At under 540 square feet, the 3-Level Loft in Paris, France neatly portrays how small spaces can turn out to be spacious, airy ones. Challenged by the limited floor plan, NZI Architects decided to open up this flat (formerly an artist’s studio) by raising the living room and perching a glass-walled bedroom/operate loft on the top level. The outcome is a bright and charming flat, with a bit of Bohemian appeal.
Exposed brown brickwork, raw stone and heavy steel beams play properly with the exterior wall of windows facing the quaint courtyard which is arranged with planters and a teak wood dining set.
Function is every little thing in this tiny apartment, with the kitchen featuring storage underneath the steep white staircase. Light wood cabinets are framed by a smooth stone countertop, which is simultaneously a cooktop island. This culinary spot shares instant space with the dining region set with contemporary table and chairs. Lighting is kept standard, with bulbs and metal shades on red wires attributing to the arty ambiance.
Two solid methods ascend to the white living space fitted with a floor-to-ceiling bookshelf which follows the elegantly slanted roofline. Walls are left bare, enabling the different performs of art to lean against them. Complete volume drapes run the length of the apartment, making but yet another level of easy sophistication within this intimate dwelling.
On the second level, the bedroom/artist’s studio floats more than the kitchen zone, clad in glass panels which pivot open. An original stone wall adds rich texture to the otherwise minimalist space which manages to fit a operate desk with chair in it, too.
The 3-Level Loft is an appealing, tiny contemporary dream apartment which defies space restrictions with a clever method and artistic energy.
