16G is part of an exclusive group of lofts at the Chelsea Mercantile that has been completely redesigned and transformed into a modern masterpiece. What has been achieved is perfection on every level in all rooms. The style is modern yet restrained and its refinement is in the details. Here the selection of materials and technology culminates in architectural perfection.

This loft certainly benefits from its high floor position and it prewar designation. Ceilings are 11 feet so all rooms feel voluminous. There are eight oversized windows through which sunlight is evenly distributed and through which beautiful northern views can be enjoyed. The use of wide plank floors by LV Woods and custom-built doors that have been raised to ceiling height appear to accentuate the scale of all rooms . Sliding pocket doors were incorporated into the design to maximize usable space in each room. One of the architectural objectives was to substantially increase storage capacity and this was achieved by excavating unused space in the ceilings and walls, and cleverly repositioning existing closets. Storage is consistently abundant.The foyer, with its floating niche, elegantly conceals the open kitchen from the entrance and sets the right tone for the living and dinning spaces.

The well planned open kitchen is well appointed and visually stunning. The kitchen cabinets are by the Brazilian house Florense and are double hung to the ceiling. Appliances are top-of-the-line Miele, Wolf and Subzero. There is also a walk-in pantry/ laundry conveniently located next to the kitchen.

The luxe guest bathroom is clad in Pietra Piasentina Italian limestone and beautifully presents as an elegant powder room. There is a floating vanity, concealed storage, deep soaking bathtub and fixtures are Toto and Axor.

The master bathroom features Haisa Marble and porcelain floors, an automated Toto Neorest toilet, Dornbracht fixtures, oversized shower with sliding glass panels, a custom made vanity with integrated sinks and a linen closet that is substantial.

The master suite seamlessly combines practicality without sacrificing beautiful design. The walk-in closet has been reconfigured to include a dressing room and a separate shoe closet. Closet doors are floor-to-ceiling wood panels that create an stunning architectural statement.

The second bedroom is large enough for a king sized bed. There are custom built-in book cases and storage units that conceal as well punctuate the architectural narrative.
