Publisher's Loft

Büro Koray Duman (B-KD) as Architects

The client's existing space housed an expansive book collection cluttering both living and leisure spaces. We embraced this as a design opportunity, how to elegantly incorporate the collection into the loft without it being an overwhelming omnipresent element in the space.

 

The design used the library as an infrastructure to organize the existing space, wrapping its perimeter with custom designed shelving set at a 45 degree angle. The angle allows the book collection to be viewed from one direction and in the other, provides three dimensional wall, which animates as natural light changes throughout the day. The diagonal created by the shelves provides a motif extended throughout the space with custom tile work and wood flooring.
