The loft is popular today in the interior design of the old housing stock. This style appeared at the beginning of the twentieth century and came to us from the United States. The first loft-style studio apartments appeared in the legendary Manhattan. At the same time, residential or office spaces in loft design are created by re-equipping attics or industrial zone buildings (abandoned due to higher rental prices for factories and warehouses in the city centre). Very often brick is one of the main materials in this style.
Many people mistakenly think that it is enough to simply clean the walls of old coatings. And here it is, a loft. But in order for the old stone to really look «lofty», a lot of work and qualifications of restorers are required. From clearing to strengthening the reconstituted stone. There is a big difference between carefully restored masonry and “unfinished loft work”.
