I should live in a warehouse. I would have a roller chair at my front door, enter the room, sit down, and roll everywhere. To me, living in a loft warehouse space just invites fun. This 1,600 square foot space is in London and they have taken minimal decorating to the max.
Plywood flooring would be almost indestructible, and large metal windows literally flood the space with light. There is a small outdoor patio and a “work space” that, to me, would make it hard to focus on work.
