As much as I love that townhouse from my previous post, I will always and forever dream about living in a loft. This Brooklyn loft blows me away with its outdoor space, stunning kitchen and jaw-dropping book shelves. Again by BWArchitects. This dramatic conversion of a light manufacturing warehouse to an artist live/work loft studio juxtaposes the gritty, industrial character of the building exterior with warm, expansive interior spaces flooded by natural light. A retractable translucent wall divides the living and working areas. When closed, its translucency directs filtered light from the linear skylight and northern exposure rear facade towards the library and studio areas. A large sloped skylight acts as a space definer between the live and work areas and a white steel and glass staircase connects the lower level with sleeping rooms and a large roof deck occupying the floor above.
Benedek reached out to us about an interior design project he recently completed - a family home in Herminamező, just outside Budapest. With a garage, rooftop garden, ground floor laundry room, tons of book storage in the living/dining rooms and a fireplace, this house has it all. But it is the decor that is totally irresistible. With pieces from Benedek's store Szimpla Deisgn Shop the home is fresh, fun and every single inch is carefully though out and impeccably decorated. And if anyone in that area REALLY loves it - it is for sale! You can read all of the details in Benedek's blog post.
There are MANY projects I need to tackle in my house. One of them is turning the room on the third floor into a library. Currently all of my books and magazines are in piles on the floor in that room (along with all of our excess furniture) and it is driving me crazy that I don't have them organized and cannot access them easily. Unfortunately this project is not at the top of the to-do list, so in the meantime I thought I would do a round-up of rooms with bookcases, shelving...some really amazing ways books have been stored and put on display, so I can dream of the day when I have my library all set.
