Vibrant LivingWhen Leonardo Annecca moved to New York to open his studio, he also needed a place to live. This Manhattan loft offered the perfect opportunity to create living and work space within an exhibition gallery. Simplicity was the key. Leonardo is proud that with very little money he created a warm, soulful, versatile space that is difficult to achieve in a bare, minimalist space.
At the end of the gallery is a taller table with barstools, which is used for entertaining, dining and working. This bar divides the gallery space from the living space and also conceals a small-scale refrigerator. See-through curtains divide the space but don't block the light and flow of the space. They also hide functional units: a tiny office space, a closet/dressing area and a corner nook that holds a bed with rolling drawer storage underneath.
