This loft design in New York called The Manhattan Micro Loft is designed by Specht Harpman to maximize a small living space on several levels.In fact, this house is spread over three levels and also has a roof garden.
At the top of a six-story building, he had a ceiling quite high over 7m. And as the mission of today's architects is to make living spaces more and more practical, this height inspired the project of this design loft.
The different levels of loft design visible on this architectural level
The general design is based on stairs . This is exactly what opens the space and closes it at the same time, serving as partition between the different habitable rooms of the apartment. The design is Japanese-style (the Kaidan-inu system) which translates into a very convenient space usage - the interior of the stairs is not hollow, but serves as storage space that saves large wardrobes and other similar furniture that are often very bulky.
Overview of the minimalist kitchen towards the living room
At the first level are the kitchen and the bathroom, then we climb a little to the living room and taking the stairs a little higher, we arrive at the bedroom in cantilever. Another Kaidan-dansu staircase leads to the garden on the roof of the building. It is a unique and intelligent loft design that puts every square meter into use - the dream of the architect and the modern consumer.
