Proposed design for 3rd storey

Room Rescue debuts!

A young couple wanted to create a 'home within a home' for both of them. It was proposed to convert the top storey of the 3-storey house into a livable space for two while the existing ceiling was removed to reveal an attic area which can be used for resting purposes.

In the living area (on the 3rd storey), the owners seek an "open and spacious Manhattan-inspired lofty space" which would accommodate their daily functions like studying and entertainment. All original internal walls on this floor will be removed to achieve a sense of space.

Finishes like cultured stone, marble, dark-stained timber and high gloss laminates can be incorporated into the space to achieve a contemporary yet 'visually stimulating' look. A water feature installed below the newly created staircase leading to the attic space can also enhance the visual effect with water and lighting play.

I propose to locate the study + working area to one corner of the space, with a storage cabinet overhanging the floor to act as a partition for privacy (which will not take up any floor space). The cabinet is under lit to provide illumination for reading purposes.

On the attic level, the parapet wall against which the super king-sized bed lies is finished in a cultured stone material. The area opposite the bed can be utilized as a walk-in closet, seperated by tinted glass doors.
