Top Design – The REAL Final Challenge -Entries1

Eric3000 is in the house! Or, should I say, in the loft!

What Eric3000 says of his space:”I was more interested in the architecture than the furnishings so I just added some furniture to demonstrate the amount of space available.

I included two bedrooms, like Matt needed, but I decided to make them real rooms with windows. I’ve left most of the open window area that Matt had except for the strange little entrance area, which I turned into the smaller bedroom.

I’ve changed the main entrance to the kitchen door. That would be strange for a house but I think in a loft apartment that arrangement is perfectly fine, especially since the door opens at the end of the kitchen and into a transitional space leading to the living rooms.

I’ve removed the hall closet to open the kitchen up to the rest of the apartment and to add a breakfast area. I think this should provide the kitchen with a little natural light and it should feel less closed off.

I hope this has provided a lot of open loft space while adding two true bedrooms with some privacy.”

Thanks Eric! Great ideas!

More plans to follow. Once we have all posted, we’ll open up a poll to vote!

  1. When I was in my studio apt. my main entry from the hallway was the size of a queen bedand attached to a long halway that lead to the main living area, and my kitchen had a fire escape door. A friend of mine came over and said I should lock my main door and put a bed there and use my kitchen door to come and go… All I could think was the “noise” my neightbors might be privy to …lol!

  2. Damselfly,

    Ha ha! Yeah, I don’t think I would want my bedroom to have a door opening directly to a main building hallway. I think it would be OK in these lofts, though, because the main door actually opened to a small vestibule that then has another door leading to the main stairwell. I think it would be private enough.
