loft lust {LA}


totally in lust. {r} and i really love our home here in southern california. but i hope and dream that one day we can move back into a loft with huge old windows, ridiculously tall ceilings, and concrete floors. i miss the industrial feel of our loft with exposed ducts and pipes, and old brick walls peeling with layers of paint from previous owners. but more than anything i long for the open floor plan that comes with a loft . . . where we could paint, make furniture and just be messy! i came across this artist studio and can’t get it out of my mind. olson kundig architects transformed an old shoe warehouse into an unbelievably amazing 3,750 SF studio space for working, entertaining, & gallery display. so lustworthy:

100 year old sign serves as part of the entrance to the studio
work space with an abundance of natural light and a few simple pendants
the artist at work in the studio
stairway leading up to the rooftop garden
wall partitions slide/rotate to create different types of space
26 foot-long table serves as functional art
