Located in a former Brooklyn factory, this loft’s gracious, 12-foot ceilings had been hidden by four feet of drop ceiling. The clients—parents of a family of four—initially asked architect Alex Delaunay, founder and principal of SABO project, to simply expand the bathroom.
Morten Bo Jensen, the chief designer at Vipp—whose headquarters are located in Islands Brygge—and his partner, graphic designer Kristina May Olsen, bought a loft space in the former Viking pencil factory two years ago, once they’d outgrown their old apartment in Copenhagen’s gritty, bohemian Nørrebro district.

To revamp their loft in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood, a family enlisted Matthew Miller of StudioLAB.

When opera singer Ainsley Ryan and Goldman Sachs VP Chris Showalter took over a fixer-upper loft in a former Ex-Lax factory in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, they decided to, quite literally, think outside the box.

Stockholm-based NOTE Design Studio was approached by a family of four who’d just purchased a 2,150-square-foot loft in the city’s Södermalm district. To inform the color palette for this interior renovation in Stockholm, NOTE Design Studio began with three inspirational images. “We let our gut feelings lead us,” says architect Susanna Wåhlin. They chose a picture of a woman in a cashmere coat (for its softness and style), a plaza in Rome (for its timelessness), and a pair of sand-colored sneakers (for its laid-back connotation).
