This Bushwick warehouse conversion is as versatile as it is vast.
Set over 6,000 sq ft, the converted factory in Brooklyn has earned comparisons to a Swiss Army knife for its multitude of spaces and functions.
Its current owners, artist Haavard Homstvedt and interior designer Stine Christiansen Homstvedt, restored the building and installed a 4,000 sq ft studio atelier on the ground floor for them to work in.
Twelve-ft-tall ceilings and skylight windows give the open-plan space a cavernous feeling, flooding it with natural light (ideal for painting).
Meanwhile the upper floor has been turned into a three-bedroom, industrial-style apartment. The Homstvedts retained the building’s 14-ft beamed ceilings, which are paired with reclaimed wood and concrete floors.
As you’d expect from a warehouse loft, exposed brickwork is in abundance, as well as large windows, and a Minimalist colour scheme.
The open-plan living room features folding, concertina-style glass doors that open onto a split-level terrace, overlooking the surrounding Brooklyn neighbourhood.
Ideal as a live/work space and with plenty of room for a business on the ground floor, the property on Menahan Street is available via Corcoran Group for $3.5m.
