Good Questions: What Does "Loft" Mean?

Pin it button big

Hello AT,

What makes a space a "loft"? Is it high ceilings? Abundance of windows? That the space is one big volume?

Lately, I've seen the word "loft" thrown around to decribe just about anything - even a 500 sq ft studio.

To me, a loft is something like Demi Moore's loft in "Ghost".

Thanks, Alvin
