After seeing the sheep-in-a-townhouse on display last year, we know better than to neglect the Inside Tribeca Loft Tour ever again. Curbed photog Will Femia took a walk through three of the 10+ properties to be featured on this year's tour, which will take place Sunday, October 16. The proceeds from the $50 tickets ($55 when bought day-of) go toward the upkeep of Duane Park. No sheep this year, but here's a bit of publicitybabble about what is on offer:
This year’s line-up of more than 10 lofts displays a wide variety of tastes and architecture with distinctive elements. They include an apartment that features a boxes-within-boxes architectural style, making up four bedrooms, each in a separate windowed box, so that the modern Danish furniture appears suspended in mid-air.
Another apartment on view featured in Interior Design magazine was transformed from a raw asymmetrical space with exposed ducts and wires into a balanced, yin-yang centered living space by award-winning architect David Piscuskas of 1100 architect. This space highlights an extensive art collection with pieces from such well-known artists as Keith Haring, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, as well as a number of local Tribeca artists. A beautiful first-floor loft in the former New York Egg Auction Building, facing Duane Park, serves as store-front gallery, studio, and home. The gallery has ethereal paintings by the artist- owner of his blond muse. Take a full look in the gallery above.
