Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since its inception at the end of the 1960s, loft living has generated an entire movement dedicated to the recovery of old, industrial spaces. Today, the loft is becoming more accessible to the general public, as its original definition expands to include a variety of open-plan living spaces. With this current expansion, there is a growing diversity in the way architects treat the characteristic white walls, exposed metal, glass screens, and expansive hard floors.

As Lofts DesignSource illustrates, individual expression is the key. Experimentation with distribution, color, texture, materials, and finishes can result in personalized spaces and urban sanctuaries that reflect the most individual of architectural designs. With projects ranging from New York to Paris and everywhere in between, this title provides readers with a comprehensive examination of the exciting changes taking place in today’s loft environment. And with more than 600 full-color illustrations, Lofts DesignSource is sure to become an integral part of every library.

Book News Annotation:

Loft living as an international urban trend can be traced to 1960s New York, according to a Barcelona writer/editor of interior design books. As Caizares' multiple color photos of 89 loft designs illustrate, the concept has evolved into quite diverse forms of the minimalist, industrial living space. Images in the 5.25 x 7.25 " book include brief captions and the architect's name and location.
