A Loft in Brooklyn
Located in a former factory building in Brooklyn, a small workshop, awkwardly subdivided by existing partitions, was transformed into a bright and open space dedicated to communal living.
Rather than subdividing the loft into the needed rooms, three small and separate volumes cluster around a large common area and are set apart within the raw space. Huddling together, these rooms within rooms, offers intimate personal spaces while maximizing shared zones needed for more social and daily communal living. Glazed openings allow light inside the bedrooms, which are arranged to receive as much light as possible from the loft’s large windows, while providing views of the rapidly changing post-industrial neighborhood.
Modest yet ambitious, the design manages to make the most of limited space, offering a new way to reimagine loft living in the context of shared living.
