Frank: No! satellite reception cannot be made in lofts or any covered in area as microwaves cannot pass though anything other than thin clear glass.

But though a dish will work perfectly OK even if sitting on the ground so long as it has a reasonably clear East / South Easterly view of the Sky when viewed at an elevation of approximately 25 degrees from the horizontal.
