Modern Loft with a Beautiful and Practical Design

By • Jul 6, 2018

This fantastic loft, with high walls made of brick and concrete, was recently renovated in order to more closely fit the wants and needs of a young and single client. It was crucial that it fit perfectly, especially taking into consideration that the space was rented, and that, in the future, the furniture would be reutilized somewhere else. This is why the furniture, for the most part, was chosen in accordance with each of the spaces in the home.

The project was undertaken by architectural firm treszerosete in 2017, and was specifically led by experienced professionals André Britto, Caio Ferraz and Kamal Yazbek.

It is located in the popular city of São Paulo in Brazil. It covers a total area of 80 square meters, which is not bad at all when we consider that the apartment is occupied by a single person.

Access to the apartment is characterized by a small hallway that limits its use. This is why a bookshelf design that could transmit the personality of the resident through the personal objects—apart from being able to establish a clear order for objects of daily use—was chosen.

The bookshelf at the entrance to the apartment moves through to the stairs, and together—staircase and bookshelf—create a space that allows for concentration and hard work. This was, indeed, as it was requested by the client themselves.

The lower level is the common area, and was designed to receive many people. This is also true for the balcony area, which was designed to help with reunions and gatherings, as the people seated there can easily move to the living room.
