Manhattan Lee Loft by Joel Sanders Architects

The Lee Loft is a duplex residence located in Manhattan and which was designed by Joel Sanders Architects . Furniture upholstered in menswear fabrics complements the mahogany-clad walls and built-ins.   While the design deploys materials associated with maleness, the Lee Loft is also concerned with permitting multiple domestic identities.

Mahogany stair treads fold vertically to create a louvered privacy screen and extend horizontally to form bookshelves. The kitchen island is treated as another dual-purpose element: it features a rotating work surface that functions as a counter, a dining table, or a desk.

It’s a modern place with a great location. All the rooms share almost the same design so overall it’s a consistent look. It’s obvious that the designers put a lot of work into this place. The attention to details is amazing. Furthermore, the décor is very well chosen and the pieces go very well together. There is a warm atmosphere all over this place. I really like different tones of red incorporated in the design, starting with the wooden floors and continuing with the furniture and the little details. It really looks like home. It looks like a very comfortable place where you can easily accommodate. Home sweet home.
