Lofts in Berlin
A stunning series of what will be seven books on the lofts of Northern, Central and Southern European cities.Diversity is the thread running throughout the series: the reader is treated to an immense variety of lofts in a wide range of buildings. They have been converted with great ingenuity and imagination by a new breed of urban dwellers who have embraced the loft-living idyll.Enthusiastically eclectic, importing ideas gathered from travel or reading and using furniture from modern emporiums of design or found in junk shops, these loft dwellers have left the essential character and texture of their buildings intact while layering space in subtle ways so that volumetric grandeur is not lost. This tour gives the reader a glimpse of the inventiveness, vigor and pride employed in creating spectacular dwellings out of amorphous spaces.Beautiful photographs dominate, and the text is deliberately kept to a minimum. Those with a passion for achitecture will be in their element.
