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"1 Catherine Redmond's large, open workspace. • 2 Catherine's small bedroom. • 3 The floorplan shows the two spaces share a long hallway. • 4 Roselyn Leibowitz's living space. • 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.
