The Loft is 280 sqm (3000ft) and occupies two storeys in a former factory. The “open room” concept acknowledges the loft character. A central “Service Box” with integrated sliding doors allows the loft to be subdivided without the need for conventional hallways or rooms. The zones “living” and “sleeping/bathing” can be alternately opened or closed.
Our design idea was to capt the existing multi-directional natural light exposure of an open space by giving to all resulting “rooms” all day long the benefice of it.
