A collaboration with interior designer Petra Richards, this downtown urban loft remodel ranges in texture from rough and gritty to smooth and refined. The owner, a single mom and entrepreneur (and Porsche racer) wanted a space that her grown daughters could visit that combined rich materials with light, open spaces. Further, she wanted a contrast of rough industrial finishes coupled with softer more refined touches; the distressed plaster wall in the living room picks up the tones of the blued steel fireplace surround. To better use the existing space a walk-in closet and hallway were converted into a library/guest room with adjoining ¾ bath. Arch11 designed several clever solutions to maximize space in the bedroom: the bed features a luxe upholstered headboard with illuminated slide-out shoe storage, and a custom wardrobe spans one wall to provide ample storage space.
