In a city where a 300-square-foot hotel room would be considered spacious this 2000-square-foot loft on Bowery is like a dream come true and is surprisingly about the same price per night as a room at a nice nearby hotel. With its 14-foot-high ceilings hand-selected art and a great room featuring a chef’s kitchen the only problem is that you might end up spending more time staying in than out on the town.
The lower level of the house contains the living space multiple workstations and a gorgeous kitchen with a versatile island at its heart. With two bedrooms and bathrooms the focus here is firmly on making the best use of the available space while ensuring that one room flows into another effortlessly. Thanks to the large glass windows the outdoors become a part of the interior even as the neutral color scheme lets pops of curated red shine through.
Spread across it is the second-story loft that was turned into a unique living space with a style that borrows heavily from an era gone by. Vintage at every turn large windows that mimicked “1930s steel-framed factory windows” exposed steel surfaces and concrete additions helped transform this old building into a sensational loft home.
Our choices in home design are often influenced by nostalgia the neighborhood that we grew up and live in and of course the architects and artists who touched our lives. Having spent most of their lives in New York in a period when ‘loft renovations with distinct industrial style’ were the hip trend this retired couple wanted a similar residence in Oregon.
There is no shortage of stunning landscape inside the but this magical cabin takes it to a whole new level with its ingenious design that seems to transcend time. The interiors of the cabin are obviously clad in timber and stone and a snug living area filled with decor that matches the laid-back style of the retreat welcomes you gleefully.
It is barely surprising then that today we have a stunning and inimitable home from this neighborhood that combines the industrial with Greek revival style while paying homage to its historic past. The recently renovated by BWArchitects has a captivating style of its own!
Part of the vacation retreat is built into the knoll and this gives it natural ventilation while offering ample privacy. The bedrooms and the living area showcase this sensible balance between unabated views and undisturbed solitude even as the extensive decks with large swiveling wooden doors and slats allow you to enjoy the sights and sounds of a warm southern summer. Unique black stained rain-screen cladding gives the home its distinct look and timber plays an important role in defining the cozy inviting interior as well.
