Nestled on the edge of a commercial district next to a prominent neighborhood in downtown Columbia, this 2400 sq ft Private Residence is a manifestation of the owner’s dreams for an industrial loft space within walking distance of their favorite city destinations. The owners wanted a simple, open floor plan with multiple connections to the outdoors, hearkening back to their roots in South Africa. The main space of the house is a 2 story, open kitchen, dining, living, and loft space – perfect for both entertaining or spreading out homework on the large, 16’ concrete kitchen island. The living space is separated from the bedrooms by 2 large custom barn doors. The bedroom portion of the house is organized around a central laundry room (the owners were tired of hauling laundry through their previous, multi-story historic home) which creates an open, pass through to the two bedrooms, bathrooms, and walk in closets.
