Loft Window Blinds
Lofts: Living In Space
The approach of the millennium has heralded a renaissance in urban living that has seen the widespread conversion of former schools, factories, hospitals, warehouses, and commercial spaces to provide stylish accommodation in our increasingly overcrowded cities. Formerly a marginal residential option, favored mostly by artists whose oversized artworks required the big, open spaces offered by industrial or commercial buildings, lofts have now become the fashionable choice for those who want to break free from the restrictions of conventional apartments. Designed along the lines of classic New York lofts, these vast spaces offer urban dwellers inspirational space.
With stunning photographs of some of the world's most innovative conversions-- including the work of leading international architects and designers-- Lofts is the ultimate sourcebook for stylish, urban living. Combining the aspirational with the practical, it provides design solutions on a vast scale, whether you choose to commission an architect or interior designer or take on the work yourself. With creative ideas and key information for everything from space-planning and maximizing design characteristics to decorative schemes, fabrics, and furniture, Lofts illustrates how to create the definitive living space that complements your lifestyle and combines aesthetics with comfort.
I like this idea of story telling in a picture because it reveals the photographer as the voyeur, (me). I was on the other side of the street on a roof top shooting back at my loft window. Camera in one hand and cell phone mic/ear-piece strapped to my head and connected to the loft's speaker phone so I could give directions. I looked like a CIA operative. My neighbors, unaware of what I was doing, pulled their blinds down in fear of their privacy:)
This was taken at around 11:00AM. I used a polarizer filter and crushed the blacks in Photoshop. - Digital, natural lighting.
closed up for window washing
I was working from home on friday and completely forgot that my building's windows were going to be cleaned that day.
I saw a guy tying himself to the roof and got a little freaked out and soon after a bunch of men were hanging on ropes in front of my windows. I felt a bit like I was in a fish bowl! Instead I closed up the blinds and resisted the temptation to take a picture of them. That would have been one great picture though...
loft window blinds
Since its inception at the end of the 1960s, loft living has generated an entire movement dedicated to the recovery of old, industrial spaces. Today, the loft is becoming more accessible to the general public, as its original definition expands to include a variety of open-plan living spaces. With this current expansion, there is a growing diversity in the way architects treat the characteristic white walls, exposed metal, glass screens, and expansive hard floors.
As Lofts DesignSource illustrates, individual expression is the key. Experimentation with distribution, color, texture, materials, and finishes can result in personalized spaces and urban sanctuaries that reflect the most individual of architectural designs. With projects ranging from New York to Paris and everywhere in between, this title provides readers with a comprehensive examination of the exciting changes taking place in today’s loft environment. And with more than 600 full-color illustrations, Lofts DesignSource is sure to become an integral part of every library.
