Industrial bones meet desert vibes in this downtown Los Angeles loft – set in a converted department store.
Flooded with sunlight from clerestory and sash windows on two sides, and with white stucco walls and bare polished concrete flooring, the one-bedroom Long Beach home sits within a building designed by Meyer and Holler in the 1920s. The structure underwent adaptive reuse and was renamed Walker Lofts in 2002.
The Los Angeles apartment is on the market for $668,000 with Coldwell Banker. Its present owner has channelled desert vibes across the interiors via potted greenery and a hanging buffalo skull which enhance the laid-back, sun-drenched feel in the living space.
Meanwhile warm wooden accents and an olive-green linoleum kitchen soften its industrial backdrop. Towering support pillars and exposed pipework, ducts and cables frame the lofty space.
