Loft Peeping: Dietz Lantern Building

Look what popped up on Remodelista: a Tribeca loft by local designers SchappacherWhite. The highlights:
• The clients are a “young family from New Zealand.”
• “‘I always put a dark wall in every project, they add so much depth to any room,’ says Rhea White. The small guest room doubles as a playroom when the grandparents aren’t visiting from New Zealand; a Murphy bed is concealed behind the chalkboard wall.” That’s two Murphy beds in a row.
• The sliding door was “modeled after classic loft doors” and created by Gunnar Design; Marsia Holzer built the floating walnut headboard.
•”‘One thing that we really worked hard to do in the kitchen and with all the rest of the cabinetry is to frame them, so they became objects in themselves,’ says Schappacher. ‘We didn’t want them to be big huge built-ins, in order to retain the open feeling of the loft.'” Built-ins is one of those words that gives you tingles…. The cabinetmaker and general contractor was ZT Maximum Construction (917-407-8547).
