Design and Decor by Philippe Saharoff

Book Description

Lofts present residents, architects and decorators with design considerations unlike those in more traditional houses and apartments. Because lofts are inherently "decompartmentalised," the organisation of discrete spaces within the open environment is a design priority. The control of natural light likewise assumes unusual importance in spaces where windows are large and interior walls are few. These challenges, however, underscore the ingenuity of "Design/Decor: Loft", a book that focuses, in turn, on each of the loft's internal subdivisions: spaces for living and working, cooking and eating, sleeping and bathing. Detailed attention is paid to harmonising all the aspects of each interior: windows, floors and partitions; cabinetry and other built-in elements; and furniture, lighting and appliances. Also receiving special emphasis are the transitional spaces - stairs and mezzanines - that can make lofts so visually compelling.
