Places & Spaces | The Home of Architect Stephen Jolson - Share Design | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Architect Stephen Jolson is an expert in meshing architecture, interiors and landscapes into a holistic experience and his Melbourne home that we recently had the pleasure of photographing, is no …See the full story
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Once an abandoned confectionary factory warehouse, now the original red brick industrial facade gives no hint to what lies inside, the interior is an unexpected oasis. Jolson’s dedication to detail and ability to bring nature, architecture and interiors together has resulted in a home that is not only sophisticated but artfully timeless. excerpts are from the original post....

Atmospheric Converted Warehouse With A Private Balcony In Historic Tower Hill : London

Atmospheric Converted Warehouse With A Private Balcony In Historic Tower Hill : London | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Never forget In Victorian times, Tower Bridge was the gateway to London. Saffron, anise, tamarind and tea all passed along this stretch of the Thames before being tucked away in warehouses like Ivory House. This ...
ParadigmGallery's insight:

In a former life this was a warehouse for spices and tea. Now it is a rental option in London's Tower Bridge neighborhood.

....curved windows, the high ceilings and exposed structure saturate the space with history....

 

Guess what...if you are visiting London you can rent this beautiful space!

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.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

Becky Harris is a great interviewer....."Brian Patrick Flynn can burst into a building, round up a bunch of crazy flea market finds, add fabulous fabrics and lacquer and completely remake the place like a whirling dervish. Or a decor demon."

 

There are wonderful images of this 920-square-foot Atlanta loft in a former milk factory where Brian lived previously.

 

A take away thought from Brian:


What is your biggest design pet peeve?
My biggest designer pet peeve has to be sticks thrown into a tall vase and shoved in a corner. What the hell is that?

Shoreditch Loft Renovation by Affect-t
ParadigmGallery's insight:

I usually select an interior image, but today this photo won my heart over. The interior of this 200+ year old London rennovated warehouse has many great qualities and some outstanding design features. Take note of the dining space and it's lighting, the bathroom, the stairs and stair screen detail. Also the charm of the master bedroom and roof garden....enjoy and remember we like hearing from you.

 

Details in the story....worth the read.

Amsterdam Loft Filled With Surreal Treasures.

Amsterdam Loft Filled With Surreal Treasures. | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
This interior is a hidden gem in an old 18th century warehouse that overlooks the city of Amsterdam. The loft is a great depiction of rustic charm meets surrealist-steam punk-feminism.
ParadigmGallery's insight:



Great, creative enclave....many interesting details to appreciate but a bit "dark" for my taste both literally and figuratively. I also admire the restraint used in not overdecorating. The juxtaposition of some of the elements set in this beautifully richly textured space is dear..Eames Chair....so on....

Interesting how the drapes are used to create separations between rooms.

A 19th-Century Live/Work Factory in New York

A 19th-Century Live/Work Factory in New York | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
Whether they’re fabricating a dining chair, designing a line for West Elm, or building out a kitchen, Amy and Brandon Phillips find ways to reveal the unique histories and characteristics of the materials within their work. “We don’t believe in enshrining the past,” says Brandon, “but we don’t need to hide it either. We can respect it.”
ParadigmGallery's insight:

The talented partnership of Amy and Brandon Phillips created an inspiring renovation on a 19th Century Factory for a living and work space. We love their philosophy of embracing and showcasing the inherent features of this standout architecture.

 

"The couple’s large two-bedroom flat is composed primarily of stained heart-pine floors, mottled worn-brick walls, and enormous metal windows set with blue-and-white safety glass. It’s a testament to the richness of well-placed, delicately finished found materials. "

 

The kitchen and the bathroom are standouts!

Warehouse Converted into Luxury Loft Apartment in San Francisco

Who says you can’t own a great apartment on the west coast? While it’s true that New York City may be the first place people think of when luxury apartment conversations come up, this SoMa San Francisco based loft proves that the Bay Area is home to some incredible apartments. This stunning space was developed by...
ParadigmGallery's insight:

This is not an ordinary warehouse conversion, but an eccentric and unique living space. You can play basketball, hang out under your "live" tree, or go to your home office. The details are numerous and high end, and the space is large, open and bright. Wait until you see the architecturally awesome exterior!

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/ )

La Maison Fou: Warehouse Convert

La Maison Fou: Warehouse Convert | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
ParadigmGallery's insight:

I have my doubts about the images being from the same converted space, having said that, they are great photos each on their own. 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.

Since you are here you are likely a fan of interior design.If you have time, you might find this post from our blog interesting, the topic is eclectic decorating. http://www.midcenturymodernfurniturethenandnow.com/decoratinghow-much-is-too-much/

ParadigmGallery's insight:

"The upper floors of historic downtown buildings throughout Michigan hold literally hundreds of thousands of square feet of economic potential. When renovated as living spaces, these spaces can increase the value of the buildings, generate new revenue for downstairs businesses, build a cluster of daily customers for local businesses, and create a day-and-night vibrancy to downtown neighborhoods".....Natalie Burg                                                   

 

The key to change is investment, and where necessary extra incentive and support is available from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority or MSHDA and/or local government assistance.
