Paris-based architectural practice B2 Architecture have completed the Cornlofts project. Completed in 2013, the contemporary building can be found in Prague, Czech Republic.

According to the architects: “Located in the Cornlofts, a former industrial building, in Prague’s Karlin quarter, reconstructed for residential use based on the design of Baumschlager Eberle Architekten from Wien.

“The interior design for a live/work unit eschews conventional loft typologies in order to maximise square footage and natural light.

“Sections of the original floor plate were removed to be replaced with new glass plates that were 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 guestroom 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 entertaining space vertically connected by partially glassed floor plate of the third level.

“The living space has been furnished with the vintage and modern custom-made furniture completed with the piano mozaic and other music related elements referring to the owners profession.

“Besides the entertaining space, the third level also includes the master bedroom with a bath and two dressing rooms.”
