APARTMENT, NEW YORK
Deborah Wilk -- Interior Design, 12/1/2007 12:00:00 AM
Cool elegance permeates a 4,000-square-foot loft by Arjun Desai and Katherine Chia. In the center of the sealed concrete floor, the open kitchen is defined on one side by a 24-foot-long stainless-steel counter, around which all manner of entertaining takes place, and on the other by cabinetry. Fronted by translucent glass sliding doors, the cabinets are built into a freestanding enclosure that also houses a bathroom and storage. A second enclosure conceals another bathroom, while the master bath is screened by acid-etched glass. All three bathrooms feature walls clad in white ceramic tile—with niches just right for a bar of soap, a loofah, or a rubber duck.
