As San Francisco real estate demands increase and offered area decreases, designers at ICOSA, in collaboration with Peter Suen, created the Domino Loft. The dynamic, multifunctional volume was created in a condominium in the city’s Monetary District.
The customized loft houses a bedroom, guest bed, closet, dining room and vibrant perform region. It was assembled in an offsite workshop utilizing concrete panels, wood slabs, metalwork and customized cabinetry, and then reassembled within the property.
The designers’ extremely productive touches integrated a dry-erase white board that pulls out to a Murphy bed, and a total closet that’s hidden by a slide-away table that doubles as a desk.
A sturdy ladder with railings makes it possible for entry to the lofted “bedroom” region, underneath which is a closet and storage region for add-ons this kind of as hats and sneakers. The ladder slides horizontally for easy accessibility.
The loft has a clean, modern day search, incorporating contemporary information and finishes. Storage is abundant all through the entire unit, and the space is easily functional for a couple — and even a guest or 2.
Types such as the Domino Loft are a creative solution for apartments in huge, crowded cities with increasingly costly genuine estate. What do you consider of this room-saving idea? [Photography by Brian Flaherty]
