It is important to understand that while the term loft has been widely used to describe nearly any open concept interior, in its purest form, a loft dwelling represents the transformation of a historic industrial space into one that is focused primarily on satisfying a residential purpose. The resulting concept is not one that seeks to redesign the interior space so that it conforms more specifically to the general residential formula, but rather, to allow the architectural essence of the existing industrial interior to dictate the design of what will become a unique residential space A space that is ultimately defined by the history of the building within which it will be created.
Designed with industry in mind, the Southam Building is rich in architectural attributes not commonly found in many buildings of today. Expansive arched window bays, barrel vaulted ceilings and voluminous columned interiors all illuminated by tremendous amounts of natural light provide the perfect backdrop for an authentic loft conversion. Simply put, the concrete and brick structure that defines the interiors of this historic printing facility are the canvas for the 81 authentic lofts to be located within.
Beginning with an extensive restoration effort, step one of this conversion project will be to return the Southam Building to its original state. Once completed, the architectural attributes of the newly refurbished structure will be accentuated through the design of authentic flexible loft dwellings that will provide a harmonious fusion between the buildings industrial elegance and the sleek modern minimalism of todays sophisticated urban residences. The goal of this purist approach is to allow the structures architectural elements to literally define each loft thereby creating neutral interiors within which anyone can express their own unique individuality regardless of what specific lifestyle attributes any unique individual may have.
With ultra modern and highly functional kitchens, bathrooms and storage units that are the culmination of exceptional European design and materials ideally suited for real life, each loft will not only satisfy ones creature comforts but do so in a fashion that considerably extends the flexibility of the loft concept. Thermal windows, energy recovery complimented HVAC systems, durable porcelain tiling , oil stained natural hardwoods, and German appliances complete the application of quality through every component of the finishing.
Intelligently designed common areas. Having been originally built to house very large printing presses, the Southam Building does not present itself as a typical conversion project. The intelligent design of the spaces within the building that all units will share is just important as the design of the units themselves.
