This loft is in the Old Northside neighborhood of Indianapolis. Built in 1901, the building originally housed the Indianapolis Power & Light Co. The living room featured built-in cabinets and an electric fireplace that didn’t have much style. The homeowners wanted an update and a more modern feel to complement other updates around the home.
- A sleek electric fireplace with remote control access is decorative and functional. It’s installed above the floor for a better view from the sofas.
- The hearth is constructed from quartz and runs the length of the wall and frames the fireplace.
- The hearth features a wide overhang to add depth and mimics the sleek bulkhead above.
- Floating walnut shelves with invisible mounting hardware replaced the dated built-in shelving.
- The homeowners now have a beautiful and functional focal point in their living area.
