What makes a loft smart? This book presents the extraordinary designs of recently completed lofts that highlight three kinds of smart solutions. Through smart technology, a variety of electronic devices attend to your needs while in the loft, and carry on a variety of necessary functions while you're away. Smart materials provide solutions through newly invented building materials and innovative twists on traditional ones. And smart design is used by ingenious architects with difficult design challenges to transcend these problems and create spectacular lofts, often on a very modest budget.
