This fabulous old apartment showcases eclectic decor and a unique character, given a brilliant reform by the design team at Bonba Studio, located in Barcelona, Spain. Preserving the original structure of the home was the main goal of this renovation project. The home originally had many rooms, so the top priority was to create large spaces that are connected and have a good flow. The result was brighter living environments that still retained their beautiful original structure. A single common area was designed for the homeowners to gather, for relaxation and great conversation. The space is directly connected to the kitchen and dining room. To help visually connect the spaces, the same unique flooring pattern of restored hydraulic tiles travels throughout, as well as identical paint on the walls. The fusion of vintage art pieces and some recycled furniture, along with some pieces designed by Bonba Studio, and others of pure design, creates a unique environment with a wonderful personality.
After the renovation, the two bedrooms are very spacious, having their own bathroom. These private zones are separated from the rest of the home, accessed down a long hallway. Another brilliant design solution that helped to solve the complicated distribution, is in the master bathroom. It is a long and narrow space with a wall of windows, so the designer selected opaque window treatments to allow natural light to filter through the space while at the same time enabling complete privacy.

White Street Loft is a beautiful 19th century loft designed by owner and principal James Ramsey of Raad Studio, located in Tribeca, an area in Lower Manhattan, New York. The home does not offer a lot of natural light, but makes up for it in the well placed light fixtures. Originally details have been carefully preserved, such as old windows, tin ceilings and exposed brick walls. New finishes were added such as light oak flooring, refreshing the walls with a coat of white paint and modern stainless appliances. Three windows were added to the center of the loft where the apartment was the darkest to allow some natural light to filter into the space. Some custom designed pieces by the designer includes a walnut storage/stereo cabinet, a 300 bottle wine rack crafted from terra cotta drainage pipes and a Beluga whale skeleton designed from a plaster mold that floats over the dining table. The custom kitchen showcases black granite countertops, white subway tile backsplash, and an island covered in white marble and walnut. The end result is a super stylish pad with plenty of tactile materials and stunning decorative accents, enjoy the photo tour!
