The expansiveness of lofts, while impressive and great for parties, can sometimes defy the laws of coziness that many of us appreciate about small spaces. This 'Cabin in a Loft' project by Katz Chiao, a design and research collaborative founded by Deborah Grossberg Katz and Terri Chiao, creates the best of both worlds — small architectural cabins within a larger loft space.
The raw wood "houses within houses" not only divide up the space in a unique way, but become beautiful sculptural objects. The hand-made, rustic quality they bring to the apartment in a former textile factory hearkens back to the days when loft living was more of a DIY adventure than high-end development.
