In the residential segment housing the elite class in recent years, there is another option unformatted housing.
Historically, this type of housing was aimed at creative professionals who prefer a large open area of ??sufficient affordable price. Apartments-lofts first appeared in Europe and housed in the attic and the upper floors of commercial buildings and factories. In connection with such its location and the services they were worth at least a little bit and have attracted the attention of students, artists and people of other creative professions. The word loft translated to English means nothing, as the upper floor of an industrial building.
After some time, flat-lofts were in demand among the affluent. Standing apart from the large spacious room apartment began to attract attention and developers, who subsequently withdrew this option in the market as an exclusive housing.
In Moscow, the most popular project in this style is still the project of State Development, known as the "arthouse". Apartments "arthouse" the architect himself calls the neo-loft. Because of the lofts they had taken only part of the architectural ideas and solutions.
"Arthouse" consists of two buildings, which total 30 apartments. Since the construction of an object is used clinker brick, the building itself will resemble the image of an industrial enterprise. The architect himself calls the project Sergey Skuratov sculptural monument, which has no analogues in the world.
By placing "neo-lofts" selected the central district of Moscow, Tessinsky lane. In addition to the residential sector in the complex is designed restaurant, a gallery of art and it is possible that the ground floor will house artists' studios.
Another important point in the project is the ceiling height, which surpassed even the height of the penthouses. In "neoloftah" ceiling height ranges from 5 to 9 meters, and the area of ??apartments will start from 80 square meters. The cost of apartments in this complex range from 15 to 20 thousand dollars per square meter, and today about 40% of housing in the complex sold.
