This 4,000 square foot classic loft space tries to maintain the openness, utilitarian and industrial language of its raw brick, wood, and steel elements exposed.
The architects divided the various environments using free volumes instead of the conventional divisions floor to ceiling, thus creating an intriguing geography of materials, heights, light and shadow.
The wooden structural beams are lost through the free volumes. All woodwork is mahogany manufactured in Argentina and exported to NY in parts for easy assembly on site.
In the master bedroom is used again open space giving the industry its own bathroom and shower volumetric identity. The shower itself is circumscribed by a stone wall of 2.30 m in height and the perimeter wall of brick. The kitchen cabinets are designed in black steel and translucent plexiglass. The eco-friendly Loft Fireplaces alcohol use with and without ventilation.

Remove yourself from the modern world with an escape to a medieval watchtower overlooking the Carpini valley in Umbria, Italy.

This loft is a converted stable in Trastevere in Rome, the result of a project by Roman architects MdAA. Trastevere was full of such stables until the beginning of 1900’s. Large spaces, developed especially vertically, whose dimensions were obviously dictated by those of the horses and carts.
