The design team at Poland’s mode:lina Architekci had their work cut out for them when they were handed the brief for the remodel of the interior house design of this 70 square meter loft. The brief, which came from a young, urban, dynamic couple, asked the designers for quite a lot. The owners pretty much sound like any other contemporary couple of hipsters, who “love to be noisy, talk loudly while eating, listen to loud music”, “love and own lots of books, clothes, shoes and other cool stuff”, “are both light sleepers,” though one is an early bird and the other a night owl, and “just can’t stand the sound of slamming doors.” Whoa. How does a team of designers incorporate all these requirements into a relatively small space? Simple. They create an open space, characterized by flexible solutions, yet without sacrificing the coziness of the rooms and the clients’ need for privacy.
To complete the interior house design of the Bookbox Loft, the architects divided the 70 square meter home into four distinct areas which serve discreet purposes. The areas can be joined together into one open space, by opening up all the sliding doors featured around the home. Alternatively, they can be sealed away for privacy, acoustic barriers and flexible use of space. At the core of the home stands the open plan kitchen with a dining area included, plus a mysterious black box. Inside the black box sit the wardrobe, a small library, a work space and a small kennel.
