Currently owned by Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk, this SoHo pad occupies the second floor of a 120-year-old building and checks all the boxes when it comes to loft living: 16-foot-high ceilings, soaring windows, and exposed brick walls.

This chic SoHo loft recently hit the market as homeowner and Swedish native Elsa Hosk has decided to move on after six years. Hosk worked with New York City–based Alveary Architecture to renovate the entire apartment and bring the mezzanine-level bedroom up to code.

The renovation embraced century-old features including a row of six massive windows that illuminate the entire space. Other original details include 16-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls, and Corinthian columns.

Hosk, who purchased the apartment in 2014, spent two years working with Alveary Architecture to open up the main living area by pushing the kitchen and bedrooms to one end of the floor. "I had a blank canvas to start from, which was really exciting because I wanted to build something that really felt like me," she says in a recent profile by Architectural Digest.

The ensuing process was delayed for months as Alveary worked with city officials to approve a formerly un-permitted mezzanine level. The rebuilt upper portion of the apartment now houses a principal suite, with the kitchen and second bedroom tucked underneath. The result is an expansive living and dining area that Hosk decorated herself—finding furniture, artwork, and other designer furnishings by scouring vintage stores, auctions, and even Instagram.

Hosk's designer finds included a bouclé Bernhardt sectional that she spotted on Instagram, as well as a Mario Bellini modular sofa and a vintage credenza. A dining table by Ilse Crawford and a rug from Swedish designer Märta Måås-Fjetterström sit underneath oversized Isamu Noguchi lanterns. Danish-made, wide-planked hardwood floors run throughout the home.

The kitchen, which was relocated from the opposite end of the loft, comes with custom walnut cabinetry and a Carrara marble–topped island.

With a baby on the way, Hosk has decided to list the home with an asking price of $3,500,000. Among the selling points of the two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad is its location in the heart of SoHo's Cast Iron Historic District, along one of the neighborhood’s romantic cobblestone streets. The listing also includes a 525-square-foot terrace—a rare feature as far as NYC apartments go. Keep scrolling to see more.

A floating staircase leads up to the mezzanine level; a Phillip Arctander clam chair sits in the space underneath. The doorway to the right opens to a lower-level bedroom. 

A steel-framed glass wall overlooks the living area from the principal bedroom upstairs. 

The en-suite bathroom features a cast iron soaking tub and Vola fixtures.

66 Crosby Street, Apt. 2E, in New York, NY is currently listed for $3,500,000 by Adam D. Modlin, Carl Gambino, and Andrew Nierenberg of the Modlin Group.
