Tribeca Apartment with Custom Stairs

Tribeca Apartment with Custom Stairs

Architect: Ben Krone of Gradient Design Studio
Location: Tribeca — New York, New York

This home in a former sugar warehouse in downtown Manhattan features custom storage cabinets and a bent-steel staircase designed by project architect Ben Krone. Though it is remarkably larger than the East Village Studio by JPDA, the spaces in this home are also largely defined by the custom storage and cabinetry.

Gradient Design Studio:

The residence at 79 Laight street is located within a historic landmarked sugar warehouse in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood. The modern interior plays of the dichotomy between old and new through the use of subtle curvatures in the surfaces that peal away to reveal warm materials and existing infrastructure behind. Fully integrated custom cabinetry hold a variety of programmatic elements including informal eating areas, several work stations, a wine bar, a library and a tv and entertainment area. The surfaces are made of thermoformed polished Corian over walnut infill. A forming mold for the surfaces are CNC routed MDF translated from digital files.

The stairs were designed by Ben Krone of Gradient Design Studio and fabricated by Caliper Studio — the company behind the Genetic Stairs.
