TOY LOFT GETS SOME LOVE FROM LATIMES by Apurva Pande

So happy to see one of our really special loft projects — Toy Loft — get a feature from the Los Angeles Times. Loved vicariously revisiting the design process while reading the story.

After purchasing, Terence and Yu crafted their vision for the loft on several Pinterest boards and scoured the internet for Los Angeles loft conversions. There they found CHA:COL, the firm of award-winning husband-and-wife architecture team Apurva Pande and Chinmaya Misra, who have a reputation for innovative loft design.

Looking forward to seeing Writer's Block in print with the French magazine Architectures A Avivre. Thank you for the thoughtful piece. And yes, we maximized our rudimentary reading skills in French successfully :)
