Welcome back to Facades World, one of the most visited and busiest websites in the field of architecture and interior design. On the day of the date we are going to share the design of a modern studio loft located in Valencia, Spain. Don't miss out on this new European trip and join us because right now… We started!
Modern style loft - simple construction
The house we are analyzing today has a plot depth that requires the existence of intermediate rooms that are illuminated and ventilated by a small patio. On the other hand, the kitchen and the toilet occupy the back facade as annexed pieces, relating to each other through an old terrace that had been closed. Finally, everything is simple housing had a ceiling satin and plaster ceiling.
This is how the project was proposed as a modern loft in which the only closed piece would be the bath. In this way all the interior partitions are suppressed to generate a single space in which everything happens (we can appreciate it in the images). The fundamental work is to choose what you can and remove the unnecessary, adding only a light platform that seems to float in the middle of space and contrasts in materiality with the rest of the original construction elements.
Certain elements are preserved and brought to light, or even "reinterpreted" for another use. To enhance the envelope, in the Front and back facades the original solid brick and the lintels of the hollows, and the entire wooden entrevigado cover is cleaned and restored. The old false ceiling line is drawn with slight volumetric changes, maintaining and delimiting up to the corresponding height plaster coating of the dividing pillars.
La wooden substructure preserved becomes the limit of the space of the attic that is the bedroom, being used as part of the design of the new glass railing of the same. The narrow and small patio becomes a skylight that illuminates the heart of the house and through which the ladder that gives access to the platform.
