New York-based architect Andrea Leung has renovated a 1,600-sf historic Tribeca loft for herself, that’s located within a building dating back to 1864.

Accessed via a flight of lopsided stairs, the updated interior includes a narrow entryway that’s closed off from the rest of the interior by a black-framed glass door.

The entryway opens to the open plan dining area that’s been furnished with a custom brass and walnut table, credenza, and console, all of which were designed by the architect. Above the table is a Dot Atomium Chandelier by Lambert & Fils.

The dining room shares the open space with the living room and takes full advantage of the natural light from the multiple windows that line the walls.

Key to the design of the apartment, is a wall of floor-to-ceiling, black-framed glass that includes a combination of clear glass and mirrored panels. The wall allows the living and dining area to seem even larger, as well as reflect the natural light. It also includes the concealed doors of the bedroom, primary bath, and kitchen.
