Located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, the Zoku loft is a unique living/working hybrid design customized to meet all of your needs from work to hosting dinner parties. The cozy and compact space features a lot of design packed into just 269 square feet (25 square meters). In a regular hotel room or a studio apartment, the bed is typically the focal point of the room, however in the Zoku loft, the kitchen table has been turned into the focal feature. You can use this space for work or to enjoy your meals, which can be conveniently made from the small and efficient kitchen. The comfortable furnishings throughout this small loft were designed by Muuto. You can even switch out the artwork on your walls if you are looking for some new inspiration! A small staircases leads to an elevated sleeping area, offering its guests a fluffy king-sized bed, which can be easily screened off when you have guests.

The Zoku Lofts can be rented for a single night, but are geared towards those looking for a temporary shelter anywhere from a couple of days to several months. Their main goal is to offer you comfort and efficiency for both work and play.

A fully equipped kitchen can do everything from making an early morning pick-me-up such as an espresso to a wonderful pasta dish in the evening. The loft also has plenty of storage to tuck away your suitcases and even has an area by the doorway for all of your office amenities.
