Many loft spaces feature an industrial style that includes exposed ducts brick walls and original windows in all of their imperfect glory. Yet our first featured loft is anything but rough around the edges. In fact this space styled by Tom Stringer Design Partners boasts an elegance that takes loft living to an upscale level.
The beautiful combination of contrasting textures starts with the façade of the home which features a glass and white cement exterior for the ground floor and a warm reclaimed wood surface for the second floor. This gives the home a cool contemporary appeal allowing it to blend with its surroundings thanks to the natural organic vibe.
The lower level is clad in chic pristine white with a living room dining area and a fabulous kitchen connected in an open floor plan. Hand-scraped oak floors and pops of color here and there perfectly complement this glossy white lacquered look.
A young family with a young vision–these are the people who live in the Echo Beach house in Vancouver. Seen as a sustainable building the house allows for a green wall install if the owners will ever fancy it and is solar ready. But the feature that strikes us most is the expansive use of concrete not only to strengthen the whole structure of the house but also for its ease of maintenance and the overall wow factor it gives the whole interior.
