The main walls in the loft flow through the space, and together with articulated ceilings create hybrid conditions in which exhibition areas merge into living areas ”
