Orpheum Lofts, part 2

This is the beautiful art deco lobby of the Orpheum Lofts building that I featured yesterday. When I worked in this building, this was my favorite feature of the building. Maybe someday I can get inside and photograph the fabulous etched steel elevator doors. I have always been a fan of art deco and I always thought this lobby was one of the best examples I’ve found in Phoenix.

I've always liked black and white tiled patterns, esp. if the tiles are large. Nice shot!

I love old building restore as lofts. We have been looking at a condo in the old Federal Mills building here. I don't know why but it just calls me.

I love the art deco period, too. This is a beautiful space and how I'd love to explore it! If you can manage to shoot the elevators, I'd love to see them.

I never had a chance to experience loft living. I always thought it would be so much fun.

That would have been my favourite part of the building too Sharon. Thanks.

I love older buildings! They have redone a few here as lofts, and I do want to check them out.

I'm glad you commented on my blog. I didn't know PDP was around. Sorry. I am up to my ears in things these days. . . .We're going to be moving back west within the next few months, and I have school and all this stuff. AUGH. I love Phoenix. Are you from there originally?

PS. . .I agree with your comment on my blog today. THANK HEAVEN!! Now, let's keep our fingers crossed for November.
