Jeff Wardell and Claudia Sagan is a San Francisco couple that loves to travel and collecting art. They live in a 127-foot-long loft. The apartment lies on a north–south axis with large windows at either end. To showcase the art and maximize daylight, they decided to situate the master bedroom at the back, away from the street, but keep everything else open, with a central kitchen and living room and a den facing the street. They hired a local company to sandblast the interior to expose the board-formed concrete walls and replaced the carpeted floors with Georgia hickory pecan planks— the longest, knottiest boards they could find—to further lengthen the loft and make it look more like a warehouse.
So one question they had was: how do they make a home office and a guest bedroom happen without cluttering the space? And their solution was a Container! Something their friends would tell everyone they knew about. Check it out!
