Industrial Loft with Living Wall; Chalk Wall; Oil Drum Sink; Copper Tub and more

Industrial lofts can feel overwhelming due to their large size and over height ceilings but by using innovative design details, MARTINarchitects was able to turn Loft is Loft into a cozy and unique space with the help of such design details as a living wall in the dining room, a chalk wall in the kitchen, an oil drum sink in the powder room and a copper tub in the master bath.

Loft is Loft – located in Kieve, Ukraine – still has its original exposed ceiling joists and brick walls and these pre-existing details create the perfect foil for the finished look of this modern industrial loft design by MARTINarchitects.

The living wall separates the dining room from the living room while the kitchen stays connected to both rooms.

The kitchen peninsula features a gas fireplace inset into its backside rather than the usual bar seating.

On one side of the kitchen is the dining room and on the other is a hall that leads to the foyer. This wall begins with a chalkboard wall that is also the back of the powder room which features slate on the floors and walls and an awesome oil drum sink.

The entry door is a bold Ferrari red and is visible from the living room that pops with a second primary colour – yellow. This contrast works because of the liberal use of black and white throughout the industrial loft.

Fun decorative features are also scattered throughout the industrial loft. Examples seen in the above photo is the white chalk Buddha on the dining room’s brick wall and the hanging birdcage chair called the Cageling in the window of the living room.

To keep the industrial loft feeling like an open concept plan, the master bedroom has been separated with a wall of windows that feel more like an exterior wall of glazings rather than an interior wall.

A small office is positioned in the window of what would otherwise be part of the master bedroom, and here too a wall of windows separates the room. Floor to ceiling drapes can be closed for privacy and light control.

Both window sections have been given their own unique function. One is a bird cage overlooking the city; the other is an office with a view to inspire creativity.

On the other side of the master bedroom is the walk-in closet which contains a passage way leading to the master bath.

The master bath is creativity at its best. Continuing the aesthetic of an industrial loft, a stack of crates creates storage on one side of a copper, free standing soaker tub and a swathe of red electrical conduits creates a fun lighting display over the tub.

With a wall of mirrors above the vanity, MARTINarchitects still managed to create the effect of a small feature mirror by hanging a natural wood wreath above the sink.

The carefully orchestrated mess of red electrical conduits for the light display and the seemingly random (but not) stack of crates next to the copper tub give so much presence to the room that you almost don’t even notice the large walk in shower.

“I began my Interior Design career apprenticing with an architectural/engineering firm in Vancouver. I have my Associate of Interior Design from Douglas College; I spent an additional 3 years night school at BCIT studying building technology and 3 years night school at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. This combination of training gives me an all round approach to design from technical to creative and it is that all round approach that makes my design capabilities stand out.
