Often times, a small space can be maximized by building up — but standard ceilings can hinder a loft addition. Madrid-based Beriot, Bernardini Arquitectos had a better solution: dig down! The architects were able to make a 400-square-foot space seem much larger by sinking the kitchen and bathroom down by 16 inches, leaving enough vertical space for a loft above. The added height is subtle but spacious, and makes the kitchen appear as a cohesive step-down room rather than an isolated basement space. Visit the architect's website to view the completed project.
