Small houses usually play an important role in childrens games – an imitation of life is turned into a small scale! The project that I’m about to show you contrasts with the conventional design of interior spaces.
‘A Cabin in a Loft’ testifies an alternative and innovative solution for living in Brooklyn. Rather than divide this tiny loft with walls, the architect developed an original concept: a house within another house! Confused? Let me explain… Continue reading
It must be every interior design and architecture oriented person’s dream to once manage to convert a former industrial place into a comfortable living space.
Yes? Certainly yes. The are transformations and transformations, renovations and renovations, make overs and make overs. The exquisite work of Roxane Beis doesn’t fall in these categories. It stands out with the more effortless and natural way. It’s like a fairy of interior architecture and good taste sprinkled with her magic wand above the ex print shop located at Passage Diew in Paris, measuring about 170 sq. meters. Continue reading
I love to discover unique interior spaces that boast highly creative design solutions – especially when it involves reusing or recycling old materials. I mean, why not exercise our minds and be nice to our planet at the same time? I can’t think of anything more noble. The house featured here is an exemplary specimen of that idea. Continue reading
When Lene and Stig found this place, it looked so far off from what you see now, you wouldn’t recognize it at all. It was actually eight small dorm rooms which they turned into one fabulous loft space. Pretty amazing!
What’s more amazing is that they lived there, up in the small attic, during the entire remodel. They started at the bottom and worked their way up. I think when you experience something like that, you develop a strong bond with your space – it’s apparent to me as I view the images. Continue reading
This place is somewhat of a wonderland! It’s impressive, modern, fun and full of volumes and modules. Designed by WORKac, it includes a ground floor, half a basement and a third of a sub basement, which essentially makes it an inverted triplex.
The owners wanted something nontraditional, a flexible loft space that could easily adapt and transform depending on the function of the desired activity, including big dinner parties, fashion shows and you know, other such regular family activities. The result is a space that is ‘whimsical and unexpected’. Continue reading
I was struck by what a good job WORKac did with the unusual layout of this trendy SoHo loft. This well thought out, long narrow space is airy and open and has so much personality.
The ceiling’s highest points are at the front and back of the space in order to maximize light from the windows that are located there. The painted white brick wall is a nice contrast to the opposing dark sleek wall. That dark, bronze coated wall actually serves to organize the space while keeping it streamlined – a really clever solution. Behind/within the wall are the kitchen storage, elevator and entrance doors, bathrooms and a laundry space. Continue reading
Occupying the top floor of a former cold storage facility, this 2,600 sq. ft. loft apartment enjoys urban views of Milwaukee’s skyline. One of the things I like about this modern loft design is its versatility; translucent sliding panels, that can be completely retracted or closed off, blur the edges of the open plan space creating separate private rooms or utilizing the entire space for entertaining. Continue reading
This stylish home is not just a spacious loft, it’s a warehouse conversion of an old factory in the city of Dusseldorf, which miraculously avoided damage during World War II. Beautifully designed around carefully restored period features, this 600 sq. meters loft space now belongs to a couple with a passion for architecture. Continue reading
This amazing creation is a part of a renovation project of an old printing house in Paris. The loft belongs to a couple and their four children, and I must admit I have never seen anything quite like it.
The new 180 sq. meter construction is halfway between a piece of furniture and a building. I am mesmerized by the different window layouts, which are constructed from thick, raw pine wood roughly assembled. This wonderful concept of room dividers connects between a mixture of spaces, allows natural light to filter in, while creating new storage space, bookcases, a desk or simply an opening. Continue reading
Just by looking at it, you’ll notice that this modern loft apartment belongs to an avid art collector. It is situated in a converted TriBeCa loft building, and was once a printing house. Continue reading
