Marco & Ilse's Gothic Industrial Loft House Tour

Marco & Ilse's Gothic Industrial Loft  House Tour | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Name: Marco Pecota & Ilse Gudino Location: Toronto, Canada Size: 2,700 square feet Years lived in: 5 years, owned Imagining what the combined efforts of an industrial furniture designer/horror magazine publisher/film maker and a professional flamenco dancer could do with a boxy mixed-use building couldn’t even come close to the dramatic reality that is Marco & Ilse’s multi-level loft. Especially considering the fact that every inch was carefully planned in a full interior demolition and re-design by Marco himself.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Lovely, interesting and well done! "This incredible space is clearly the work of artists in their element, bringing together gothic-romantic pieces with daring industrial and Spanish flavors. Never one to shy away from bold choices...."

This loft submission from RIP3D is both traditional and organic, which makes for an uncharacteristically softened space.

A new industrial loft to savour. We do adore the nature of these spaces: large windows, original brick and wood elements, pipes of necessity....you know the drill by now!

We hope you enjoy this awesome example of Raw and Real Interior Design......

Be inspired by the quirky design and smart use of space in this warehouse, cleverly converted into a laid-back modern home.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

We perhaps have visited this interesting abode previously, but it's so shabby cool and I adore the bedroom and bathroom (which BTY is all over Pinterest).

 

The bedroom is on the mezzanine and the beams give it an intimate feel. The owner has hung her dresses to create pretty artworks. The floor was reclaimed from a basketball court.

Turning an old Chicago warehouse into a new family home

Turning an old Chicago warehouse into a new family home | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
An inventive rehabbing of a flatiron-shaped 1920s warehouse building included carving out courtyard and atrium spaces.

 

Be sure to play the slideshow: http://www.builderonline.com/design/rough-and-ready.aspx

ParadigmGallery's insight:

Easily found items such as metal-clad doors and industrial sinks for the kitchen contrast with the building’s brick exterior, playing modern against historic. Large, off-the-shelf industrial windows let light into the space, open up the interiors, and help the building relate better to the out-of-doors. Using ready-made fittings saved on budget, too.

Unlike many homes, inside this one, skateboarding and floor hockey are a-okay: For kids, that’s the stuff of dreams. For parents, on the other hand, indoor sports could be the very definition of mayhem—but in this Chicago house, it also makes for peace of mind.

 

Miller/Hull Partnership, an architectural firm based in Seattle, was selected for this project. Their portfolio and philosophy is impressive.

Story By Wendy Goodman 2009

http://nymag.com/homedesign/spring2009/56434/

"Like many design lovers, he started young, drawing floor plans and making houses for his Smurfs from shoe boxes while growing up in Seattle. Now, living in a former warehouse in Brooklyn, his decorative instinct is to casually great pieces. “I really feel comfortable here. I’ve collected and let that collection say something about myself,” says Alhadeff. “I’ve never treated my house as an interior-design project or felt I needed to justify my belongings.”

 

ParadigmGallery's insight:

Living in ItAt the Future Perfect, David Alhadeff sells advanced coolness. In his rehabbed Brooklyn warehouse home, he’s surrounded by it.

( It is very likely he no longer lives in this space, the story is a couple of years old. He has expanded his retail business, Future Perfect, to San Francisco and has a successful showroom in Manhattan. http://www.thefutureperfect.com/ )

What I adore is the marriage of industrial pieces with antiques, and clean finnished wood with highly textured walls. I also appreciate the interesting accessories in the room.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

Another great conversion in London! This home is very connected to it's past life as an industrial space. It has honored the raw concrete components and pipes in the design. The concrete actually makes a stronger statement in contrast to the lovely wood finnishes on the floors and doors. White walls showcase the hip and cool art choices. Overall, the incredible views of the London skyline and  very modern, minimalist amenities help to create a wonderful  #rawandreal home.

Lofty aspirations: Artist and downtown pioneer Christopher Reyes built comfortable space for work, play | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it

When Christopher Reyes found his dream home on the southwest corner of Madison and Main Street in the early '90s, he had a hard time getting a bank to back him. "At that time, the banks didn't believe in Downtown. They considered it a dump and not worth investing in," said the former art student ....Memphis, Tennessee

Warehouse Conversion in San Francisco

Warehouse Conversion in San Francisco | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Interior Design and Inspirational Homes Magazine - HomeDSGN, your daily source for interior design ideas, home design trends, modern homes and contemporary architecture.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

This 2,100 square-foot, one bedroom, two bath loft located in a publisher’s print shop built in 1910, was designed and is owned by well-known designer Steven Volpe.

 

This conversion brings together a sophisticated design approach with fun and modern details. There is a wonderful, full size kitchen and a charming outdoor space which brings the garden into the interior. Their are beautiful,  probably original aged beams throughout the home adding just a touch of a vintage vibe. The  strong elements of brick bring warmth and texture to the rooms. The light, clean and modern look of the floors, counterbalances the rustic elements as do the tall expanses of white walls.This is another example of an awesome, industrial, conversion.

Do you like this home, what in particular appeals to you?

Ptuj Performance Center by ENOTA | Archinect:defining raw and real

Ptuj Performance Center by ENOTA | Archinect:defining raw and real | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
ShowCase is an on-going feature series on Archinect, presenting exciting new work from designers representing all creative fields and all geographies.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

When we talk about combining and converting old buildings it usually refers to early 1900's to mid 1900's.  Originally built as a Gothic monastery in Ptuj, Slovenia, this 13th-century structure has housed soldiers, the sick, art patrons, and of course, monastics, while morphing over time into a more Baroque style.

 

The very modern and minimal approach to updating the functionality of the Dominican Monastery shows restraint and respect for it's 800 years of history.

 

"Limited by the potential for future excavations, ENOTA only worked with surfaces that had already been fully investigated -- namely, the floor. Rather than competing with or imitating the antiquity of the remaining surfaces, their sleek black design is quietly contrasting, enough to "drown the chaos" of the parts of the building in stages of disrepair."

Beautiful home interior design.
ParadigmGallery's insight:

I was unable to find out details about this house, but it qualified based on several of my criteria.

Take notice of the lovely textures of the brick walls, presented fully painted and with lovely, aged (authentic?) appearance. The floors and ceilings  are wonderful wide planks, and the rustic crossbeams highlight and contrast with the painted wood above.

The important details of the bathroom and kitchen are given top priority, the homeowners are not roughing it in any way.

 

There are a number of images, more then usual, so enjoy my wonderful fans of the Raw and Real side of Interior Design.
