At the beginning of the year 2010 A1 Architects Studio had started designing grand attic loft in Prague. It was a new challenge for us to deal with almost „boundless “ space for living according to our previous experience focused mainly on small scale.
The issue of „boundless“ space became the main motif of their work. The private spaces such as bedrooms are of course separated, but the rest of common activities rooms are connected within one fluent space. It starts at the entrance hall with dressing wardrobes and slightly continues towards living space and kitchen with large dining table, the space is also opened to upper gallery which is meant for guests. To reach specific fluency of space, the designers decided to round off some of the interior corners, which finally give the space its unique smooth character. Due to these softened corners one moves and feel simply free and the boundaries of walls somehow disappears. Even the staircase with integrated fireplace and library climbs up in rounded corner. The railing is made out of thin stainless steel net, so it is safe but even smooth and transparent.
