Bilzen-based architectural practice, C.T. Architects, has designed the Loft MM project. Completed in 2012, the contemporary home is located in in Bilzen, Belgium.

This remodeling of a small ground floor storage space come garage into a micro-loft sits within an existing historic shophouse that was completely converted in the early 1990s into a contemporary apartment building.

According to the architects: ” Arranged within a 3m wide by 30m long space, the apartment features the familiar succession of increasingly private spaces: living room, dining area, a narrow hallway with the kitchen on one side and the bathroom on the other, and at the end the bedroom/study. It is one open-plan area – a sequence of living and dining spaces all open to each other. They are shielded as well as connected by wooden sliding panels, creating a flowing interior space defined by two solid elements which accommodate auxiliary functions. Daylight enters both from the windows facing the street and through the sliding doors that lead seamlessly out onto a patio situated half underground at the back of the project. Each of these areas are designed not as separate compartments but as an evolving sequence of spaces, articulated to take advantage of the endlessly shifting qualities of natural light and the existing views towards the vibrant street life.”
