A Lofty Shelf Desk in Barcelona

Integrated spaces getting real popular these days and modern lofts in Barcelona are certainly no exception to this trend. Converted from an old abandoned building, this deep and narrow floorplan features a beautifully crafted custom shelving unit with a hidden built-in desk that's to die for.

With plenty of natural light leaking in from the front and back, the desk is located right in the middle away from direct sunlight. Perfect for those who own computers with glossy screens.

Additionally, the fact that the desk can fold up and become hidden when not in use makes it perfect as an entertaining space. As one of our biggest gripes on integrated spaces today - sometimes you just don't want your computer out in the open when guests are around. When you add children and pets (or inebriated Microsoft Kinect gamers) to the equation, it's probably not a bad idea.

Check out the rest of the space by Ylab Architects over here. They've got a killer bathroom, if gigantic glossy open bathrooms are your kind of thing.
