Loft Apartment is a powerful residential renovation in Melbourne designed by Australia’s AAArchitects. A space that is almost too striking for words, Loft Apartment is a sea of monochrome with an all-consuming feature: the addition of curvilinear forms. The swerved, twisted, and arched walls transform the white spans of plaster into a structure that feels closer to art than architecture. These fluid walls wrap the private areas, distinguishing the separate rooms in an otherwise open floor plan.
A central staircase falls in a dramatic swoop from the second story; a particularly strong gesture that defines the living room. Large steel-framed windows and geometric slabs of marble add a refreshing juxtaposition to all the curves. AAArchitects have succeeded in creating a playful and imaginative home that is as rewarding to the eyes as it is to the mind.
