Gallery: London-based William Tozer Designs Inspiring Loft in Old Facto...

 
London-based architect, William Tozer, is one of the many designers producing dynamic residential-loft renovations of old industrial buildings. A trend that has been popular for decades around the world, has gained added steam recently because renovating these old industrial buildings is one way to be eco-minded and sustain urban living without demolishing and building new buildings. Therefore, residential-loft renovations, such as Tozer’s 'Horizontal House', are wonderful examples of how an old factory can turn into a modern work of residential architecture.

The loft’s concrete ceilings, warn by time, are accented by beautiful new timber elements in some rooms and white gallery-esque walls in others. Modern pieces of art now hang on the walls such that the renovated factory doubles as a home and gallery.

Another important aspect to almost all comparable residential-loft renovations is the openness of the floor plan. The space is designed with built-in furniture, an en suite bathroom, and pocket doors, all of which add to the loft’s expansiveness. Wonderful views from wide windows extend from all corners of the apartment, and daylight matriculates into several rooms – a particularly welcome component for any dwelling in grey London.
