Converted spaces are hardly a rare commodity these days, but this attic loft – located in Poznan, Poland – is a particularly striking example.
Tomek, the owner, sought an open and comfortable space with no defined borders, inspired by the fun-loving and free spirited hero of Nash Bridges. He tapped architects Michelina Majcherkiewicz-Chmielowska and Jedrzej Sobkiewicz of Cuns Studio to make that oddly specific dream come true.
Revamping an abandoned attic is no easy feat. The hardest tasks were restoring the original wooden floor and roof timber structure, and uncovering the original brick walls. With those hurdles overcome, the architects could focus on the loft’s most playful details. A fairytale lamp fulfills Tomek’s goal of bathing under the clouds, while a hammock suspended from the ceiling provides a unique relaxation space.
Tailor-made features can be found throughout the loft. The mezzanine is accessed by custom steel stairs. The kitchen floor boasts a geometrical pattern inspired by a rug in the living room. Cube Audio provided a customised home audio system.
The home theatre features a screen that lowers automatically from under the mezzanine floor. And since all the apartment’s services are fully integrated, the owner can control not only the audio or video systems, but also the lighting and climate settings – entirely from his smartphone.
