On the main level, a peninsula separates the kitchen from the living area, while the staircase visually delineates the dining space.

Designer Ramsin Khachi created a new spiral staircase with a more gradual descent, placing it in the middle of the living space (rather than close to the wall) to delineate the dining area and add drama. Stamped-metal dining chairs and a glass barn-style pendant light amplify the industrial vibe of this open-concept loft.

“I used to live in an old cigarette factory, and I just love that style,” says homeowner Adam Wylde, who adores his industrial loft look. In the living area, the vintage teak console – propped up on cement blocks – holds his treasures: an antique radio, vinyl records and a retro tangerine phone (that used to belong to Adam’s grandpa), providing a rare pop of colour.
