For its latest project, Turrett Collaborative Architects made the most of a small loft in New York City, turning it into a modern living space with a focus on sustainability.
According to Inhabitat, the 520-square-foot space was made more inviting with open riser stairs, movable panels, and open shelves. This allows light to permeate the loft while still delineating specific spaces. Multi-story windows facilitate that, and lessen the need for artificial lighting.
However, this loft is about more than just clever design. The wood flooring is FSC certified, while the bathroom features tiles made from recycled glass. Everything else, from plumbing fixtures and appliances to paints and finishes, was also chosen with sustainability in mind.
