Walter Schupfer and Gina Goldman’s loft in downtown Manhattan overlooks the site of the former World Trade Center. The couple behind a thriving photo agency revamped an industrial loft into a family home. Their home overlooks the rising of several new skyscrapers, but this doesn’t bother them at all. “We’re always mindful of that terrible tragedy,” Goldman says. “But, at the same time, we’re excited to be part of the rejuvenation of lower Manhattan.”
The 6,000-square-foot condominium is located in a 1913 industrial building that had been converted into lofts in the late 1990′s. What was minimalist space with white floating walls and gleaming dark floors, is now a warm family home. To make it a place where their children could play and make a mess without worrying about damage to the interior, they exchanged chrome for wood, stainless steel for marble, and paint for wallpaper.
The apartment has a light, airy feel to it with lovely open spaces. I really like the artwork & custom designed storage in the dining room.
In the dining room, a custom-made walnut table & vintage Gratz chairs; the cabinets hold a custom-designed wine-storage system.
