The design concept is based on the nearly square perimeter shape of the apartment.  A black cube is placed, floating, in the floor plan, creating living space within and around the black volume. Additional volumes like the black granite kitchen island continue to define an open living space on the north side of the loft. The apartment design was influenced by the owners’ art collection and library. The black cubic volume accommodates both the library and vertical surfaces for some of the larger art works in their collection.
