Tiny Loft 01 Tiny Loft 02 Tiny Loft 03 Tiny Loft 04 Tiny Loft 05

Agar Grove, located in Camden was designed by London based Architects Craft Design. Previously an open plan office, the space was converted into an airy and modern loft. Despite the size of the space, the architects have efficiently capitalised using every available place to provide a spacious open plan space.The central Volume accommodates the bathroom and storage units with the bedroom sitting on top. The far wall bridges everything together whilst providing extra storage.

Leiden House

Leiden House-01 Leiden House-02 Leiden House-03 Leiden House-04

 

Firm 8A Architecten have redesigned a small residential house in Leiden by introducing an oak structure which combines a staircase, a sofa and storage.

By incorporating these elements together, the rest of the house, becomes an multipurpose, functional space. The Oak structure combined with the modernised white finishing creates a light, calm environment.

Architect Robert Uijttewaal of 8A Architecten. was asked to make the most of space and light in the 76-square-metre residence, which provides a second home for a Dutch family living in Paris.

The architect began by removing all existing partition walls on the ground floor, then added an oak staircase that merges into a fixed sofa with integrated storage space, similar to the design of a ship’s cabin.
