When you think about it, a loft is little more than cement walls, floors, and ceilings. There is all the warmth and individuality of a prison cell. This remarkable book will change those feelings as you pore over page after page of astonishing transformations.

Yes, you need the eye of a designer, the skills of an architect, and the bankroll of Trump to pull of most of these metamorphoses, but that's exactly who this book is aimed at. The ideas presented here were mainly lifted from lofts located in New York.

The book is laid out in five sections: single-level lofts; the use of levels and partitions to create the illusion of space; specially-built pieces and the introduction of color to identify different areas; employing space and light; and finally, unusual conversions.

Cement and cold brick never looked as beautiful as it does here. Plastics and industrial-strength metals, perspex and exposed beams are all employed in creating some of the most outstanding spaces anyone could ever hope to live in.
