To further play up the industrial modern cottage vibe in this small beach house, a concrete slab floor and industrial HVAC vent running through the ceiling were left in place.

Among the hallmarks of loft spaces are their size and the visibility of materials that might otherwise be hidden or treated to a smooth finish: metal pipes and ductwork and well-worn wood flooring, for example. Architect May Sung explains how she used these elements to loft-style look: “In this kitchen, we utilized proportion and texture to create interest to the space. The texture of the reclaimed wood juxtaposed next to the industrial element of the table legs created warmth and coziness, emphasized by the over-scaled ceiling pendant.”

This studio was designed as a workspace to create original artwork but also to showcase the client's art, artifacts and personal collections. While most of the furnishings in the room feel industrial, the lighted "Texas" sign brings a bit of folk art whimsy to the space. The rugged table and mismatched chairs provides a working surface for multiple people and projects, and pieces of modern art interjects color into the white room.
