Lofts are not a bibliophile’s haven, at least not from the traditional viewpoint. But, wait till your eyes see the interior of the book-filled Toronto attic and then this cliché is going to take a nosedive.
The flat, originally a cheese factory, still keeps its former gusto with all the pipes, brick walls and ductwork of its former life. All these, however, and combined with its high ceiling, give it gritty feeling but in a gorgeous way.
The home’s character and chief attraction is the means by which the occupants have integrated the shelving and how everything else is a display of the passion for travel and books. The biggest of these bookcases, rests on the wall at a recess carved out of a single corner of the living area. Just below this humongous bookcase is a cupboard playing a host into a turntable, a sign passion.
The leading character this layout accomplishes is the way that it easily clears space so the living room and bed room exist in an almost clutter-free atmosphere. This is no mean feat considering the comparatively small size of the loft.
Many storages spaces come from organic nooks that the first design allowed. And, the way the occupants efficiently use these is another reason this attic stands out!
