The lack of space inspires the creative minds and pushes them to find solutions more and more intelligent. Always looking for original ideas to optimize our living spaces and make them more functional and comfortable, we present you the fascinating project Domino Loft : small space of 46 sqm converted into a multifunctional loft by the ICOSA design studio in collaboration with Peter Suen.
Small space transformed into a multifunctional loft in San Francisco
Small space transformed into a multifunctional loft in San Francisco by ICOSA and Peter Suen
This mini-loft is located in San Francisco, California. The ICOSA studio designers in collaboration with Peter Suen were commissioned to design the interior of Domino Loft for a young couple, Peter and Nicole Wang.
They transformed their small apartment into a multifunctional and dynamic design space. The project took a year. ICOSA had about 10 different design strategies and configurations for its layout.
Small dynamic space and design
A custom design and built of prefabricated materials, the loft combines a bed for guests, a dining room, a dressing room, two spacious bedrooms and a work area. The whole is made of concrete panels, wooden slats, metal elements and furniture made to measure in a workshop in Oakland. All materials were reassembled on site in San Francisco’s financial district. The Domino Loft area is 46 sqm. The kitchen and bathroom are apart, while everything else is in the same small space.
A ladder to go upstairs and a dressing room to store clothes
The main bed is placed above the main room. A removable ladder has been installed in order to access it. The space behind the ladder serves as storage space. One of ICOSA’s designers, Irby, mentions that their team has managed to create the lightest and slimmest bed possible. In a vertical position, the bed turns into a blackboard. This, in turn, is one of the walls of the dining room and workspace. This part includes a foldable desk and dining table. Part of this construction includes a bench to sit on when eating. This bench can also work as a seat when you put on your shoes. The interior level of the bench serves as a dressing room.
