It could be safely said that we have a penchant for industrial lofts
. This photorealistic representation from RIP3D
is a softer alternative to lofts previously featured from Kiev
and shares some characteristics with a favorite submission from Israel-based designers, Ando Studio
. Lofts by their very nature are fundamentally open plan. In fact, with the desirable addition of a skylight, they fall just short of being open-air, but this is certainly the energy these vast spaces emit. High ceilings showcase creative means of illumination in their best light and large-scale widows treated minimally ensure such grand habitats aren't subject to their own shadows. Other features that define industrial lofts are the materials with which they are constructed which speak to their often commercial pasts, such as exposed brick, polished concrete and rustic wood.
