Lofts are traditionally open spaces, and when Julian King Architect designed these New York lofts, he got creative with building a bedroom and keeping it open. Wanna see how Let’s take a look!
This long and narrow loft is in an 1872 warehouse that opened. A narrow mezzanine was then created on one of the long walls. Usually the bedrooms are placed at the ends of the loft through the windows, but this solution is a very creative and cool idea: the bedroom gets a private area while the loft remains open and retains the natural light that comes in from both sets of windows. An LED light was embedded in the top of the mezzanine, where it casts a soft glow on the ceiling. A long, curved wall covers a staircase that leads to the sleeping area. The wall was cut out to give the bedroom loft the feeling of being open and flooded with light.
The new kitchen is located by the south-facing windows where homeowners can grow herbs, vegetables and plants in pots on the windowsill. To keep the kitchen open, a single steel shelf hangs from the original wall and is used to store wine glasses and bottles.
Behind the rest of the curved wall is the loft’s all-white bathroom. The minimalist space is offset by the bold red pipes. The entrance area only has a curved built-in plywood bench and nothing else.
