Oriental Warehouse Loft redesign

Under the category of “that’s rather gorgeous” is the work of Edmonds + Lee architects to update the interior of an Oriental Warehouse Loft. While I’m suitably impressed with their work in the loft, I’m also really a fan of the historic picture they found of the building exterior. I’m not aware when the picture was actually taken, but I like it so much that I’ve shamelessly copied and pasted it below:

I can’t tell from the pictures which particular loft it was that they redid at the Oriental Warehouse, but if I am ever able to track that information down I will be sure to share it. There is an incredible set of photographs that you can see here at loftenburg or at a number of other sites, including knstrct, which is how I happened to stumble across the information.

While there are a number of things that I think are exceptionally beautiful about the renovation, I have to admit that in particular I’m a fan of the soaking tub (with the faucet coming out of the ceiling) and the beautiful staircase. Given the amount of glass that is involved in the design, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the owners of the home don’t have any dogs or children, and have no plans to add any to their household in the near future.

There are a couple of homes at the Oriental Warehouse that are currently for sale, although sadly, none of them have the architectural elegance and “wow-factor” of this particular renovation, but they can give you a good feel for the variety of finishes you’ll find throughout the building. Hope you enjoyed this peek inside a gorgeous loft as much as I did, if you have additional questions about the building or area don’t hesitate to get in touch!
