Amazing redesign of an industrial loft in Prague

Cornlofts Triplex-01-1 Kindesign

Located in the Cornlofts, a former industrial building, in Prague´s quarter Karlin, this loft has been reconstructed by B2 Architecture 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 are removed while new glass plates are inserted into a central void. As a result, this formal gesture increases overall square footage to a total of 2,475 square feet (230 square meters) 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.

The living space is furnished with the vintage/modern custom-made furniture completed with the pixeled piano mosaic and other music related elements referring to the owner’s profession.
