English translation:Lofts
Explanation:
In US cities this is a very common (and in many cases, desireable) type of apartment. They are generally on the top floor of a building used for other purposes, usually consisting of a single large room. Where I live, it's not uncommon for a loft to be well over over 1000 sq. ft (app. 100 m2).
