Located in Prague, Czech Republic, Cornlofts Triplex Reconstruction was designed by B² Architecture in 2012-2013. Situated in a former industrial building reconstructed for the residential use based on the design of Baumschlager Eberle Architekten from Wien the total area of the loft space is 223 m² (2400 ft²).
According to the architects,
The design for a Live/ Work unit eschews conventional loft typologies in order to maximize square footage and natural light. Portions of the original floor plate is removed while new glass plates are inserted into a central void. As a result, this formal gesture increases overall square footage while simultaneously providing unexpected views and natural light throughout.
The main goal of the loft´s redesign was to bring back the original industrial look balanced with the modern design and materials.
The lowest level contains the entrance space with custom-made closet, owners music studio, nursery and guest room with bathroom and utility areas.
The second level has a public character. On one side, there´s an open office with the roof window and view over a sculpted staircase connecting the three levels of the loft. On the other side, there´s living and enternaiting space vertically connected by partially glassed floor plate of the third level.
