JM Architecture is the guy behind this stunning remodeling project, the convert an old monastery into clean residential complex. The main idea of this remodeling project is how to keep the small intact, maintaining the entire length of the unit open and invading the space minimally. This loft containing of a small bedroom and two bathrooms which inserted of an enclosed box and leaves to an open space the main functions of the home. There’s a very beautiful loft interior, looking so smart, small and elegant due to minimalism and no unnecessary detailing.
The description from the architect:
The main entry is a very small foyer which creates a sense of compression before entering the main gallery, where the living spaces, kitchen, dining and living, are separated from the master bedroom by a lacquered block. In the drop between the two different ceilings, a video projector is inserted to play images on the wall above the kitchen. To allow the maximum projection surface, the upper kitchen cabinets are hidden behind the wall and slide down with a motorized system. The other characteristic element in the main space is the staircase, which is an assembled steel beam with open treads made by a cantilever steel plate covered in wood. Canadian maple has been carefully selected for the hardwood floors, and since maple wood isn’t stable with radiant floor heating, the floor planks were custom built with 2.5mm Canadian maple top and back layers on a particle board. The 20cm width of the floor planks modulate the position of all the elements, from the walls to the millwork. The floor planks also runs up the master suite wall, which is lit by an upper light cove.
