Solarium

New York style loft studio with white cyclorama

About

Solarium

The Solarium is a beautiful studio addition to Preto Loft, inspired by light minimalistic tones, natural textures and soft fabrics. Bright white floors and ceilings create a contrast with black trusses and oversized New York loft-style windows. The room is filled with bright natural light throughout the entire day, from sunrise to sunset due to its South-facing windows.  We’ve minimized the floor shadows in the room by raising the floors with a podium, added some greenery and curated unique modern furniture pieces to provide a variety of different vignettes.

STUDIO FEATURES

  • Dreamy cyclorama against the back wall—the perfect white backdrop in a naturally bright place.
  • A beautiful white podium with curtains on both sides that can be moved to cover the cyclorama or used as a backdrop against the creamy textured wall
  • A fresh white wall that is perfect for headshots and branding photography!
  • A white bench that can be used for standing against the large New York-style windows.
