Rounded Loft in Prague

At the beginning of the year 2010 we had started designing grand attic loft in Prague. It was a new challenge for us to deal with almost “boundless” space for living according to our previous experience focused mainly on small scale.
The issue of “boundless“ space became the main motif of our work. The private spaces such as bedrooms are of course separated, but the rest of common activities rooms are connected within one fluent space. 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 bounderies 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.
Next to the main continuous living space there are three bedrooms and one study room, and some storage spaces integrated mostly as built in furniture. The issue of materials was another important part of the project. Their main atributes are touchableness and pure naturalness. We chose carefully many of them together with clients at stone workshop and joinery. Most of woden furniture were tailor made pieces. Beige large format tiles are used on all attic floors to support the feeling of continuity. We exposed as much of the wooden bearing structure as we could. The kitchen counter is made out of black granite stone which is next to bright marble on the wall behind. There is used walnut wood for the dining table and ash veneer for the light above. The living space is connected with the kitchen by raw grey plaster.
