When designing the loft apartment, the designers wanted to maximize the open space as much as possible, and provide plenty of light.

They did this by keeping the original height of the rooms, adding more windows and painting most of the walls a bright white.

Throughout the apartment there are touches of brick and wood, which pair nicely with the wood flooring and dark charcoal gray tiles.
