Interior design for remodel in historic loft space. Originally built in 1896, this Mergenthaler Building residence features exposed brick, cedar beams and cast iron fixtures. The design nearly doubled the living space by adding private rooms, separated by sliding translucent glass doors.
Indigenous limestone was used for the central eight-foot kitchen island stone hearth and window sills, with reclaimed timber was used for the mantel and incorporated throughout the entire space, for the mantel, as shelving in closets and across the expanse of the wall in the open-plan kitchen. Accessories were chosen to complement the loft style architecture, exposed brick, cedar beams and cast iron fixtures. The 16-foot ceiling in the main living area features a Crescendo Suspension Chandelier and can be viewed from window of the upstairs bedroom which was the main room added on in the remodel. Custom designed stained glass bannister railings on the stairs match the railing on the second level.
