Carroll Dunham #4

"Carroll Dunham and Laurie Simmons, the parents of prodigious millennial Lena Dunham, have sold their Tribeca loft at 16 Desbrosses St, #4S for $6.25 million. The 3,600-square-foot location for the award winning film, Tiny Furniture, was once a textile warehouse. In recent years, the bright, airy space, perfectly suited for artistic inspiration, was re-designed by architect David Bers who was also responsible for designing the couple’s other residence in Cornwall, CT. They also collaborated with interior designer Nick Dine, son of pop artist Jim Dine, and the result was an open, spacious live/work design prepared to accommodate any sudden bursts of inspiration.

The Dunhams bought the apartment in 2001 as part of a consortium of artists who banded together to buy the entire building for $7.9 million.
But the family didn't move into the house until 2004, instead living in a rental in Brooklyn Heights while it was renovated.

One part of the apartment is a duplex entirely for studio space.

Carroll Dunham uses the above space for work.

Another one of the home's many workspaces.

The layout the Dunham Simmons have chosen for this multi-level space included 2 bedrooms, an office, a studio, 2 full baths and 2 half baths. However, if the new resident prefers more space for visiting friends and relatives, the office and studio can easily be converted into 2 other bedrooms.

The apartment also definitely doesn’t suffer from a shortage of places to put things with a private storage room in the cellar — and let’s be honest, the Dunham Simmons clearly love their built-ins. The home features built-ins throughout bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, and dressing rooms in several types of wood, from walnut to cherry to poplar.
