Live & Work Loft in Minneapolis

Live & Work Loft in Minneapolis

Graphic Designers Will Hopkins and Mary K. Baumann gave up their apartment in the Apthorp building on the Upper West Side and moved into a converted flour mill in downtown Minneapolis. The New York Times shows us how the couple and their architect, Geoffrey Warner, transformed two basement apartments into a well-lit live/work space with plenty of character...

One of our favorite features: casters were attached to a pair of Room & Board tables and they rest in a 50-foot floor track. The tables can be quickly moved from dining room to office.

Notice how the ceiling gently curves to create a "cloud" effect.
