The trend for loft residences began among a few select groups, namely artists, artisans and designers. A discarded factory or warehouse is converted into a tall and spacious living area, often highly personalised in design. Over the years, loft residences have developed their own unique style.
This book is divided into two parts: 'Hard Loft' - converted factories or warehouses - and 'Soft Loft' - new residence space designed in the loft style. In addition, several popular contemporary design styles are featured, such as industrial, Scandinavian, modern and minimalist. Combining different styles within a loft setting means that there are infinite possibilities to explore.
