KANEKO LOFT



LOCATION: OMAHA NEBRASKA

DATE: 2009

PROGRAM: LIVE/WORK LOFT

SIZE: 12,600 SF



This converted loft space is part of the Kaneko Complex in the Old Market District of downtown Omaha. The clients and their extensive art collection find a new home in the large expansive space within the old brick and concrete warehouse building. The sparse aesthetic of refurbished steel, brick, and concrete form the backdrop for cooking, entertaining, and introversion. The architectural interventions within the space are quite minimal in order to allow the extraordinary large scale space to take center stage. The scale of the space is contrasted by the precise articulation of programmatic activity areas such as cooking, dining, reading, bathing and sleeping.

CLIENT: Jun Kaneko & Ree Schonlau

DESIGN TEAM: Mark Mack, Jason Marshall, Andreas Gritschke, Matt Bean

ASSOCIATE ARCHITECT: Bill Stott (Architectural Offices, Omaha)

PHOTOGRAPHER: Takashi Hatekeyama
