It took an architect’s skill to turn a former warehouse-former recording studio into a modern home with an open floor plan, exposed beams, and skylights.

The firm Boyes-Watson did exactly that — with architect Matthew Boyes-Watson carving his initials into the beams. The main living spaces and two bedrooms are on the second floor of this loft-style home at 36 Lopez Ave. in Cambridge. The open layout encompasses the living and dining areas and a kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, and an island. The living room offers access to a deck.

The home, which is on the market for $5,200,000, has four bedrooms, four full baths, and two half baths in 4,830 square feet of living space. The third level features a home office and a master suite (both topped by beamed ceilings) with a deck, a walk-in closet, a steam shower, a tub, and a double vanity.

There’s a family room, a laundry room, a bedroom, a library, and 1.5 baths on the first level.

The attached parking area offers direct access to the home and space for three vehicles. The home sits on 0.06 of an acre.

The listing agent is Lance Greene of Griffin Properties Inc. in Cambridge.
