Laneway Loft


This what I think of when I think of a loft - something that has been converted from a factory and not something built new and called a "loft". This particular space with the wide loading doors which look out onto railway tracks with a lot of trees along them looks so funky - I'd love to see inside. A friend lived in the fabulous space beside it but didn't have these great doors!

What a lovely window in the middle! I wonder how it looks inside.

Jack said...

Yup. This is what I call a loft, too.

I like that they left the I-beam.

I'd LOVE to live in a place like this, with big windows and some potted plants! :)

oh! now I'm not sure if we have these in Guatemala, I have to investigate. It looks a lovely space. :)

This is my idea of a loft as well. It looks really nice! I wouldn't mind living in a real loft space.

A place like this would cost you an arm and a leg in London! Very sought after..

That is what I call a loft too, or an old office building converted to lofts. Industrial.

These are great. I love when they convert old factories and warehouses.

I like the building a lot and the black doors with red trip look very inviting.

Always intrigued by what people call home.

How fabulous Red, I wonder if they are artists?? Love how they've organized the balcony, bet it's close to all the best spots!!

This is what I think of, too! :) I would very much like to see the inside of this building.

My brother had friends who lived in a loft (way before it was fashionable) and I have always dreamed of such a space - tucked in an alley.

neat. I like that you can get some plants outside, which softens the harsh exterior.

Nice catch. I wonder why they didn't make the door as tall as the windows to either side? It looks like it was filled in a little with brick.
