As the downtown Los Angeles loft scene continues to explode, the client has purchased two stacked units in a converted factory building. The desire is to use this double height to its best advantage, creating a large open space in the entry. This thirty-something couple loves art, leans towards the modern, but likes to incorporate Eastern elements. Kitchen needs plenty of room for cooking and loitering, bedrooms need privacy and playfulness. The challenge? Re create an elevated NYC fire escape for the city-raised gal, and an "outdoor shower" for the Cali-born dude. Oh, and they do love some silly wallpaper in the loo.
