MINIMALISM: Exposed brick, large windows, and minimalist decor keeps this loft space open and light.
LARGE WINDOWS: You just cannot beat large factory windows as reminders of the building's history in a loft.
ROOM DIVIDERS: While lofts should be large open spaces, clever dividers like these repurposed windows are a great way to define different zones within the space.
The glass wall here is rather ingenious - it lets the view through remain, while blocking noise and odors from the kitchen from entering the sleeping/study space.
EXPOSED INFRASTRUCTURE: Lofts should have some raw, unfinished elements. For example, leaving pipes and conduits exposed is part of the look.
OPEN SPACE: Here, all of the raw elements of the loft have been covered up, but the open feeling and light remain.
It's typical to have your kitchen, study, living room, dining room and even sleeping area open to one another in a loft space.
HIGH CEILINGS: High ceilings are a must in a loft. It's kind of a trade off for sacrificing so many interior walls.
COMMUNITY: I love the communal space that the residents of this loft worked on together.
UNIFORM FLOORING: A loft should have the same flooring throughout. It keeps all of the different areas connected.
BALANCING HISTORY WITH MODERN FURNISHINGS: This is one of the most perfect blends of refined and raw I've seen. The place is full of elegant furnishings, appliances, and cabinets, yet the conduits and beams remain exposed. Everything is harmonious.
This is about as luxe as lofts get.
