Once an artist’s studio space, it’s fitting that this Budapest loft is now home to a businessman with a keen interest in all things arty. Boasting excellent views of the city through the fantastically broad warehouse-style windows, this apartment epitomizes industrial city living at its very best. Let’s take a look inside.
This bachelor pad, complete with exposed brick work and polished concrete floor, is the quintessential industrial style loft. We particularly love the bold use of dark colors, which make for a rich and refined aesthetic.
When the apartment is lit at night, shadows and shapes transform the whole ambiance of the place. The shadows that play against the walls only serve to give the bare bricks even more of a rugged texture.
Measuring almost 4×4 meters across, the enormous windows let in huge amounts of light. It affords the flat the ability to own stronger and deeper colors without feeling dingy.
The designer has perfectly angled the armchair to take in the daylight and city view. With a few cushions, the owner can also convert the window ledge into seating too.
Rather than using walls to box in the kitchen, the living room area is set on a higher platform, accessible by just a few steps. There is a simple partition with plants tucked in between, in addition to a secret spot for a cocktail bar.
The lighting above the dining table is quite different and unusual, with its caged box look. Given the height of the ceilings, it doesn’t look out of place – in fact, it looks fascinating set against the cuboid geometry of the kitchen cabinets.
The apartment has two bedrooms, and a bathroom for each. We like the way the doors match the wall, blending in seamlessly with the color and texture. The art is eye catching and matches the style and colors seen throughout the rest of the apartment.
In the master en-suite bathroom, emerald marble colors and dark black features create a masculine and refined overall look.
The track lighting in the master bedroom, inset within the black paint of the dropped ceiling and matching the area behind the bed’s headboard, is all part of the art and design of the room. Another signature light feature in this room is the gold photographic tripod floor lamp.
The guest bedroom makes use of an awkward space, maintaining a strong cohesion of the masculine color palette seen in other areas of the home.
Overall, this Budapest loft is a fantastic space, made even more impressive by the various lighting elements. It’s fast become a much-loved retreat for the home owner, who loves to use the space for hosting parties and dinner with friends. After all, who needs candles when there is already such a pretty blend of lights?
