A nice little before and after from RAAD Studio. This is the finished product of a New York loft. When you check the before photo below you can see how they broke down the space and highlighted a few features. The brick speaks for itself. Just clean it up and you're ready to go. The ceiling is another gem. You expose it, clean it and incorporate some lighting. It instantly adds some volume and becomes another design element.
Here's a shot of the kitchen before the renovation. Check out the fireplace. I like how they utilized the old firebox, bringing it up to date and making it a focal point of the room.
