The California Closets showroom is located in New York vibrant Tribeca, an acronymn for “Triangle Below Canal”. The neighborhood is composed of early 20th century industrial warehouse buildings, with commercial retail stores below, and loft-like artist/residential spaces above. With cobblestone streets and unique urban scales, Tribeca is going through a revitalization after the events of 9/11.
The program calls for demonstrating how California Closet’s new product line can be tailored towards Tribeca’s specific residential requirements- from the compressed rooms of recent apartment construction, to the expansiveness of converted loft in warehouse spaces. The design strategy is to insert various scale geometric volumes within the given building envelope, showcasing California Closets products in a museum like setting. Three delicate cubical closet pavilions are located at the ground level’s perimeter, while the central glass/steel staircase leading up to the mezzanine punctuates the two story cylindrical volume, capped by a circular chandelier with vertical lighting tubes with mirroring circular stone tile below. The mezzanine level showcases the California Closets’ intimate bedroom furnishings, and a series of floating walls/intersecting floors provide continuous spatial overflow while providing an overlook of closet pavilions below. A separate rear staircase leads to the office/design studio in the basement.
The precise construction & careful detailing further enhance the loft-like openness. Standard gypsum wall construction is combined with steel/glass staircase & wall openings, while subdued wood/stone/carpet color pallette creates a tranquil spatial atmosphere. As the natural sunlight engages the showroom activities during the daytime, at night time the mahogany chandelier cast a spherical warm glow over the pavilions, showcasing California Closets for chic New Yorkers passing by, and acting as a reference point for the bustling Tribeca neighborhood.
