Marmol Radziner Architects recently renovated a 2,000 square foot industrial loft in a 1924 warehouse in downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District. The homeowner requested a bachelor pad that was both simple and sophisticated where he could entertain guests and the result is a spacious home with a cozy, grey and black color palette.
The layout was restructured by removing unnecessary walls to create four new spaces defined by custom casework. The living room was raised onto a platform and covered with grey oak herringbone flooring. The rest of the loft kept the original raw concrete floors.
Two vintage lounge chairs, a daybed, ottomans, and a large sofa anchor the cozy, comfortable living room.
The dining room houses a large walnut table with a blackened steel base, along with black leather Cassina Cab chairs.
The kitchen is outfitted with custom black cabinets that helped define the new open layout. The backsplash behind the sink was tiled in contrasting white subway tiles.
The second bedroom was removed to make way for one large master bedroom suite that features a sitting area. Blackout curtains allow for better sleeping or movie viewing.
