We recently shot a small industrial building in Little Portugal. It used to be a small factory that was transformed into a live-work space by Downey Design's Kevin Downey.
The project is interesting in the way only the outer shell of the building was preserved in order to keep the original form, yet, allow for dramatic open spaces on the inside.
The building is home to Arts and Labour design studio. This live-work space is stunning through its simplicity and brightness, as there isn't a time of the days when the space is not filled with natural light.
Natural light is a key component of the design and every space ends up being very bright and pleasant to experience. Sometimes it is all that's needed to make an otherwise plain space exceptionally cheerful. Add to the mix an exceptional art and design furniture collection and you get a unique space reflecting the personality of its owner.
We would like to thank Arts and Labour for letting us shoot the space and publish it.
