Upper West Side Duplex
Loci designed a new duplex by using the existing pre-war features (coved ceilings, herringbone floors) as a backdrop for the open layout of the lower floor and private living quarters on the upper floor. Custom furniture pieces were built from walnut, translucent ribbed glass, and stone; each of these pieces has formaldehyde-free fiberboard and a non-toxic lacquer finish. Natural bamboo cabinetry with honed stone countertops and stainless steel fixtures created a new, modern kitchen. In the master bathroom, the floating vanity was built from carbonized bamboo with a honed stone countertop and vessel sinks; the rest of the bathroom is finished with cleft stone panels, tinted plaster, and glass mosaic tile in the shower.
