Libeskind Loft by
Alexander Gorlin Architects

This triangular loft takes full advantage of its location at the intersection of two Manhattan grids. Designed for Daniel Libeskind, master planner for the former site of the World Trade Center, the loft’s 23 windows face south and east, giving views to prominent New York towers, including the Woolworth Building and the Municipal Building. The plan ensures these views go unimpeded. Thus, the main living areas - kitchen, dining room, and living room are open, while access to the vistas continues through to the personal spaces. When required, privacy can be established in the bedroom and master bathroom by a variety of mechanisms.  A rotating aluminum door seals off the bedroom, and the glass-framed master bathroom has a retractable curtain.
