“This project is an interpretation of a singular, private, yet highly glamorized domestic typology: the urban bachelor pad. The original existing 3000 SF loft was, quite simply, a ‘developer special’ when we were brought in to transform it into the consummate twenty-first century bachelor pad. While located within one of the most sought-after residential loft buildings in Tribeca, the residential space had serious issues: most significantly, there were windows at only one end of the 75’ long space, meaning natural light had no way of reaching the northern half of the interior. Ironically, that was what attracted this client, a very young and very successful Wall Street commodities trader, to the property: he wanted to create an entirely internal domestic landscape that turned inward, away from the city, the outside world, and specifically the stresses of the world of Wall Street finance.”
“As for your product – Screen Goo – specifically, these are actual photos of the finished project. We decided to paint the entire wall so that when the projector was off, there was no evidence of a screen or projector. The screen looks and works great. I am sure that we will use it again next time we have a project with a projector TV.”
“As the description mentioned, we commissioned a video artist to make a piece especially for this project. Across from the screen wall is the room’s only window. The video piece is the outline of the same window with the sunrise-sunset that was videotaped in Joshua Tree National Park, California.” said Paulo Flores of Architecture In Formation (AIF).
The projector used is an 8130 Planar with a Z100 lens.
