Ignoring the conventions of loft living, Aniket Shahane and Asheshh Saheba created this Manhattan apartment to be open but flexible enough to create private spaces. The duo gutted the maze of rooms, leaving only key structural elements and service zones intact. The space is “very porous so you can always see windows and light coming in,” Shahane says. The living room, den, and kitchen—located to the east—benefit from the bedroom windows’ western light and views. Floating cabinetry defines the space and wood flooring adds warmth. One judge liked how “you simultaneously get light but you also get privacy.”
