London Loft: a Glance from the Old World

The already traditional loft style originated and became popular in America in the middle of the past century. The old industrial premises in the central parts of cities first became shelters for marginal personalities and not rich artists after they were left by the factory owners, and then expensive and stylish apartments for the elite society.

Today, you can meet lofts not only in Chicago: there are appreciators of brutal aesthetics in many countries. Let us consider some examples of European interpretation of lofts: works of designers from different European countries.

The interior of the living space by designer Kostas Geranios slightly resembles a traditional loft. The coffee table from wooden transport pallets is probably the only replica of the gruff design style.

London Loft

“Revitalization of a loft in one of London tenement houses, made by PressEnter Design. The goal of this project was to make a modern interior, but at the same time keep it warm and cozy. As we can see on the visualizations below, that were also made by PressEnter Design, we achieved this by finishing the interior with warm wood. The exception is the bathroom, finished in architectural concrete.”
