Two Small Lofts Inside a Loft

Apart from some typical yet totally cool features, like the exposed concrete ceiling and massive garage style windows, this loft design idea by Belgian architects Adn Architectures has a couple of very unusual features – two lofts within the loft! A pair of separate volumes stand within this vast, open concept home design, rising as two-storey boxes enclosed in a combination of opaque and translucent white walls that allow for privacy. Surrounding these, the minimalist loft features bright white finishes to enhance the its awesome sense of space and amplify the abundant natural light throughout. We love the home’s industrial aesthetic, unique use of space, and efficient layout. Check out this cool Belgium home are prepare to be inspired!

While the upper volumes are wrapped in perforated steel, the ground level spaces are enclosed in solid steel to house private spaces – bathroom in one box, laundry in the other.

The main living / dining area and minimalist kitchen at the center of the loft is simple in style and function. A long counter lines one wall, while the other is clad in minimalist white panels concealing ample storage.

Open sesame… and voila! Hidden storage that puts all your everyday essentials conveniently on hand, yet out of sight.

The exposed brick wall echoes the loft’s industrial roots, painted white for a more contemporary aesthetic.

A bathroom is tucked in the base of one of the two interior boxes.

The main living area is flanked by a pair of stairs, each leading to the upper level of the boxes housing a bedroom on one side, office on the other.

The two metal volumes are finished in a combination of opaque and perforated steel, allowing for privacy when needed, without totally compromising the home’s open concept feel.

The stairs are minimal in look and composition, fashioned from a thin sheet of folded steel, exuding an artful origami effect.

Below it, the bathroom is bright white, its translucent walls flooding it with light without compromising privacy. An interior glass wall separated the shower without visually closing it off, while a sculptural freestanding tub takes center stage.

Opposite the bedroom, the office is an inspiring place to get to work.

The perforated steel walls let light and views enter the space, while still maintaining a sense of privacy from the main living areas.
