A Melbourne Warehouse converted into a real mans loft



This could be one of the most perfect lofts I have seen in a long time (well apart form the amazing white loft in Italy my all time design hero Paola Navone designed of course) These are pictures from a former warehouse in Melbourne, Australia.

Furniture retailer and design aficionado John Parker has lived here for nearly 12 years, having originally purchased the warehouse as a shell (it was once an old army drill hall).  He left it as raw as he could and lived without a kitchen for five years. Loving the idea that the loft is kind of a blank canvas for his furniture and other stuff. The loft is filled with all kind of furniture, art and boys toys as a vespa, sportscar and bikes. Incredible space if you ask me.

Wow, what a cool and urban loft! I love the details such as the kilim rugs, the quirky details such as the faux cactus or plane as well as the bike - so rad!
