A Caviar Warehouse Converted Into A Loft By Andrew Franz Architect

The architect’s description In Manhattan’s landmarked Tribeca North area, the 3,000-square-feet top floor and roof of an 1884 caviar warehouse are reconceived as a residence with large open entertaining zones and a fluid connection with the outdoor environment. Outdoor Connection – The residence is transformed by a relocated mezzanine where a sunken interior court with a retractable glass roof connects to the planted green roof garden above. This gesture of subtracting volume from the interior brings the outdoors into the primary living zones.

The roof, peeled back, showers the spaces with natural light. An Industrial Interior For This Loft Apartment In Seattle. SHED Architecture & Design have completed the remodel of a loft in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle, Washington.

An Industrial Interior For This Loft Apartment In Seattle

The designer’s description SHED Architecture & Design, based in Seattle, recently completed a custom crafted urban remodel of a 1,702-square-foot Capitol Hill loft. The award-winning 1310 East Union Building designed by the Miller Hull Partnership for Seattle-based developers, Dunn + Hobbes, accommodates eight loft-style condominiums with big views of the surrounding neighborhood. The client, a young couple who work nearby, came to the firm with an original layout that did not harmonize with everyday living patterns; an exposed entry way, lack of storage and oversized hallway left no place to hide. The main challenge was to add functional elements to the space that blended with the building’s original palette of concrete floors, zinc plated pan-decking ceiling, and blackened steel beams and railings. Piet Boon brings "Dutch design" to Huys apartments in New York.

Piet Boon brings "Dutch design" to Huys apartments in New York

The Park Avenue building, named Huys, contains 58 apartments – from 55-square-metre one-beds to 325-square-metre four-beds. Piet Boon and his team spent four years overhauling the structure to transform it from office to residential use. "It was in a very bad state, luckily we could demolish the whole facade," Boon told Dezeen. Small windows on the front of the building were replaced with much larger sections of glazing within dark steel frames, allowing more light into the spaces.

"The lucky part was that we were able to cut out all the window frames, because there were very small windows very high up because desks were up against the walls," said Boon. With high ceilings and doors, the apartments are largely open plan and feature built-in storage cupboards and units. Photography is by Paul Barbera. Pitsou Kedem uses raw materials to renovate Y Duplex Penthouse.

Pitsou Kedem uses raw materials to renovate Y Duplex Penthouse

The owner of Y Duplex Penthouse commissioned Pitsou Kedem to renovate the 160-square-metre apartment, with a brief to create lighter, more generous spaces, and make room for a combined study and office on the top floor. "It was a small yet complex project," said the architects, whose other projects include a penthouse with an infinity pool and a six-storey townhouse with a black steel staircase. "How would it be possible to install meaning and architectural values to a rooftop apartment in a standard, uninspired multi-storey building? " The architects have reconfigured the apartment to create an open-plan kitchen, dining room and living area on the bottom floor, and added large sliding doors that open on to a 40-square-metre balcony.

Farmhouse Renovation / Buero Philipp Moeller

Monn From the architect. The renovation of a farmhouse erected in 1890 in the Fürstenfeldbruck district is focusing on the reorganization of the floor plan, the preservation of the basic structure, particularly the roof truss, and above all the creation of diverse and atmospherically dense interior rooms offering a very special living experience to a family of four. In order to retain the typical character of a farmhouse consisting of living-dining area and utility rooms, the small room structures on the ground and first floor of the living area remain largely untouched. On the one hand, available or supplementary old objects such as doors, lamps or furniture support this aura. Natural materials and surfaces, subtle colours and the obvious love to detail are fusing old and new to one unit.

Tiny apartment in Madrid with rooms connected by ladders. The owner of this Madrid apartment moves between living and working spaces like a character in a computer game, using ladders and stairs that connect platforms inserted in a single tall, narrow space. "[It] leads to an image that looks like those old computer platform games," said Spanish architects MYCC, who created the live-work space in a 100 cubic-metre volume. The architects described the volume as "an empty box waiting to be filled," adding: "The idea of light and simple floors where it could be possible to easily jump from one to another was always in mind from the very first sketches. " A mixture of ladders and staircases connect each of the platforms in the space, which is just 20 square metres in plan.

"Size, both horizontal and vertical, of every part gives a non-lineal path," added the architects. "So, moving from one room to another is a kind of small physical effort. " Flat in Tel Aviv by Jacobs-Yaniv Architects. Play "spot the woman" in this photo set of an apartment that references Tel Aviv's 1950s interiors by Israeli practice Jacobs-Yaniv Architects (+ slideshow).

As the clients are modernist enthusiasts, Jacobs-Yaniv Architects used materials, colours and furniture from the movement's heyday to inform the design of the 190-square-metre space. "It was a great joy to study flats of Tel Aviv's 50s, which were designed very cleverly," said the designers. Spaces are kept as open as possible in keeping with this style and to allow maximum flexibility for the family. Rounded Loft / A1 Architects.

David Maštálka At the beginning of the year 2010 we had started designing a grand attic loft in Prague. It was a new challenge for us to deal with almost “boundless” space for living according to our previous experience focused mainly on small scale. The issue of “boundless” space became the main motif of our work. The private spaces such as bedrooms are of course separated, but the rest of common activities rooms are connected within one fluent space. Next to the main continuos living space there are three bedrooms and one study room, and some storage spaces integrated mostly as built-in furniture. St Pancras Penthouse Apartment by Thomas Griem.
