This open loft apartment is the building’s largest suite. The 15-foot high ceilings are made of exposed brick dating back to the building’s historic origin.
The main floor offers a large living space with a re-upholstered antique sofa and two arm chairs. The coffee table is a rare antique solid iron storage chest and a massive Louis XVI’s style Claudio Alburnoz crystal glass chandelier adorns the space. Providing extra reading light is a stainless steel vintage floor lamp beside the couch. The entrance door to the apartment is accompanied by a marble topped antique hall stand.
The open American style fully equipped kitchen is separated from the living area by a breakfast bar constructed from an antique carpenters bench with a stainless steel top and three bar stools.
In the dining area a modern round table with seating for four is illuminated by vintage wall lamps and a large Louis XVI mirror.
Hand woven scatter rugs from the Northern province of Salta adorn the original refinished hardwood floors.
The main floor bedroom is separated from the living space by an opaque glass room divider with double doors and contains a king sized bed. Floor to ceiling windows of triple paned glass overlooking Junin Street lead to a small balcony with tabletop and two wrought iron chairs. The oversized antique British armoir with inlaid wood trim has a full size oval mirror inset on the door. Two Louis XVI bedside tables with onyx tops complement the wardrobe.
The full bathroom with shower stall includes a large mirror and modern fixtures.
An iron and wood staircase leads to the upstairs loft sleeping area, which has a queen sized bed and is open to the living room and kitchen. The polished cement floor and antique furnishings provide a warm atmosphere to these sleeping quarters.
Wall art by Argentine artist Luciana Vernet completes this extraordinary two-bedroom loft.
