Rounded Loft

Rounded Loft A1 Architects

In most of the modern apartments and small houses, the different functional areas are often designed in a single boundless volume. Czech architectural firm A1 Architects has used the same motif to design the Rounded Loft in Prague. Apart from the private spaces such as bedrooms, the other functional areas are connected within one fluent space. According to the architects, "It starts at the entrance hall with dressing wardrobes and slightly continues towards living space and kitchen with large dining table, the space is also opened to upper gallery which is meant for guests. To reach specific fluency of space we decided to round off some of the interior corners, which finally give the space its unique smooth character. Due to these softened corners one moves and feel simply free and the boundaries of walls somehow disappears. Even the staircase with integrated fireplace and library climbs up in rounded corner. The railing is made out of thin stainless steel net, so it is safe but even smooth and transparent.
