Welcome to our gallery featuring the Decadent “Alte Wollgarnfabrik” Old Yarn Factory Loft Project by BERLINRODEO.
As the title implies, this space was an old yarn factory in Berlin that has been overhauled and re-envisioned as loft spaces.
Small subtleties like the exposed brickwork in the living room and cathedral-like ceilings in the bathroom, made possible by the historically tall floor spaces within the yarn factory, remind the viewer of the history in this space and invites you to embrace it.
The floor to ceiling window spaces supply a bright tone to the rooms and accentuate the darker tones of the wood floor and furnishings, such as the coffee tables of the living space in the picture above.
The loft is economical in its space usage as well, as the dining and living room are technically composed of the same space but are separated by a delicate metal wall.
The use of storage is a unique aspect of the bathroom, integrating the storage cabinets and towel shelves into the aesthetic of the room. This works to make the storage feel like another aspect of the design and doesn’t clutter the space.
The art within the loft is tastefully arranged, with most of the house maintaining a neutral palette from creamy whites to bright tan hues. But the artwork adds a burst of color to a room, which is especially evident in the dining area. The room is neutral, contrasted by the walnut of the floor, but the painting on the wall, framed in white and predominately orange, adds a sense of juxtaposition.
We hope you enjoy this selection as much as we did!

Looking into the living room, we notice the rich tones of the hardwood floor that boast a sedona red finish. The old-style charm is evident in the exposed brick of the far right corner, adding a playful undertone of the building’s history.
Looking from the living room into the dining area, we see the way this loft monopolizes on available space. The bedroom is hidden away behind the ornately decorated metalwork wall seen in the center of this photo. White lilies to the far right brighten the room and helps the transition into the dining space.
From the dining table itself, you notice the modern styling of the see-through ghost chairs. Looking closer at the metalwork of the wall, you begin to notice the intimate floral details in the design, which are perpetuated by the potted plants against the far wall.
Behind the dining space, we find a lavishly adorned king-sized bed fitted with rich umber and byzantium tones. You almost wouldn’t notice, but this room is teeming with storage solutions. The space maintains its modern aesthetic for the storage spaces on either side and they tend to seem hidden within the design.
This robin egg blue chair embodies a modern approach to it’s curvatures and appearance, but it also represents, in a sense, a modern take on a mid-century modern aesthetic, reflecting the old-meets-new ideology behind this loft.
Upon entering this space, the real birch branch towel hooks are the the first thing you notice. The light but welcoming tones of the bark lend an earthy tone to this bathroom and the birch print wallpaper on the left side mirrors the natural theme.
The second bathroom has a very open feel thanks to the high ceilings. You can see the angle from the roof and the use of ledges in the upper spaces of the room allow the lighting and shadowing to play a part in the feel of the room.
