Many perceive loft style literally, try to fill such spaces with rough brutal furniture and decor items. But in this Los Angeles loft, architects of Marmol Radziner decided to play with opposing styles and textures. Wall decoration, open communications, rough materials – the basis of interiors here is the classical industrial. At the same time, furniture items are more refined and elegant, made of trendy expensive materials. We must say this contrast between completely different design elements looks awesome!
This hotel in the German town of Offenburg has a very symbolic name – Liberty. The thing is that the hotel is located in a unique building of the former prison, so the special memories for each guest are guaranteed. Loft style decor is perhaps the best choice for such a place: brick walls, open space foyer, industrial decor elements very well fit into the overall concept. Could you stay here for some days?
Another great example of a successful reconstruction of old non-residential premises. The house was built in the distant 1902 and was intended as a warehouse for a local textile factory, but recently stood abandoned. As it often happens, it is after the conversions of such kind of properties that unique living spaces are born. Now it is a stylish modern loft with spacious and bright rooms, high ceilings and two cozy private gardens. Is not it great!
Look at the gorgeous high windows in the living room of this one-bedroom apartment in Sweden! The fact is that the home is located in the building of the former technical Institute. Just imagine, not so long ago in these walls lectures for students were held, and now this is a unique and very stylish modern accommodation in the sought-after district of Stockholm. Great design!
The owner of this bachelor loft in the center of Washington, Will began the career of a real estate developer right after college and very soon was able to achieve some significant success. His company specializes in buying old buildings and their further reconstruction with the purpose of selling, and it is in one of these buildings that his new apartment is located. We are talking about a magnificent masculine loft in a former automobile service station with high ceilings, open pipes, and huge windows. A real dream for a young and single guy!
We have already seen here many different interesting buildings converted into homes, but a church is really something different. In Melbourne, an abandoned 1890-year church was recently converted into a very bright contemporary residence and now it is put up for sale for $ 1.5 million. The main architectural elements that remind of home’s past are the gorgeous arched doors and windows, thanks to which it has its own unique character. What do you think of it? Could you live here? :)
A few years ago it was an old farm consisting of a cowshed, storage and a small master’s house between them. But the new owners, who recently bought it, demolished the internal partitions and combined all the buildings into one space in order to make comfortable and stylish modern home. The main feature of this reconstruction is the original wooden beams, despite their aged and shabby condition. Great transformation!
The living room in this modern apartment in Stockholm resembles an auditorium – the ceiling height of more than 4 meters, open space and large windows are provoking such thoughts. Since new housing built nowadays usually do not have such characteristics, it’s easy to guess that the loft is located in a former industrial building, or to be more exact – an old factory. The designer task was to create a feeling of a life in one of the New York skyscrapers. Great project!
“To spend the night in a mine” – 100 years ago this phrase would make everyone confused due to not the most pleasant associations. But now the time has changed, as, for example, the building of one old engine house in Cornwall was recently converted to a unique romantic escape, which is now for rent. Guests here get complete privacy, views of the endless expanses of one of the most beautiful regions of England and such cozy and timeless interiors. Pure beauty!
Despite the rapid development of modern technologies and new technical construction possibilities, people still continue to move from the city to the province and restore old houses. This farmhouse is almost 300 years old, but one Swedish family found it attractive to make it their country home, and lovingly repaired it. At the same time, the new owners tried to preserve the spirit of the past as much as possible, adding only a couple of modern interior pieces. Isn’t it beautiful?
