Attic loft reconstruction in a late 19th century house (2)

Czech studio B2 Architecture designed this attic loft to become a modern home. The apartment is located in Prague and has an area of 220 sqm.

Description by B2 Architecture: This loft apartment located in a late 19th century house presents an interesting challenge: how to recover the graceful proportions of the living room while taking advantage of the possibilities offered by an earlier alteration which had inserted intermediate levels. The Owner is a business executive and collector of animal trophies who wanted a space that would allow him to display his growing collection and enhance its impact. He also wanted a home with the quality of a retreat from his frequent business travels.

This level also contains two suites—one containing living, media and guest bedroom; the other, the master bedroom, bath, dressing and utility areas. The guest bedroom is separated from the office space by large glazed sliding doors which are designed to be left open most of the time.

The upper level comprehend second master bedroom with the small bathroom and big dressing room and living area with the entrance to the terrace. The color scheme for the unit is universally white for the walls, floors and ceilings. The animal trophies provides the color accents as do the wooden beams and several steel elements. Photographer Alexandra Timpau. Visit B2 Architecture
