View Slideshow

General Assembly handled the renovation of this New York City loft located in a Cast Iron building that was built in 1868. The Greenwich Village apartment is now divided into two areas, with half of it being the living area, which has a double-height ceiling. The other half houses the kitchen and sleeping areas.
