What would you do for eighty linear feet of built-in cabinetry? The New York Times shows us the SoHo loft of Jeffrey and Desirée Greene — a modern and minimal space with a secret: tons of built in storage, hidden cabinetry and rooms with movable walls...
Designed by L.E.FT, the home features built in cabinets and under floor storage to hold Mr. Greene's vast collection of over 200 musical instruments and the stuff of life. The Zen appearance (preferred by Mrs. Greene) is helped along by a limited and neutral color palette, a Boffi kitchen with concrete countertops, a giant BDDW table and Patricia Urquiola furniture from Moroso.
The ultimate compromise is Mr. Greene's non-minimalist music room that has a movable wall on a track system. This room and the adjacent dressing room "can be enlarged or compressed as needed."
Don't you love the curled-corner pulls on all the built-ins?
