In this roughly 45m x 45m space, every square meter is purposeful. As Mariana says, “Every nook and cranny was exhaustedly studied to stash as many things as possible.” And it shows — especially in the artwork on the inclined ceiling. “The idea was for the owner to enjoy this gallery the moment he was at ease, lying on bed, looking upwards,” she says. The art collection was hung with nails, steel cables and hooks — such as the ones used in ships — and strong adhesive. The bed immediately beckons with this clever placement. It sure beats staring at a popcorn-textured drywall. It's hard not to be drawn to the dramatic mood lighting in the loft. Special attention went into designing the lighting, so that certain areas of the loft are accentuated, like the gallery wall. Recessed and computer programmed lights line the top of the inclined ceiling, highlighting the gallery display. LED lights under the custom platform bed, also designed by Gutman+Lehrer Arquitectas, give the illusion the bed is being lifted from the floor. The lighting details continue with LED lanterns “designed to look like a row of candles” framing the bed. A silestone fireplace at the foot of the bed is filled with perfectly trimmed logs.
