Loft love

Posted on Thu, 12 Jan 2023 by midcenturyjo

Just when I think my love for lofts has waned BAM! I’m smitten all over again. The space, the ceiling heights, light flooding in and the touch of industrial. In this case, the industrial remnants are juxtaposed with a neoclassical riff. Sophisticated with a touch of urban grit Soho Factory Loft by Jessica Schuster.

“Pacific House is an alteration and addition to an existing 1990’s concrete framed cliffside dwelling. It is exposed to the Easterly facing ocean and closely adjacent similar cliffside dwelling structures. We have replanned the dwelling, adding external amenity including landscape works and a swimming pool. We have also modified portions of the exterior building envelope including doors and windows, cladding, entries, external decks, facades and pergolas.”

It may be a display bathroom for Casadecor but a girl can dream that it’s all her own. I actually wanted to just type a long, long line of drool emojis for this post but I’ll let the pictures do the talking. Casadecor Exposición 2021 by Madrid-based Estudio María Santos.

Huge thanks to Adam for sending us the link to this incredible listing!

We have been featuring the work of renowned photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes for many years and I was delighted to hear from him the other day. He wanted to share the home he recently purchased and renovated (it was in quite a state when he bought it, and there are before photos at the end of this post). It is a triplex apartment in Hackney, East London that is available for photo shoots and features some retro vintage furnishings that has always been his signature style. Graham’s new home is fabulous with a kitchen that is now modern and filled with light from 2 large windows, a luxurious master bedroom with en-suite, a gorgeous modern bathroom tiled with large format tiles resembling polished concrete with corner bath (looove!!!!) and a lofty bedroom that also has great windows.

He’s done such an incredible job with this home, getting rid of the bland and ugly and creating a cool, vintage-vibing place. I had to share some of the before photos given the condition it was in which shows how much of a project this was. Great job Graham!!!
