Today we continue our three-part series of the Dwell at Met Lofts, which featured three custom-designed spaces by ASID Designers.
Lauri Howell, founder and principal of Lauri Howell Designs, approached her 718-square-foot loft with two goals in mind: use natural materials that emphasize the indoor-outdoor connection and provide plenty of clever design tricks that make the studio feel like a larger space. Lauri used furnishings to create distinct areas for each task: cooking, dining, lounging, working and sleeping. The key to the space design was a moveable partition wall build on castors that divided the sleeping area from the living space. It also created a separate office space, which works well for a telecommuter. By mounting the television to the partition wall, it could be used for the main dwelling area by day and turned around for viewing from the bed at night.
