The Laneway Loft is a particularly interesting project as it was born from what was previously an overgrown garden and decaying outbuildings. The client wanted family to be able to comfortably spend time, in their own space whilst visiting and the challenge to design a small but perfectly formed loft was undertaken.
Lined entirely with furniture-grade plywood and burnished concrete flooring, the space is intimate and moody, yet profoundly homely at the same time. Spread over two floors, the upstairs bedroom is filled with light, generated by two large triangular windows which form the gable pitch of the roof. Proximity to surrounding trees gives the space a treehouse quality, while the lower floor opens almost entirely onto the laneway behind bringing an abundance of light and air. The loft abounds with childlike joy.
