The loft is a multi-residence with space for both to live and work, which was previously a local trade, factory or warehouse and have been turned into housing. It is characterized by its large windows, columns that hold high ceilings and rustic floors.
The loft comes in the 70s in New York, with its epicenter in Soho, as an initiative of students and artists (sculptors, painters and photographers) seeking cheap space to live and work.
Motivated by the affordable rent, they moved to local warehouses andindustrial unemployed. This would allow them to integrate work and housing in one place, at lower cost and with the possibility of having large and illuminated spaces.
