One of Europe’s best city apartments is located in the Montorgueil neighbourhood in the 2nd arrondissement in Paris, France. This 310 square meters (3,337 sq. ft.) state of the art luxury designer loft apartment has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a lower level integrated gym equipped with a sauna. The main living area has an open floor plan with a gourmet kitchen. The wraparound mezzanine has sitting areas all around and overlooks the main living area below. The master bedroom has access to a balcony with view of the courtyard. There is a stone wall in the lower level which provides an interesting contrast to the modern staircase. The apartment design includes a two-storey high cathedral window and skylights which allow plenty of natural light to spread through the entire loft.
The Collector’s Loft, located in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York is a gallery and apartment loft all in one. The gently flowing curved walls create hybrid zones where the living areas and exhibition areas meet. The exhibition walls also blend gently with the library shelves. Designed by UNStudio, the architect used floor to ceiling glass panels to frame the compelling views of Manhattan. This loft design unifies art and city living, creating the ultimate modern interior space.
Designer Vicente Wolf bought a loft in an old office building on the edge of Manhattan and turned it into a stylish residential loft. Pipes and sprinklers of the original industrial space are still visible, Wolf feels the raw quality is what makes a loft special. Each piece of furniture stands on its own. In an unconventional space, the designer wants an unconventional arrangement of furniture. The sense of space is played up, only the bedroom and bath have sliding doors. The continuity of the open space is enhanced by white walls, ceilings and floors.
