    Default A San Francisco loft















    Lofts have many apparent advantages. For designers it is an opportunity to fulfill their most daring ideas. When Jonathan Straley purchased this loft in a former chocolate factory, there was only a bathroom and pillars at two-meter distances. The first step of the reconstruction was the floor. It was covered with matchboards; their light-brown color brings in warmth and makes a quaint contrast with stone ceilings. Walls, painted in white, serve as a good decoration for the collection of art. In order to keep the wholeness of the space, the designer organized rooms without walls. A large pillar originally divides the sitting room, on its one side there is an artificial fireplace, on the reverse a bookcase which, together with a writing table and a couple of chairs, makes up the library. Cupboards serve here as screen-partitions between the apartment areas.

    I like it too! I cannot believe how nice and effective that flooring is! A few of the furnishings, well meh, but it will always be like that you know? Overall I like the main components.

    i don't care for the pressboard used as flooring at all. that stuff's ugly, imo...i wouldn't want to see it every day.

    i do LOVE that huge print of the swimmer in the pool on that one living room wall! it's so lively!

    I'd have to get used to the chipped concrete and the wooden boards. That type of lumber I've only seen for structural use to be covered up, like the skeleton but never the skin.

    The space is great as are the windows.
    I would throw all the furniture and art out and redo it to my own taste, though.

    I absolutely loathe that chipped concrete pillar, as well as the concrete ceiling and the wood chip floors. Eww.

    Agree with everything. And it looks like they made that room divider out of matching plywood too.

    I don't like loft spaces. The huge warehouse feel isn't homey to me.
