Denver Flour Mill Loft by Robb Studio

An old flour mill was converted into a fascinating industrial style loft by architect Robb Studio in conjunction with Studio Gild, located in Denver, Colorado. The building was built in the 1920s, dilapidated and abandoned, the building was repurposed in 2000, converted into lofts. Originally the client who owns this Denver Flour Mill Loft was just looking to make a few updates on their 3,000 square foot home, such as cabinet hardware and an enhanced connection with the laundry and guest bath.

Yet, in the end, made the decision to give the loft a complete modern transformation, creating a striking visual aesthetic with open spaces for entertaining that the homeowners could enjoy for years to come. Greater functionality, clean lines and an enhanced material palette are just some of the details that were improved.


The kitchen features custom stained oak cabinetry and White Macauba quartzite countertops. The upper cabinets are covered with perforated metal panels. The oven, steam oven, cooktop, and warming drawer are Gaggenau. The refrigerator is Sub-Zero. The barstools are from Holly Hunt.


The 3,000-square-foot home is an open-plan space designed for entertaining.


The fireplace is located at the original chimney stack of the building. Robb Studio created a sculptural fireplace using exposed concrete, steel, and Shou-sugi-ban wood for the hearth seat.


A SHY 04 pendant light from Bec Brittain adorns the master bath. The custom vanity is made from oak charred with Shou sugi ban. The fixtures are Grohe.

Chicago-based STUDIO GILD is the compelling story of three talented designers — Melissa Benham, Jennie Bishop and Kristen Ekeland — who have joined forces to create a fresh and approachable interior design firm. Founded in January 2014 the collective draws from its principals’ experience in residential, hospitality, retail, commercial and graphic design. Taking inspiration from fashion, art and architecture, Studio Gild infuses each project with whimsy and sophisticated style.
