The Church House?


DOS Architects have transformed the top two floors of Westbourne Grove Church into a contemporary loft apartment.  Located in Notting Hill, London, England, the Victorian church was originally built in 1853. Traditional architectural elements such as arched windows have been preserved.  The open plan of this 400 square meter (4,305 sq. ft.) modern loft with double height allows transparency. A glass staircase connects the two floors.

The aim of this project was to meet the functionally separate domestic requirements of the owner in a space that would feel completely open and uninterrupted. After the existing space was cleared two programmed sculptural elements were inserted into this multi-sided ‘spine’ that moves from one end of the loft to the other and  also a solid form that contains the necessarily enclosed bath and laundry areas. The spine houses everyday domestic components like storage, dresser drawers, kitchen cabinets, etc., while navigating the subtle boundaries between the entry, sleeping, kitchen and main living areas. The solid form is carved away using steel and walnut doors and panels to reveal points of access to the bath and laundry room. These impressions on the otherwise blank plaster walls of the solid echo the materials and proportions of the more articulated spine. The material character of these elements like blackened steel, painted and walnut veneered casework, black granite and translucent glazing was selected to complement and showcase the existing doug-fir columns, beams and ceiling without overpowering the space.

With a total of 1,937 square feet of living space, (590 sqm), the Florence-based studio q-bic had a lot to do with this 19th century industrial roof. And yet what has been lead was minimalist design, and all open loft to enjoy warmness. Besides this minimalist style, the whole apartment actually uses old pallets to keep a touch of ecology.

Brick Loft In Vancouver


One of the main goal behind the new re-design of this Vancouver based loft was to give more lightings to have a better place to live. And besides having a main courtyard to which everything lead, Omer Arbel had the idea of combining wood & brick to create a certain tension between the two elements, highlighting light and diversity in the same rooms. The rendering is particularly impressive.

Raw Materials And Brilliant Textures Displayed In Loft 24-7


Today I really wanted to show you a splendid loft occupying 180 square meters of modern interior space strongly connected to nature and decks connecting the different zones. Captured in between rough stone walls and limestone floors, a steel structure supports glass walls that capture natural light that bounces off textured design elements. Raw materials were combined with sophisticated shapes to create a stunning residence named Loft 24-7. Check this place out.

The Best Loft In The SOMA District Of San Francisco.


Step inside 110 Freelon through the laser optics lit, steel tube pathway, and you’ve entered SoMa’s most brilliantly designed live-work loft environment, all set on a quiet side street in the perfect location of SoMa (South of Market), a neighborhood in San Francisco. Developed by the current owner with consulting from Martin Building Company, this astounding residence offers up an incredibly dramatic entertaining and living environment boasting unparalleled features and amenities. Set across over 5,000 square feet of total living space (4,400+indoor living) and featuring multiple levels of mezzanines, this residence is a work in visual intrigue and functionality. Converted from an original warehouse structure, the property’s radiant heated hardwood floors were salvaged from a Los Angeles airplane hangar and pay homage to that original hangar use reflected by nearly 30 foot exposed timber and white-washed ceilings. The roof line is adorned with multiple skylights including a 16 x 20 foot retractable center skylight that literally brings the outdoors inside. Listed here for the asking price of $3,100,000.

Loft 24-7.


Ideally, wouldn’t we all like to live in a climate where outdoor living is possible year-round? And wouldn’t we love to live in a space where the divide between indoors and outdoors is non-existent? São Paulo-based Fernanda Marques achieved this idealistic balance in her Loft 24-7 residence, presented at the CasaCor exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil.  In the 250-square-meter (about 2,700 square feet) space, Marques has erased the barriers by using “outdoor” elements inside and “indoor” elements outside and creating easy visual links between the two. Limestone, rough stone, steel, glass, wood paneling and furnishings that speak to the architect’s modernist style, all create a harmonious, seamless environment where you are never quite in and never quite out.  Fernanda Marques is the chief architect at Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados that is involved in both residential and commercial architecture, interior design, furniture design and real estate.
