This large artist loft in Brooklyn had 5 bedrooms that were all in need of attention – drywall was never finished, spray foam was everywhere, and second floor rooms only had plywood subfloors. I worked to create a clean, nicely designed room that could function as a guest room or be rentable. Despite the challenges of this raw space, the final design feels spacious and comfortable.

The finished space feels open and airy. There's plenty of room to work at the long desk, the closet space has ample room to add a small dresser as well as hang clothes, custom shelving provides added storage. The bed frame was also custom-built to allow enough room for extra storage to be slid below if needed.
Working with a small footprint, I worked to create a room that had all the necessities, but still felt spacious. The main focus was on building some custom furniture pieces that were proportional to the space, such as the long desk that doubles as a nightstand, as well as the custom closet space.
This bedroom felt dingy and unfinished. Drywall was hung poorly, paint was flaking, spray foam was used everywhere, and there was only plywood subfloors. This room felt cramped and small.
What I Did:
Drywalled, Spackled, Sanded, and Sound-Dampened Ceiling.
