Roommates: Artist's Loft for Two

The New York Times 1.22.09

Would you live with a roommate? What if you shared a 4,600 square foot midtown loft that was renovated so you each had (tons) of private space? The New York Times shows us the live/work loft spaces of artists Roselyn Leibowitz and Catherine Redmond — friends who created a unique living arrangement after Catherine's Tribeca loft was uninhabitable after 9/11...

The women emphasize that their arrangement functions as a "supportive structure without losing one's individual sense of privacy"

5 Roselyn has a larger bedroom because she likes to draw and work on the bed.

Because the loft was gut-renovated with the help of architect Michael Zenreich, each woman was able to customize her space to her individual living style and working style. Check out the full article: Living Together: To Each Her Own and the slideshow.
