Space of the week #3 Puzzle Loft

29 Dec 2009

This New York loft apartment is truly a puzzle, both in the way architect Kyu Sung Woo solved the spatial problem of stacking two 7 foot tall rooms with only 12 feet of vertical space, and his clever solution where two volumes are interlocked, each with a half height element. The bedroom borrows height from the cupboard below and the kitchen borrows height from the space where the bed is.

The incredible attention to detail has actually made this into a beautiful little apartment: look at how the bedroom area has been lined with wood. Given the right circumstances I think this would make the perfect home for someone. I am completely obsessed with interlocking forms.. I just find this kind of design so appealing and I'd love to design something like this one day :)

I saw this in Dwell! So cool. I'm not sure my husband would crawl up into a loft with me. We have our bed on blocks for more storage and we joke about being in college. Hope you had a great holiday! love your pics too
