Cozy atmosphere, top-floor views, natural light access and no upstairs neighbors are just some of the advantages of living in an attic. And if the place looks like the Loft 9b Apartment in Sofia, Bulgaria– we’re ready to move in!
After 2 years of reconstructing a small attic apartment, designing custom furniture and experimenting with different finishes, architect Dimitar Karanikolov and interior designer Veneta Nikolova have created this bachelor pad that is both super-functional and stylish. The first element that draws attention is a massive dark “cube”, clad in thin custom-made concrete panels, which occupies the center of the living room and hides the bathroom (that sits on the top of the building’s elevator shaft). To add some extra privacy, the entire apartment has been outlined with tall cantilevered aluminium planters creating a green aura that surrounds the place and makes the terrace appear like a peaceful courtyard. Some of the carefully crafted details include: a bathroom wardrobe designed to look like an old suitcase, a guest bedroom with an elegant built-in bathtub, black metal panels encasing the ventilation system, magnet-held Edison bulbs hanging above the dining table, and a lot of cool-looking vintage furniture and accessories. via
