New York-style loft in Vienna

There’s something about New York lofts that’s unmistakable. They have a certain flair and look and would allow you to recognize that style anywhere in the world. And just because it originated in New York this doesn’t mean you can’t recreate it somewhere else. For example, this loft is located in Vienna, Austria and it has a design inspired by the classical New York lofts.

The apartment is part of an apartment building that was originally a warehouse. It was then converted into lofts and offices and completed in 2005.This particular loft is owned by a family of four. Notice that the space is not divided into rooms but rather into some sort of boxes. There are three such volumes and they each fulfill a different function. The loft covers a total area of 260 square meters and inside there are separate zones with different levels of privacy.

One of the volumes includes the children’s rooms. These spaces are acoustically separated by the rest of the loft with floor-to-ceiling acoustic glass elements. The parent’s bedroom is another area and it’s separated from the living area with large sliding doors. These two volumes are the privacy spaces of the loft. There’s a third volumes, the biggest one, that includes the public spaces such as the living and dining areas and the kitchen. The top of these boxes can form either an office or a library. It’s visible that the loft still features some of the industrial character of the building but it has been personalized with individual furniture pieces and a simple but very stylish interior design.{found on behance}.
