The architects of Graux & Baeyens explore the power of shadows in this suave, simple loft design. Located in a formerly-industrial building, the apartment has an unusual arrangement for admitting sunlight: a single wall of tall windows. To reflect light deep into the apartment, the architects covered the floor with gleaming white polyurethane. They also designed curving walls throughout the room and painted them with a fairly neutral shade of taupe. The walls become a serene landscape of shadows that shift throughout the day and become more intense as you move deeper into the apartment.
