The jury of the open competition for the development of design projects for the premises of the art-quarter "City Crystal" has three answers to this question at once. We learned what the best Russian loft apartments are and are ready to share with you three amazing design projects.

City of Crystal

In 2012-2013 the production of the plant "Crystal"Was completely transferred to the Moscow region. The 9.3 hectare area he occupied was decided to be transformed into a unique art quarter, creating a space in Moscow on the Yauza coast for a full life and development. Crafts and designer workshops will open here, sports zones and the theater will appear, educational projects will start, residents of the quarter will be able to receive a wide range of social and personal services. In addition, the building of the former factory will accommodate functional and modern loft apartments. Loft (from the English loft - "loft") - the style that came to us from America 50's. It was then that it became fashionable to live in industrial buildings with high ceilings, large windows and elements of the industrial past. Today the loft style is at the peak of popularity. And he is very well suited to give a new life to the building of the former Kristall factory. So the developers also decided, announcing an open competition for the creation of the best lofts for the "City of Crystal". A qualified jury selected the winners in threeNominations: the best concept of loft in the nomination "From the patio" was offered by the Bureau "AI Studio"; The author of the most successful loft design project in the nomination "Compact" was the Archpoint bureau; The leader of the loft solutions in the "Mansard" category also turned out to be Bureau "AI Studio".

Loft "From Patio"

About the room. Two-level space, the area of ​​the first level - 89 square meters. M, the area of ​​the second level - 80 square meters. In addition, there is a small patio. The height of the first level is 3.5 m, the second level is 4.3 m. About the design project. According to the jury, the space of this loft takes into account the historical value of the building. It is bright, clean, while the problem of lack of natural light in the premises of the basement floor has been cleverly solved. In addition, the brickwork of the walls is preserved. Our opinion: - This design project from the Bureau "AI Studio" completely reflects the mood and conveys the aesthetics of the loft style. In this case, the space turned out not only stylish, but also functional: there is also a dining area, and a living room, and a large bed, and a lot of storage space - while the space remains free, not overloaded.

Loft "Compact"

About the room. Area - 57 square meters. M. The height of the floor is 3.3 m. About the design project. The jury praised the original layout decision: on the one hand, several functional zones were clearly identified, on the other hand, the openness inherent in lofts was preserved. The decoration uses a lot of wood, partially retained brickwork. The interior is built on the principle of "flow of space": the zones smoothly pass one into the other, creating a sense of the integrity of the interior. Our opinion: - For a real loft of 57 square meters - this is very small, but the specialists of the Archpoint office managed to do almost impossible, creating a stylish, compact and balanced project. The rate in the design of the space is made for simplicity and comfort. This is a design project for life, there is some creative disorder in it, the interior turned out to be filled with mood and emotions.

Loft "Mansard"

About the room. Area - 62 square meters. M, as well as a loggia of 13 sq. M. The height of the floor varies from 5.63 m to 8 m. About the design project. The jury noted this project not only for thoughtfulness and completeness, but also for the original approach to design. Specialists of the Bureau "AI Studio" left a significant part of the space free and placed the main functional areas on three levels, connected by a spiral staircase. Our opinion: - Quite a bold and creative project, surprising with a lot of non-standard solutions. About half of the space is left for rest and reception of guests (sofas, audio system, fireplace, bar counter). The rest of the functional rooms are located on several levels, with a real spa zone instead of a typical bathroom on the top.
