So, I recently flickr stalked an old acquaintance of mine. We used to work in the same building. She’s an industrial designer, so we had a mutual professional respect, but didn’t know each other that well. I discovered on her flickr page that she lives in an uber cool warehouse loft. I won’t post her photos, but it started me thinking again about the possibility of living in a warehouse. Then I found this place:
It is a 10,000 warehouse, 5,000 feet on the first floor that would be a good storefront or storage and the upstairs is shown above. The curved roof and the amazing light from those windows drew me in. So, my husband and I did the proverbial drive by. The outside of this building is SCARY. It is a former tattoo parlor, whose proprietors encouraged graffiti artists to tag the building. I don’t have a problem with graffiti in all situations, I just don’t want it on my house. For the sake of my fantasy, let’s pretend the outside looks like this:
And the living room looks like this:
Some industrial shelving:
A stunning office:
Ugh, so inspiring. Perhaps someday.
