Cool spaces: A Cabin in a Loft in Brooklyn
I have been looking around for accommodation in New York for when Shane and I plan to go visit later this year. I was looking in Williamsburg when I stumbled across this beautiful and very unusual loft apartment that belongs to Terri and Adam. They work and live in this space and I think it is damn spiffy.
- The cabins are located in a former textile factory building with exposed brick walls and large windows. Rather than building floor-to-ceiling walls to divide the apartment into two bedrooms, the pitched roof of the cabin and elevated floor of the treehouse maintain the openness and character of the loft while also allowing sunlight to fill the entire space. As a result, living in the space can feel like living outdoors, in a small community of two houses. Windows in the cabin and treehouse ventilate the rooms and offer views to the rest of the apartment. The large entrances to both cabins, set slightly back from the building’s windows, look out to the sky and down the street.
