Andrea Leung has designed Tribeca Loft in New York City, United States.
This project was focused on the design of an apartment that was "minimal, thoughtful, elegant, and exacting." It features well-proportioned, taut spaces ordered by grids and clean lines, yet there are also playful, idiosyncratic details that offset and complement the project's initial rigour.
When designing her own home in New York's historic TriBeCa neighbourhood, architect Andrea Leung drew upon her childhood memories of wandering through the secret rooms of her grandmother's Vancouver penthouse.
Playing with surprise and reflection to create her own architecturally-scaled cabinet of curiosities, Leung aimed to capture the sense of wonder that comes from exploration and discovery.
The loft unfolds and reveals itself slowly – it wows you initially with its grandeur and capitalises on your curiosity, beckoning you to discover a more intimate immensity of private and unexpected spaces behind a wall of mirror and glass.
