Before turning into a loft, this home renovation used to be an artist workshop. Located in Paris, the 50 meter squares studio was converted by NZI Architecture into a compact but comfortable and hospitable home. Since it has a low ceiling and quite a narrow space, an open floor plan is used to give the impression of a larger space into the home. With an additional glass hut built as an additional floor space, the home is not only a cozy living space but also a conventional work station.
With an exterior resemblance of what looks like a cozy country side cafÃ©, the home already radiates an atmosphere of warm welcome. In this home improvement, the exterior is painted entirely in gray and employs the building a long row of small wooden framed glass windows and doors. This is done to give the home privacy as well as natural ventilation for energy conservation. Several exterior dÃ©cor, such as an outdoor seating and plantations are given to give an additional natural color into the home’s cheerful atmosphere.
Inside, white walls and wooden furnishing extends the natural dÃ©cor from the outside into the house. Apart from the white sofa, red chairs, and white bookshelf from the living room, every other furniture in the house is done with a natural wood color. The interior of this home is also done with an open floor plan to give the narrow space a lot of breathing room. Behind the kitchen, which is located at the far end across from the living room, a stair case is built to connect the home with the home’s special glass hut feature.
This Glass Hut feature is an additional space built for the purpose of working. Being made entirely of black framed glass, transparency is available from all areas of the home. This is a great feature because it does not just allow for transparency but also it does not take any of the breathing space away from the narrow home. If anything can be called a marvelous space addition to home improvement ideas, the addition of this Glass Hut is one of them.
