Flatiron Loft is a project designed by thread collective. A 2100sf loft in the heart of the Flat Iron District reconceives the loft as a place not just for young families or artists but for those in the golden years ready to experience the city from a new perspective. The 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.
