In St. Petersburg, since 2000, a real boom in loft space has begun. A loft is a former industrial building, attic, or basement converted for living, for a club, bar, or showroom. All loft spaces are United by characteristic features, such as rough, minimalistic interior decoration, open, unpainted brickwork, vintage furniture, high ceilings, unmasked communications. All this creates a kind of charm and color that is so popular in modern culture.
As a rule, in St. Petersburg, loft objects are located in groups at once, since they are located in buildings of former factories or factories: for example, Floors on Ligovsky Prospekt, which was previously a bakery, now it is a 5-storey Art Space with many expositions, original restaurants and cafes. Sevkabel on Vasilievsky island has chosen the territory of the industrial zone, where the current tenants have placed offices, restaurants and exhibition centers, and master classes, mass events and concerts are regularly held.
Golitsyn loft on the Fontanka embankment in a former apartment building contains a lot of art cafes and bars that can be rented for holiday makers or corporate events. Apart from these, throughout many of the informal sites of St. Petersburg is the Catholic Church Annakirche on the street Kirochnaya. There was a fire in the Church building and the parish did not have the funds to restore the Church. Then the leadership took an unprecedented step – concerts, master classes, exhibitions and various art programs that do not contradict the main religious sentiments were allowed to be held in the Church building. Fortunately, the creative public was happy to accept this message, which allows the Church to remain open and receive parishioners.
