Live/Work: An Artist’s Dream Space


Objective: convert a 2700 sq-ft abandoned warehouse space into an artist’s loft for a Williamsburg pioneer. Mission accomplished for Ochs Design firm. They intentionally restored as much of the original bones of the space as was feasibly possible for their client, including keeping the original asphalt floor in the painting studio. The “platforms replace walls to define living space” allowing the paintings and artwork to dominate the interior. And the oh-so-romantic bed is something from the movies.

Who wants to relocate with me?

    Cate, this is absolutely beautiful. I feel like I could walk right in and be comfortable! I love that there was a wooden platform built for the living areas; it instantly warms it up from the studio space. And that dining table with the iron legs is to die for!
