Posen Loft by Yoshihara McKee Architects

Yoshihara McKee Architects of New York and Tokyo have installed a bathroom and kitchen either side of a freestanding wall in a New York loft apartment.

The bathroom has a glazed ceiling and its walls fall short of the space's double height ceiling to retain the loft's character.

The new wall shared between the kitchen and bathroom has a glazed panel that lines up with an existing window.

Here's some more from the architects:


Designed by NYC-based Yoshihara McKee Architects, this loft is an art studio and residence for parents of a well-known fashion designer. Posen Loft by Yoshihara McKee Architects

The existing kitchen and bathroom were fully demolished.

In order to minimize the impact to the existing living room, a new kitchen wall and bathroom wall was built, that does not reach the loft ceiling.

This establishes the new addition as an object and opens into the living room.

As a result, the original spaciousness of the loft is restored.

A glass ceiling above the bathroom and a window through the new kitchen were designed in close proximity to the front of the exterior window.

    Nice practical combination of services. Seems a waste of glass though, and then you have to go dust it.

    A beautiful place. Simple solutions with great results.
