Text description provided by the architects. Located in the Cornlofts, a former industrial building, in Prague´s quarter Karlin, reconstructed for the res­i­den­tial use based on the design of Baum­schlager Eberle Architekten from Wien. The design for a Live/ Work unit eschews conventional loft typologies in order to maximize square footage and natural light. Portions of the original floor plate is removed while new glass plates are inserted into a central void. As a result, this formal gesture increases overall square footage while simultaneously providing unexpected views and natural light throughout.

The main goal of the loft´s redesign was to bring back the original industrial look balanced with the modern design and materials.

On the other side, there´s living and enternaiting space vertically connected by partially glassed floor plate of the third level.
