House of the Week: $5.95 million for a film studio that was converted into a jaw-dropping home
The Place: An enormous open-concept loft in an Annex building that was formerly a film studio.
Bragging Rights: Designed by artist Rose Lindzon with the help of Gordon Ridgely Architects, the space functions as both a home and a serene artist’s studio complete with natural light and a calming indoor fountain.
Big Selling Point: In its previous life as a film studio, the space was made completely soundproof. Disturbing your neighbours will be nearly impossible.
Possible Deal Breaker: The layout isn’t conventional, which means you may need to move your stuff around a few times before finding an arrangement that works.
