Albert Mill Loft – Manchester
October 9, 2011 § Leave a comment
I’m a big fan of large spacious loft conversions, along with wooden features, exposed brick walls and abstract art. This flat has all that. It’s located inside ‘Albert Mill’, a grade II listed building in Manchester. It’s a two bedroom loft, with an open plan kitchen/dining/living area. The building itself looks like an old factory building and has plenty of character. (Click on images to enlarge).
As this place is very open plan, the main designs aspects of the kitchen/dining/living areas are all the same. The room has the original bricked walls and wooden ceiling, complete with beautiful wooden beams. It has a lovely dark wood floor and great big windows. You can see the kitchen and dining area in this photo. There’s not much to the kitchen, just a single line of cupboards and worktops. It’s simple but stylish, and the white really goes with the brick wall. The dining area really compliments the kitchen set-up with the long table lying parallel to it. I love the blue chairs and the small breakfast bar right at the end of the kitchen worktops.
This is the living area. Again, like the kitchen, it’s simple but stylish. The right angled couch helps to make it a cosier space, and separates it from the kitchen and dining area.
The two bedrooms in this property are modern and simplistic. This first bedroom is my favourite. I love the low hanging lights and the unusual chair. I absolutely love the wooden ceiling throughout this property and it stands out to me in this room.
This bedroom appears slightly smaller but is just what you need. I love the two large windows in this room.
Last but not least is the bathroom. This room has no windows, but the lighting they’ve installed keeps it very bright. I’m glad they kept the brick wall in this room as it acts as a great feature wall.
