Contemporary Loft Interior Design

The end of an Interior 12 years later.

Contemporary Loft is an Interior Design and Turnkey management project. The unit was design and built 12 years ago. Due to the age of the occupants,  after 12 years of enjoyment, finally it came to an end, as a result our clients for this apartment moved to another city.
They sold the condo and moved with the furniture, certainly realized they were all classic  contemporaries and high quality pieces. Above all we wish them well, both the clients for the use, similarly the furniture!
We don’t know what the new owners will retain, perhaps the layout, ceiling height, built-ins, shell finishes and lighting, the kitchen and bathrooms, seems like they are all still new. Finally if their taste is different they will gut it all down and start from scratch!

CONTEMPORARY  LOFT. Interior Design by Jerry Jacobs Design. Description.


The project is situated at the Campestre Golf Club in Monterrey, Mexico.

Monterrey is a couple of hours drive from Texas and is the most Industrialized City of Mexico, with about 5 million people. For many years the “Colonia del Valle” a suburb in a secluded Valley by the Sierra Madre has been the enclave for Industrialists and their families, with its own million-dollar membership fee Golf Club and home to several corporate headquarters, it is one of the top per capita suburbs in the country.

            The Building is a new 20-story high-rise, the single residential tower on the edge of the Golf Course, which offers views of the Sierra Madre, the “Cerro de la Silla” (Saddle Mountain), and the Golf Course.


            I had done two other homes for the family, one in the Mexican Caribbean Riviera, the other in the Tobacco growing Jungle of Veracruz, Mexico, where the family’s hand made Cigars business is located. The hometown schools were not adequate for the two daughters now 21 and 22 so they went away to high school in London, and returned to College in Monterrey, which is an also excellent college town.

A full floor apartment of about 4500 sq. ft. was available in the new building, and they asked me to meet them at the site, and do the job.

            The Girls had enjoyed European contemporary design and requested a Loft type layout and the use of Wood and Glass.


            The Study or work area is incorporated into the Main Space with Library, Living and Dining room areas all in one. The kitchen is open (Glass enclosed) to the Main space as well. The Master bedroom is for the two girls to share, while a Pied-a-Terre with two small bedrooms and a seating area is provided for the parents an elder brother, or guests.

Glass covered columns. Sandblasted tempered glass covers the structural columns of the Main spaces. A glass doorway is provided for the elevator entry.

            Glass tile at the walls and butcher-block countertops in matching colors are used in all bathrooms. While consistency was part of the palette, a different color was chosen for each bedroom tying the room fabrics and bath materials, for the girl’s suite in purples and blues, the parents’ is red and the guest’s is black.

The roman sheers and shades are all motorized due to their lengths up to 28’x12’

The bookcase (27’ x10’) with rolling ladder produced in California, together

with all the furniture, and equipments was containerized and shipped for a Turn-Key six month completion time, from meeting to move in.

            Wood floors. The floors are washed oak diagonally placed to direct the main entrance flow towards the outward corner view.

Twelve years is not a long time for a Classic Contemporary, nor is it unusual for people to move! The project featured in Architectural Digest and the Andrew Martin International yearbook.

Thank you to my clients. I tremendously enjoyed the process.
