A LOOK AT ONE OF I-BEAM’S LATEST PROJECTS

Mark’s/Caride Residence

The renovation of Melissa Marks and Vicente Caride’s loft is the result of a thorough collaboration. Melissa and Vicente are creative pro­fessionals who were very involved in the design process of their space.The architects and owners worked together to develop a plan that would remain open while creating order among a variety of domestic and professional activities. A series of sliding walls each weighing over 500 lbs serve as alternating studio and exhibition walls that reveal or conceal different areas (studio, office and living room) according to the time of day and who is using the space.
