The Pape Loft Is Born Inside a Converted Church in Toronto

The Pape Loft resides inside a quirky church conversion project in Toronto that’s broken up into multi-story lofts. StudioAC was brought on board by the owners of this loft to help create a more minimalist way of living through a renovation and with less furnishings overall.

The loft spans 1,143-square-feet with a double-height living room that features a curved balcony above in the same material as the light wooden floors. The curvy element helps keep the interior light and feeling larger than it actually is while creating a feeling of continuity and intimacy.

The kitchen was moved in order to keep the main floor fully open so it’s tucked away in a niche. The cabinets fall in the minimalist vein with no adornment and a light wooden finish that mirrors the flooring.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is situated behind glass panels, separating it from the home office while allowing natural light to still enter.
