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.
There’s no more familiar symbol of New York grit than the exposed rooftop water tank. In the chic stretches of the Upper East Side, though, the utilitarian tends to get dressed up, and prewar buildings typically have their tanks elegantly encased in towers that match the architecture below. This Penthouse in a Water Tower is such an example.
