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