Architect Sam Trimble of Trimble Architecture designed this stunning minimalist loft in the Manhattan neighborhood of Tribeca to become the New York home of Saatchi & Saatchi CEO Kevin Roberts and his family.
“Nothing is Impossible”, the famous Saatchi & Saatchi company's motto is highly expressed in this apartment’s substantial simplicity and sensual detailing. The interior, inspired by archetypical tectonic caves, features floors and walls in slabs of limestone.
The unique atmosphere is completed with signature items from designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Charles Eames, together with works of art from artists Jenny Holzer, Yves Klein, James Turrell and Sean Landers.

Description from Trimble Architecture:
“Tribeca loft for Kevin Roberts, the CEO of Saatchi + Saatchi worldwide.
Inspired by a description found in an old Encyclopedia Britannica: "tectonic caves are formed by a mass movement of bedrock. The rocks separate along joints or fractures, and are pulled apart mechanically. The resulting cave has nearly planar walls with matching patterns on opposite sides. The ceiling is often a flat bed of rock that did not move or that moved along some different fracture. The floor of a tectonic cave consists of massive bedroock. Larger tectonic caves have a grid pattern that matches the pattern of the fractures or joints." - W.B. WH.”
