The Amazing Rooftop Loft In New York That Will Make Your Own Home Look Like Crap

Rangr Studio is the creative team responsible for this extraordinary loft renovation on Broadway in New York.  Here’s some info from the architect that I got from Home DSGN:

“The renovation of this full floor & roof space created the illusion of one large loft space while integrating a large Living room, kitchen & dining areas, office, two separate bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, sauna, and dressing rooms. Using flush door panels and clerestory glass, the design allows the entire arched ceiling to be visible and allows all 28 windows to be apparent from every space in the apartment. A steel and wood stair allows access to the roof, with roof top hot-tub, outdoor fireplace, kitchen and lounge areas. The steps floats between a single stringer and pencil thin steel rods that support the steps and handrail, and which also form a ethereal screen between the public and more private areas of the loft. The layout of both the roof and the interior spaces were optimized to dramatize views across the rivers to New Jersey and Long.”

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness was dead wrong.  This space would make me just about the perkiest boy in all of Manhattan, if not the world.  The pangs of jealousy I get from looking at these photos is almost too much to bare. “Oh, the humanity!”
