Loft Andrés Borrego by Beriot, Bernardini Architects

View all 12 Photos

Beriot, Bernardini Architects have found a way to condense the effect of a split-level home into a cozy loft in Madrid, Spain. Loft Andrés Borrego makes use of a key spatial element, a laminate-wood box frame that floats in front of the mezzanine-turned-bedroom of the loft. The bottom panel serves as the counter of the recessed kitchen, which is tucked underneath the mezzanine, and the top panel conveniently transforms into a border table for the personal space above. Seven floating steps that connect the different elevations within the loft also give the illusion of height to the room, and serve as an effective barrier between public and private circulation throughout the loft.
