Architectural Interiors / Merit
Given a raw space of exposed masonry and timber framing, John Hubert, AIA, decided to leave well enough alone—mostly. The space—in the former and aptly named Triangle Theater—was challenging in its shape but possessed 11-foot ceilings and abundant natural light.
To preserve the loft's felicitous openness, the architect carefully inserted freestanding elements to differentiate functional zones. He painted the ceilings white for added brightness but dropped their height over the new kitchen/gathering area to “better define the space.” And a new elevated “sleeping box” plays with the experience of solid and void.
The judges praised the architect's restraint and the “beautiful job” he did with the plan.
