Concept & Idea

An empty attic on top of a multistory residential building was meant to be refurbished and two separate flats be created. The client demanded an individual design that differed from standard floor plans. He aimed for an airy loft like living atmosphere within this cramped attic space.

rundzwei proposes two different concepts, which both offer a stunning roof terrace with a view over the Berlin skyline. In concept one all functional areas such as bathrooms, kitchen, storage and so forth are gathered and concentrated in one central "loft core". By condensing functional areas to a minimum it leaves space for the living and sleeping areas, which stretch out around it. Large sliding elements separate sleeping from living where needed. The second concept puts the focus on the kitchen as the central gathering space. All functional areas except for living and sleeping are moved towards the outer walls of the unit. The soft wall shapes generate one large living and sleeping space with pockets for privacy and the kitchen as the connecting element in the center.
