The whitewashed New York apartment of Lowline founder James Ramsay has hit the market for $3.7m.
Tribeca’s 39 White Street dates back to the 1860s, and it’s been renovated several times during the last 150 years. Ramsay, of RAAD studio, stripped away the recent additions to the loft, revealing its original brick bones.
Texture heavy, the two-bedroom loft has soaring 11.5-ft ceilings with original tin plates, and exposed beams. Pale oak flooring spans across the 2,000 sq ft New York apartment.
The living room features a gas fireplace, and built-in walnut-and-steel shelving unit that runs along the back wall. In the dining room, there’s a custom honeycomb 300-bottle terracotta wine rack, while the chef-grade kitchen has been designed around a marble-topped island.
Ramsay shares the Tribeca apartment with Skylight founder Jennifer Blumin – who describes it as ‘warm modernism’ – and their family, and the Victorian Manhattan property has featured in a number of interior design publications.
Sadly the fossils, archaeological artefacts and artworks aren’t included in the sale of the home, which is listed via Tamir Shemesh and Candice Milano of Corcoran.
Ramsay launched the Lowline Lab last year in New York’s former Essex Street Market building as a test bed for his subterranean park scheme. Blumin meanwhile continues to pioneer the adaptive reuse of some of New York’s most iconic empty landmarks.
