Meet The Team Behind 201 Lofthaus


In an instant – everything changed. Picture this: a typical Monday afternoon, the clock ticking away, when suddenly, the phone rang. It was the call we had been eagerly anticipating for months. The news hit us like a tidal wave, sending a surge of emotions through our veins. We were cleared to officially close on what is now known as 201 Lofthaus, a breathtaking content Haus nestled in the heart of the city. Excitement, disbelief, and, let’s be real here, a tinge of fear and anxiety flooded our thoughts. But amidst it all, we knew deep down that this was the beginning of a truly remarkable journey. So, let’s hit the rewind button for a moment and allow us to introduce you to the incredible individuals behind the scenes of 201 Lofthaus.

Hi there, friend! We are Novi and G.O., partners in both life and creativity. With over 18 years of partnership experience, A.K.A. marriage, we have honed our ability to bring ideas to life with seamless synergy. Nope, it’s definitely not easy working with your life partner, but it’s beyond rewarding. We also get the honor of being parents to our young entrepreneur in the making, our beautiful daughter. I’m sure you’ll get to meet her in a future post.

Joined by our talented and creative friend, Randy Padora, serving as our Creative Director, we form a cohesive unit dedicated to providing an exceptional experience at 201 Lofthaus.

Our Story: How We Created 201 Lofthaus

It all began many years ago when Randy and Novi crossed paths in the corporate world. They worked side by side as professional development managers, coaching and mentoring others on building their professional brands, leading successful teams, and achieving their goals. It was in this dynamic environment that their friendship took root. They quickly discovered their shared values, a passion for helping others, and a burning desire to share their creative gifts with the world.

201 Lofthaus was born out of the necessity many entrepreneurs face – the need for a space that inspires creativity. It all started one day as Novi was preparing for a photo shoot for another venture. While searching for the best shooting locations, inspiration struck her. She thought, “Why not create a space that is always beautifully styled and readily available for creatives to bring their visions to life?”

Together, we embarked on a mission to create 201 Lofthaus, a beautifully styled content Haus curated to look and feel like home. The unique blend of Novi’s business-savvy mindset, Randy’s creative flair, and G.O.’s craftsmanship and experience working on production sets paved the way for an exceptional space that would empower fellow creators.

And just like that, the dream team behind 201 Lofthaus was formed. Randy, Novi, and G.O. brought their unique talents, expertise, and unwavering commitment together to create a haven for content creation. Their collective energy, passion, and desire to make a difference in the lives of others continue to fuel their journey.
