My ultra-unique artist’s loft was built in 1878. This beautiful, historical building originally had shops and a general store. My loft is located on the very top floor of the building in the vibrant neighborhood of Pilsen. The loft has been kept mostly to its original state, with over 1,050 ft. of open space and a 10 ft. high ceiling. Within this space you will find yourself submerged in the beautiful exposed brick, original pine floors, and dining windows with a stunning skyline view of the city. The extraordinarily long bathroom has mahogany floors, a claw foot tub, and an old barber’s sink. The dining room table is a 125 year old thrashers table. The windows are adorned with dark velvet teal curtains. Within the loft you will find a tall, 1930's, antique radio, a mid-century modern piano with sheet music from the 1920's, antique musical instruments, an antique lightning rod, a WW1 prop propeller, the owner's original artwork, beautiful, vintage brass Stiffel lamps, along with an eclectic mix of Boho and Mid-Century, furniture - in addition to many other unique accents - (shown in the photos). The building is unassuming on a very quiet side street in Pilsen, and is also one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood. This private and discreet location is perfect for photo shoots, filming, and video. This building is located on a quiet side street with very little, to no traffic. If you are looking for a true, vintage, Pilsen loft with an artist's touch? This is the space. The entire experience is intimate and extraordinarily unique. There are many interesting nooks and objects within the space to use in photo and video shoots. A professional singer just recorded his new music video in my space and they loved it!
Metered parking is available right around the corner on Ashland, and also on 18th Street (one block north of my street. If someone is bringing a car full of equipment I may be able to give them my spot, if requested 24 hours in advance. Street parking passes coming soon!
*My place is located in a non-smoking building. This also includes marijuana and vaping. There will be a $500.00 fine for smoking inside of the loft or any other part of the building. You will be charged by PeerSpace with the credit card you have on file. We like to maintain a very healthy, welcoming, and clean environment for all. *For damage - We understand that accidents happen, but we do require that all guests inform us if anything is damaged during their use. You will be charged by PeerSpace with the credit card you have on file for any major damages. *Please respect the other tenants and control your noise levels. We encourage you to be comfortable and play music, but please be mindful that other people live in the building. *We understand that you might need to use different equipment for your needs. Please do not use any tape on the original pine floors. *Use of drugs, vaping, or alcohol are strictly prohibited and will result in immediate removal from the property, and a non-refundable fine of 250.00. All renters are 100% responsible for their guests. *Per PeerSpace's policy, overtime will be billed in half-hour increments. The space must be vacated and all items brought into the space must be removed by the end time of your booking reservation. (I allow grace periods - see below). Overtime will be billed in half-hour increments at a rate of 1.5 times our stated hourly rate. *All booking start and end times are inclusive of setup and tear down time. This means you should figure in the time you need for setup in the beginning and cleanup at the end into your booking. I allow organizers to arrive 10 minutes before their booking begins and a grace period of 15 minutes following the end of your booking. Anything after that will incur overtime fees. (Special exceptions will be made, due to uncontrollable circumstances). *Creativity is encouraged. If models plan to use body oil, please have them bring a separate cloth/throw to protect the fabric. Thank you! *Client/Renter is responsible for the loft itself during the stay. Any loss, damage, or theft of any of the aforementioned properties is the sole responsibility of the Client/Renter, and they will be charged for the amount of the replacement/repair immediately. All items within the loft are photographed and logged, prior to rental. *All Clients/Renters must leave the loft in the condition they found it. Guests must respect the space and we ask that guests tidy up after themselves. Everything should be left in the same way you found it. *Entrance doors to the building must remained locked at all times. Once you are inside of the building you will not be able to go in-and-out, due to building safety. This is for the safety and security of all guests and other building tenants. The building does not have a buzzer. The host will come and let you inside of the building through the front entrance, via a text from you upon arrival. When your booking has ended the host will come to the loft and walk you down to the door. For your security, if any guest/renter leaves during the booking time and leaves an entrance door unlocked or open, a $250.00 fine will be issued to the renter. We highly value the safety and security of all guests, in addition to the other tenants. *Due to the heavy salt on the streets and sidewalks during the winter, we ask that you remove your shoes upon entering the loft. The salt is also damaging to the original, restored, pine floors. Thank you! *The host has many other bookings and work obligations during the day and will not be able to allow guests into the building until 10 minutes prior to their booking. We certainly don't want you standing in the cold during the winter weather. *Please use caution and care when moving or using any of the vintage items. We are excited to share our vintage decor with you and we encourage you to use the items within your photos, and as props. Most of the items are irreplaceable. Theft of any items will result in a fine, comparable to the value of the item. Be creative and treat all objects as if they were your own. Please do not move the piano. *Please message me 15 minutes prior to your photo session so that I can meet you at the entrance door when you arrive - (up to 10 minutes prior to your booking time). *The number of guests is approved prior to the rental. Additional guests cannot be added after the booking, due to safety and security reasons. Please make sure that you know how many guests will be in attendance. If you need to add any additional guests you may contact the host prior to the booking. ***We want everyone to use their creativity in the space. If you would like to move any furniture please let the host know upon arrival. I live in the space, so please treat it as if it were your own. If scratches are made to the original pine floors it will result in a 500.00 repair fee, which will be charged to the card you have on file with PeerSpace. (felt pads have been placed under all furniture to prevent scratching the floor).
