Loft Style Living

Loft Style Living

New York is a home for the first loft-style apartments. Generally, it's a large, open space, mostly without any internal walls which were once commercial or industrial buildings, and eventually converted into residential apartments. These days you can find loft-style apartments all over Philadelphia neighborhoods. The most common areas are Old City, Northern Liberties and Brewerytown. 

What to love about them?

  • Open space. Traditional lofts usually have a minimum of 1,600 square feet with few interior walls, which allows to have custom-degifned floor plans.

  • Exposed walls, air conditioning ducts, or fire sprinkler lines. That's what give it unfinished look!Image title

  • High ceilings. Most lofts have ceilings that are 10 feet or higher. You can see exposed piping, ventilator tubes, exposed ceiling beams.

  • Authentic 19th century materials. The use of concrete or wooden floors, tin ceilings, brick or thick plaster walls is common.Image title

  • Floor to ceiling windows. Since old industrial buildings were built before the invention of electric lights, there are so much of natural sunlight!
