Loft-style buildings are in great demand among tenant companies. This architectural solution originated in New York, in the 50s of the twentieth century.
In favor of the popularity of Loft-style offices is the ability to make the most of natural light. The buildings that previously occupied plants and factories have high ceilings and large window openings. Ventilation was carried out in the premises, which allows creating a favorable microclimate. Then land prices in one of the largest cities in America - New York - began to rise sharply. The owners of enterprises and factories decided to move production facilities to the outskirts of the city. The empty buildings gradually began to be occupied by bohemians, creative people. They opened their own workshops and exhibitions in the buildings of former factories.
Currently, the areas that were previously occupied by factories are being converted into office premises. They also have restaurants and cafes, concert venues or exhibition centers. Each company will be able to choose for themselves an attractive option and rent on reasonable terms. In the northern capital, Lofts are located in different areas - Petrogradskiy, Centralniy and others. Their advantage is transport accessibility. Some buildings are located in the immediate vicinity of subway stations or public transport.
The most famous creative spaces reconstructed from the past are the spinning and weaving factory named after Peter Anisimov, now referred to as the Weavers and the hosiery knitting factory of Kessten on the red cadet street. Today, for modern companies, creative thinking requires appropriate conditions for business development, therefore, heads of organizations give loft-style premises more and more preferences when choosing an office rental. Today’s management is designed in such a way that for the growth of profits, employees should be as interested in the workplace as possible, an ultra-comfortable workspace is needed. That is why business representatives have such a high interest in this segment of business centers.
