Loft living is a movement that began in Manhattan with the recovery of old industrial spaces; warehouses and abandoned factories in New York City were converted into residences for a certain intellectual elite. As the movement grew, the loft ceased to be just a space for artistic production and took on new meaning as an emblem of the freedom of a new generation. This signified a change of direction from the migration towards suburban zones and brought about a resurgence of urban residences. Today, loft living has become a luxury that few, including many pioneers of the movement, can afford. With more than 800 full colour photographs, this volume is a compilation of more than 50 recent examples of international, contemporary lofts. Projects range from the traditionally remodeled industrial buildings to old farmhouses and garages transformed into modern living spaces.

Fantastic book, provides some excellent photography of many creative ideas for designing the architecture, colour scheme and even furniture for the modern loft, warehouse conversion or even apartment. A must for all minimalist lovers, interior designers, and creative DIY-ers interested in taking a punt on renovating a loft.
