Vignes Street Loft

Designed for a lawyer and an artist, the 5,200 square foot loft is located in a portion of the shell of a former dairy in downtown Los Angeles.

Selected panes in the loft’s original windows have been sandblasted, providing privacy as well as framing desirable views while obscuring others.
The integrity of the original space has been enhanced through the careful use of new elements and materials. The introduction of ideas from subatomic physics, mathematics and alchemy, the anechoic entry chamber, and the manipulation of light through skylights and graded obscure glass, reinforces the idea that experiences take precedence over abstract order.
