Artist and architect Maya Lin, best known for her design of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., has just purchased a sprawling loft unit at 35 Bond Street in Noho, according to city records. Lin paid $4.5 million for the 3,260-square-foot space, which remains extremely raw, making for the perfect blank canvas workspace or renovation project for the multi-disciplinary creative who has also been known to dabble in interior design.
Overlooking Bond Street, Lin’s new home boasts 11-foot ceilings, ample south- and east-facing windows, and is soaked in light. There are also three sizable bedrooms and a key-lock elevator that opens directly onto the full floor loft.
Though the space is most definitely in need of a polish, it does have plenty of charm, including four steel columns and the original tin ceilings throughout (the loft was last put on the market 30 years ago). If you want to see its true potential, look no further than Lin’s upstairs neighbor who recently listed a very similar space for sale.
