A very unique loft has been constructed in the heart of New York, Manhattan. The owners have collected old used petroleum trailer tanks and created a number of capsules – living spaces that were hung in the height and comprise two bedrooms completely hidden, providing a maximum of privacy. Doors with hydraulic pistons allow to close the bedrooms. Vertically positioned tanks house two bathrooms. Bedrooms and bathrooms are accessible by a fire escape ladders and a metal grating catwalk.
The openings on the gratings were filled with a clear resin which makes walking on it very comfortable. To see this Manhattan loft is a very futuristic experience. One feels like being in a sci-fi movie. The overall, industrial atmosphere is completed by the installations that are not hidden in the wall but visible on the outside.
