The Pape Loft resides inside a quirky church conversion project in Toronto that’s broken up into multi-story lofts. StudioAC was brought on board by the owners of this loft to help create a more minimalist way of living through a renovation and with less furnishings overall.
The loft spans 1,143-square-feet with a double-height living room that features a curved balcony above in the same material as the light wooden floors. The curvy element helps keep the interior light and feeling larger than it actually is while creating a feeling of continuity and intimacy. It’s a unique detail created by the designers right for this home, it makes a stylish statement and an airy feeling in the space.
The color scheme is mostly neutral, with just a couple of touches of saturated colors like brown leather. The decor is minimalist, which helps the space feel clean and airy and fills it with light. Wood and rugs make the spaces comfortable and cozier. The kitchen was moved in order to keep the main floor fully open so it’s tucked away in a niche. The cabinets fall in the minimalist vein with no adornment and a light wooden finish that mirrors the flooring. There’s a dining zone here, just a set of chairs and a table done in the same wood. Upstairs there’s another sitting room with a leather sofa, a chair and a coffee table. The master bedroom is situated behind glass panels, separating it from the home office while allowing natural light to still enter.
