A sink with steel legs is situated outside the mirror box and is separated from the bed by a black steel clothes bar suspended from the ceiling, as well as a drapery of the same length as the room height, which can be used to separate the bedroom from the rest of the loft.

The staircase with railing inserted between loft levels is subtle, black and made of steel.

The loft is illuminated by distinctive pendant chandeliers hanging above the bed and dining table in combination with flush technical line lighting and spotlights.

The project of the loft interior was a solitary and refreshing assignment accentuating raw esthetics and reflecting the character of the industrial location and object, as well as the persona of the client.
