This modest loft at the classic Regency House building overlooks the treetops of River Oaks. The constraints of the existing unit provided a framework for the challenge of perceptually opening the space to a relaxed modern lifestyle. An isolated kitchen was expanded to connect with the shared living and dining area. The laundry for the unit was relocated into a new pantry concealed by the bar, freeing up space for an expanded master bath. Parquet flooring was removed to reveal the concrete frame slab which was cleaned and topped to provide unity throughout. Minimal furring was added to the ceilings to allow the maximum height possible in the Living and Sleeping areas while accommodating a small shade pocket. Doors running to ceiling height pocket into the walls to completely open the unit when privacy is not a concern, making the space feel larger than the square footage would suggest.
