A concrete house may seem an odd choice for a family of four. But for Pedro Reyes, Carla Fernández and their two young children, there are few spaces sweeter than their sprawling Brutalist abode. At first glance, it’s a sea of gray. But a closer look and a half-hour’s conversation reveals its playful peculiarities – and its purpose.
When you live above Etsy’s London headquarters, you might feel some pressure to ensure your flat is up to the high standards of your neighbors. Luckily for Heather, one of her passions is interior design. She took the challenge head-on and decked out her spacious and eclectic London loft with carefully chosen pieces—this is distinctly not an off-the-shelf design job.
The Crosby street loft building is located on a cobblestone block in the Soho Cast Iron Historic District. Built in 1882, it was formerly a department store.. The renovation of a second floor loft retains and celebrates many of the original details, including generous, open spaces, 14 foot plus ceiling heights, Corinthian-style columns, and a continuous 120 foot exposed brick wall with integrated archways.
This loft is a great find: an area of 300 m², a huge skylight, the Eiffel girders, beams and wooden poles, exposed brick, and the icing on the loft, a freight elevator. Located in the heart of the historic center of Bagneux, France, this former biscuit factory may well have it all.
Let’s explore the rehabilitation of an old warehouse by the architects of the agency Sadie Snelson. In this loft, the concrete walls and ceilings are coated with pink tones that bring warmth to this industrial setting. A bold choice that works perfectly. Prior to the conversion, the Clapton Warehouse in East London was a dysfunctional space that was divided into several rooms each with minimal sunlight.
Vivid colours, bold text, vibrant graphics – this Colorful Paris Loft at Rue des Filles du Calvaire delivers a daring visual punch. Huge windows signal the space’s origins as a water mill, but in its latest incarnation it’s part home, part art installation: daring canvases in confident colour propel the property into the future.
Located in the heart of the Japanese capital, the unique Tokyo Loft was painted in white and refurbished to add to its phenomenal appeal. When the studio got to work on the project, the architects soon realized how the attic of the building with long, sloping ceilings and raw interior could be converted into a decorative space.
