Mercer Street Loft, New York | Deborah Berke Partners

SimplicityLove recently came across this stunning, minimal apartment in Soho, New York, renovated by Deborah Berke Partners

The flat is located in the New Museum Building at 158 Mercer St. in Soho, a prestigious, landmarked, full service pre-war condominium. Initially designed for french design guru and former editorial director of Interview magazine Fabien Baron, it was on the market and finally sold for about  $7.25m at the end of last year. 

Everything seems carefully executed, detailed in the most reductive manner possible, resulting in a spacious, light filled apartment with a minimized materials’ palette of substantial clarity and quality.
