We have a soft spot for converted homes. Be it a former bunker turned into an edgy art-filled pad, a barn transformed into a family entertaining space, or a school reimagined as a modern house, the opportunity to get creative with how you define the word "home" is always inspiring. One of the most prevalent examples of this is, of course, the loft. A former shop, warehouse, or factory converted into a living space, lofts always have interesting backstories. Live in New York's Meatpacking District? Maybe you're living at an old butcher's shop. Live downtown? Maybe you're sleeping in what was a designer shoe factory. Man, that's cool.
We've been toying with the idea of moving to a loft recently, so why not take a look back at some of our favorites? Click each photo below to see more these cool lofts.
