Impressive loft renovation by ixdesign

In New York City’s West Village once was a poor apartment in bad need of a renovation. It was 1.050 sq ft loft-like apartment with an old design and limited natural light. The apartment sits on 130 Barrow Street and the building it’s part of wasn’t always an apartment complex. The structure was originally built in 1931 as a truck garage. It stayed like that until 1983 when it was converted into condominiums.

This particular apartment was later renovated by ixdesign. The limited natural light and outdated décor were turned into the beautiful design you see now. The apartment now has larger windows and more storage space that was created wither by carving or augmenting the irregular space.

Mauricio Arruda’s São Paulo Apartment

Today we’re going to take a peak at this lovely apartment owner by Mauricio Arruda. It’s located in São Paulo, Brasil and it’s a classic beauty. The apartment was first purchased in 1957 and its original layout was a little different than it is now. Back then it was divided into social, service and living areas. Some changes had to be made but nothing too dramatic. There’s still a harmonious connection between old and new.The materials and finishes inside are typical to the 1950s but the décor also has a modern twist.

The apartment had to suffer a major renovation during which all the wall were knocked down except for the central pillar. During the renovation, the kitchen had been moved to another location and a bedroom was removed. Also, two bathrooms were made into one. This opened up the whole space and now the kitchen is connected to the living room.

The whole project was meant to improve the way the apartment was divided and structured, to make it more functional and to give it a new look. The new penthouse now has a clear and practical distinction between the public and private areas and the rooms and joined together by a common structure. The bathroom and kitchen were enlarged and all the rooms now benefit from more natural light thanks to the large windows.
