SE Division Street is a commercial building project that was transformed by Emerick Architects into an industrial home by adding a second story light-filled living space in Portland, Oregon. An open floor plan, lots of large windows and door panels and 12 foot tall ceilings give it the character of an industrial loft. Custom stainless kitchen cabinetry combined with vintage fixtures and furniture carry out the eclectic feel of an old urban loft.
A machined hood, custom stainless cabinetry and exposed ducting harkens to a commercial vibe. The 5′x10′ marble topped island wears many hats. It serves as a large work surface, tons of storage, informal seating, and a visual line that separates the eating and cooking areas.
Windows and door panels reaching for the 12 foot ceilings flood this kitchen with natural light. Custom stainless cabinetry with an integral sink and commercial style faucet carry out the industrial theme of the space.
Upon entering the penthouse the light and dark contrast continues. The exposed ceiling structure is stained to mimic the 1st floor’s “tarred” ceiling. The reclaimed fir plank floor is painted a light vanilla cream. And, the hand plastered concrete fireplace is the visual anchor that all the rooms radiate off of. Tucked behind the fireplace is an intimate library space.
A glimpse into the office space from the living room reveals the large custom built-in painted wood filing and storage cabinet below the windows. Clerestory windows above the desk bring in additional natural light.
A custom-designed paneled zinc barn door is a piece of art, as well as functioning to close off the living space when desired.
A huge wall of windows faces the bed and billowy parachute curtains soften the space. The room was left simple and intimate to create restfulness.
With the floor to ceiling windows continuing through into the bathroom, and white details throughout, the room is airy and filled with light. The sink is re-purposed from a commercial building and the custom zinc medicine cabinets are extra deep and outfitted with outlets so that the bathroom clutter is contained.
The movement is orchestrated so that you experience the heavier/darker ground floor upon entering the building and then travel up through the light filled stairway.
The concrete stair treads and steel risers wrap around the hand plastered elevator shaft.
The interior stair that leads up to the living space is filled with natural light and gives way to a view of the rooftop outdoor terrace and garden.
Setting the penthouse 12 feet away from the property lines allowed for outdoor rooms. as well as another opportunity for an environmental feature: storm water management. With tall light embracing windows and bi-fold doors the indoors feels a part of the outdoors and vice versa.
The exterior terrace features large concrete tiles, built-in planters and a reflecting pool. Amber string lights provide mood lighting outside the dining space.
The second story was added atop this existing commercial building to make a new loft-style residence. The existing building received new windows and a facelift to blend with the new rooftop dwelling.

This modern Loft Space in Camden has been transformed into a bright and dynamic living-working space by London based studio Craft Design. Originally used as an open plan office space, the challenge was to convert the 602 square foot (56 square meters) property into a bespoke and innovative environment that efficiently and creatively responds to the demands of living in London. In response to the brief, the idea was to maximize the sense of space as well as keeping a simple and efficient layout. The solution successfully achieved this with the introduction of a single volume located central to the loft where all the services are accommodated. Detached from the facades and ceilings this element has divided the open plan into several spaces for different uses such as Kitchen-Dinning, Living Room, Storage, Bathroom and a Mezzanine for the sleeping and working area.
The 4.5 m height party wall and roof eaves have been fully used with shelves and storage, which serve the whole space. The stair to access the mezzanine level was cleverly integrated into this single piece of furniture. The rest was about keeping a simple palette in terms of materials and colors to allow the owner collection of objects, art and books give the wall an authentic personality to the space.

This incredible two storey industrial style loft apartment is situated in New York’s NoHo district, designed by Wettling Architects. The owner is Bradley Darryl Wong, who is best known for his role as Dr. George Huang in the TV series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. His 12-year-old son lives with him on weekends. The bedroom with en-suite and dressing room and a laundry room are at basement level. On the ground floor, there is a large living space, kitchen, guest bedroom/office, and another bedroom and bathroom. It was important for the homeowner to show the history of the former commercial building, so plaster was removed to reveal brick walls and the air-conditioning pipes were exposed.
The architect added a wall of windows and a massive steel skylight to replace the original wooden one and brighten the back of the buildings. Layers of plaster were chipped away to reveal vaulted brick ceilings. Then reclaimed wooden flooring and salvaged pieces were brought in, including a pair of century-old bronze doors for the entrance. Complementing the polished wood and warm brick are walls painted in rich green and purple, with furnishings in acid yellow and fuchsia. The downstairs space is oxblood red to match a lacquered box that belonged to the homeowner’s grandfather.
The stainless-steel kitchen is a mix of existing units and new cabinetry. Bright-shaped tiles echo the original exposed brick in the rest of the apartment and contrast with the cool steel units.
The view down the wide hallway showcases the theatrical elements of the homeowner’s apartment, with stage lights spotlighting the kitchen and living room ‘sets.’ The layout is adaptable, so the space can be divided into intimate areas or opened up when friends come to visit.
The glazed doors were sourced from the basement of the historic Puck Building. They conceal shallow cupboards where the homeowner hangs his favorite hats.
