I am not particularly fascinated by raw brick finishes as I often associate it as a design style used frequently in the past. Recently a friend of mine who is currently renovating his home decided that he would like to finish his interior primarily in the raw brick finish. I must admit that I had my reservations but i was fascinated nonetheless.
But when i came across a review of this stunning San Francisco loft on Freshome, the exquisiteness of the raw brick finish matched with the solid timber flooring and timber lined ceiling. With large windows reaching all the way up to the ceiling, this allows for a great deal of natural light into the home and highlight the character of the raw brick lined walls. I feel that this is a vital component for homes finished internally in raw brick and solid timber.
Consisting of a lower and mezzanine floor, the lower floor houses the living spaces of this home with the living room tucked in a nice cozy corner, the dining area set closer to the back along with the kitchen that’s set just below the mezzanine floor. The mezzanine floor itself hides away the more private area of the home, the master bedroom. The bedroom itself is finished in a similar style as the rest of the house but more fascinatingly is the bathroom that look like they would fit perfectly into a modern contemporary designed home.
My favourite part of this entire home is the view from the landing on the mezzanine floor. Not many homes get to achieve this type of effect in the home and i find the view absolutely in cohesion with the brick lined walls and the timber lined roof, that from the mezzanine level is easy to appreciate the texture and characteristics of the timber.
Apparently, this magnificent 2,200 sq/ft San Francisco loft has been put up for sale through Sotheby’s to the tune of USD1.55 million. And i thought the property market in the United States was in a depressed state. Well, either way the price tag on this home is something I can scant afford but the ideas of this home are still inspirational driving points in home interior design.Image Source: Freshome
