The Collector’s Loft project by UNStudio is a stunning example of innovative design and use of materials.
The project involves the renovation of an existing loft located in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, which was transformed into a luxurious living and studio space for an art collector. This project has received critical acclaim and won the IALD Award of Merit during the 28th International Lighting Design Awards.
One of the standout features of this project is the use of compound curved GFRG (Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum) surfaces. These surfaces were used to create a dramatic appearance in the loft/studio, which adds to the overall aesthetic and makes it stand out from other projects in the area.
The Collector’s Loft project involved the expertise of Formglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of molded architectural product solutions. Formglas has a long history of providing high-quality products and services to architects, designers, Fortune 1000 corporations, and contractors. They are known for their expertise in producing custom-made architectural products that meet the unique needs of each client.
The use of compound curved GFRG surfaces in the Collector’s Loft project showcases the versatility and durability of this material. GFRG is a lightweight, high-strength material that can be molded into any shape or size, making it an ideal choice for complex designs. GFRG surfaces also have excellent fire resistance and are environmentally friendly, making them a sustainable choice for any project.
The Collector’s Loft project by UNStudio is an excellent example of innovative design and the use of high-quality materials. The use of compound curved GFRG surfaces and the expertise of Formglas have helped to create a truly unique and striking living and studio space for an art collector.
