Heren 5 architects in collaboration with furniture designer Paul Timmer, designed the interior of Loft Buikslotherham, fully utilising the width of the space. The most important housing functions, cooking and eating, are situated directly behind the large glass façades with view of the lightboat and the canal.
The living room, sleeping area, storage and bathroom are situated in the back of the loft. With the extra high 3.5m ceiling used to place the sleeping area on top of the kitchen, with an extra bed under the living-platform, to provide sleeping space for guests. Inventive switching and stacking created a compact loft with a generous feel.
The large interior-unit is realized in a subtle palette of birch wood and white Corian. The ‘diamond edge’-detailing, designed by Paul Timmer, gives the design its unique look.
