a small space: cabin in a loft

image: shawn connell rather than divide up the space in this brooklyn loft with walls, architect terri chiao decided to create small houses within houses. the cabin in a loft is a two bedroom space in bushwick, brooklyn that features a small cabin and a treehouse, integrated into the interior. the two enclosed spaces serve as the loft’s sleeping quarters each with their own semi-private garden space tucked away form the main living space. the cabin is the master bedroom, located on the same floor as the rest of the loft, while the treehouse is the second bedroom, elevated off the ground allowing room for a dining room underneath.

  • and in the end my friend we all need cocooning

    sozialist says:
  • this is SUPER cute but obviously original it is not. See House K by Yoshichika Takagi and oh, erm…Bow Wow perhaps? Still one can only appreciate the attempt as it is obviously self-fabricated with modest means. And the cat is adorable

  • Thumbs Up – elegant in its simplicity d;-)
