This project for a couple started with the appeal of an open industrial loft space combined with the need for privacy and separation. Avoiding conventional partitions that would have closed off the space, we created a single faceted form that while enclosed and private at times, also interlocked with the larger space of the open loft shell. Set free from the concrete columns and ceiling as well as the surrounding white walls, the form provides depth and visual relief from the living room and kitchen while also allowing for the distribution of light and air to the enclosed spaces of the master bedroom, children?s bedroom, and bathroom. Part of the dynamic drive for this project was a tight budget that was used as a positive force, resulting in a rethought program and economy of structure and form. At its simplest the project exists as the shell of the open loft and the form within it, but complexity arises within the surfaces of the form as they become activated with secondary materials related and responding to the adjacent program space.
