From the architect. The idea of the two-staired bedroom-loft, which is acting as the accented main element of the flat, was envisioned by a young couple.

We were trying to validate design and functionality equally, which resulted in our trying to achieve such consistency and homogeneity that can as well incorporate male and female differences.

The placement of the bed right above the door (as ordered by the clients) created a zigzagged geometry that became a ribbon waving towards the corners of the room and as doing so, started to shape and divide the space around it.

Sheet metal stairs enveloped in the ribbon form a male side, while the descending ribbon itself counters the former with female delicacy on the other side.

This ribbon like "object" acts simultaneously as floor and ceiling, stairs and bed, shelves and hidden storage.

Our aim was to compose a homogenous continuous ribbon, which was achieved by using painted fibreboards (MDF) on a steel supporting structure.

Breaking up the monochromatic whiteness of the living-room, the red-orange loft complemented by the built-in lighting became a vivid nuance in the simple apartment fitting the young style of our clients.
