Welcome to our gallery featuring the Bond Street Loft project by Axis Mundi Design!
This NoHo apartment, located in Manhattan, is in a landmarked circa 1870 building designed by Stephen Decatur Hatch and converted to lofts in 1987.
Before the current owners purchased it, it had been interestingly renovated by a rock musician.
The 3,400 square foot renovated loft features a living room, cozy family room, kitchen, dining, a sitting room, two bedrooms, and three and a half baths.
The new owners, a young couple, approached designers John Beckmann and Nick Messerlian of Axis Mundi with a collection of paintings, photography, and sculptures from emerging artists to incorporate into the design of the loft.
These pieces were accentuated with a neutral color palette and intermittent pops of bright color to reference various art pieces in the space. This was very successfully achieved throughout the vast space of the apartment.
In order to make the space feel more inviting and habitable, the designers used a combination of textures such as leather, linen, fur and warm woods to bring the size of the loft down to a more human scale.
Several key furniture pieces of the loft help with this goal, including the large sectionals and the massive 12-foot wooden dining table.
Photography by Durston Saylor and Mark Roskams stunningly shows off this masterpiece of an apartment. We hope that something here inspires you in your own home design projects.

Coat hooks supply a place to hang your coat as you enter into the loft. Just around the corner you can see into the kitchen and one of many contrast pillars supporting the space while also breaking it up visually. Concrete walls create a textural juxtaposition to the wood floors.
The kitchen is long and narrow, done up in a monochromatic color scheme with sleek, stainless steel accents. The wall are breaks up the texture of the rough concrete with a ridged and wrinkled appearance.
A 12-foot long dining table dominates the space between the kitchen and the living room. The color palette of the project was purposefully kept neutral to better showcase the owners collection of art — with pops of color, seen here in the chairs, that reference pieces of art found around the loft.
Bold and colorful artwork adorns the wall and acts as the focal point of the large space. Warm textures of wood and leather help to combat the grand scale of the loft, bringing it down to a more human scale.
This view shows off the glass spheres of the light fixture over the dining table. Beyond the dining room is the open doorway into the bedroom, and the first peak of the living room. The concrete wall is broken up by art and the inclusion of tall while pillars.
The large sectional takes up most of the space in the living room but keeps a low-profile thanks to the low back and long cushions. Subtle colors play in the artwork on the wall, mimicking the colors of the throw pillows on the sofa.
Bright colors and a bold, abstract sculpture liven up the space of the living room. Large windows line the outer walls and offer up a stunning view of the surrounding city. Turquoise and canary yellow accents create visual interest against the muted hues used in the rest of the space.
The living room opens directly into the library, which features another large sectional and built in shelves with a library-style rolling ladder to reach the top. Muted tones soften the space and make it more inviting and comfortable.
Plush fabrics and fur add to the inviting atmosphere of the room while the bright pop of sunflowers enhances the muted gold pillows. The windows allow plenty of light for reading or the shades can be lowered to enjoy a movie in this cozy spot.
The bedroom features bold colors to reflect the artwork chosen for the focal point of the room. Rich blues and bold reds set this room apart from the rest of the house while the neutral walls allows these colors pop even more.
The unique pendant lights suspended from the ceiling on either side of the bed are a juxtaposition to the glass spheres over the dining table and help balance out the verticals of the room. Even here, pops of accents colors add warm to the room.
The ensuite master bathroom features this stunning free-standing soaking tub as well as a separate showering room and a walk-in closet. The use of a brush metal accents walls cools down the warm tiles and highlights the white tub from the rest of the room.
This bathroom, attached to the guest bedroom, features a large tub and shower in the same glass enclosed space. A large vanity with unique shelving and a creative design, offers up plenty of space for guests to prepare for the day.
This powder room, just off the kitchen, is a bold contrast of black and white and even features one of the pillars used in the main living spaces of the house. The black accent wall makes quite a statement against the bright white of the counter.
