The Flatiron Loft is a single floor unit, is framed on three sides by large windows, flooding the interiors with natural daylight and creating a unique atmosphere for a New York apartment where light and windows are cherished.

The design gut renovated the existing, which was a divided into small rooms, breaking through the space from front to back to create a new flow, with the program and uses defined by furnishings and interior built-ins, and sliding steel and glass partitions.

The owner, Sandy Marker, has a close family with 2 grown sons who visit often from across the Hudson River. Having recently lost her husband, Sandy embraced the design process as a way to heal her heart and soul and provide a focus and new meaning to her next phase in life. Her passion and interest combined with thread’s vision and attention to detail created an effortless and joyful process to the design, and interior selection.

A palate of warm neutrals, light wood tones, grey fabrics and pops of warm yellows and golds define the spaces and various functions throughout.

What was the brief?
After having lived in the apartment for close to thirty years it was time for a fresh start. Mrs. Marker had moved in with her husband in the late 90’s and raised a family, lived a class New York City life. Recently with the passing of her partner and husband, she was ready to create a new home and give a new focus to her life. The project was to gut renovate the space and bring a completely new vision of open, calm and light to all corners of the apartment.

How is the project unique?
While the project is a typical NYC loft building in the heart of the Flat Iron District, the program and client were unique. The client had recently experienced the death of her husband in an unexpected moment, and it was through the design process that she was able to heal and focus on her own life.

The power of design is real, and it can be used as a means to heal ones heart and soul. thread collective took this role very seriously and worked with the client closely to ensure a decision making process that allowed for exploration, and introspection. During the project, objects had a deep meaning and it brought a new awareness to how design and interiors have power to define a sense of place and to be transformational.
