Houzz Tour: Luxurious Modern Loft in Buenos Aires

After Giselle and Mariana of Gutman+Lehrer Arquitectas were approached by a young CEO seeking solace and a place to unwind after work, they left no depth to the wayside in devoting efficacy with style in his Caribbean Buenos Aires attic. It was quite important to their bachelor to be able to”relax and come home to a peaceful surroundings” after working in the bustling cultural hotspot that’s Buenos Aires.

The apartment is nestled in a classic building in Palermo, the city’s largest area. Everything in its contemporary interior is custom designed. All of the details, such as LED light, Swarovski crystal chandelier — along with an amazing ceiling gallery wall — matches a need for simplified and highly functional urban dwelling.

For the compact kitchen, Gutman+Lehrer Arquitectas designed two custom cabinets that house all important kitchen appliances (coffee machine included). Shelves and doors tuck away everything to increase the attic’s polished style. “Our goal was to achieve a contemporary interior of clean lines and types, providing sophisticated comfort,” Mariana says.

Inside this approximately 45m x 45m distance, every square meter is more purposeful. As Mariana says,”Every nook and cranny has been exhaustedly analyzed to stash as many items as you can.” And it shows — especially in the artwork on the ceiling that is inclined.

“The idea was for the proprietor to enjoy this gallery the minute he was at ease, lying on bed, looking upwards,” she says. The art collection was hung with nails, steel cables and hooks — such as those used in boats — and powerful adhesive. The bed immediately beckons with this smart placement. It certainly beats staring at a popcorn-textured drywall.

It is hard not to be attracted to the stunning mood light in the attic. Particular attention went into designing the light, so that specific regions of the attic are highlighted, such as the gallery wall. Recessed and computer programmed lights line the very top of the ceiling that is inclined, highlighting the gallery screen.

LED lights beneath the custom platform bed, also designed by Gutman+Lehrer Arquitectas, give the illusion the bed has been lifted from the ground. The light particulars continue with LED lanterns”designed to resemble a row of candles” framing the bed. A silestone fireplace at the foot of the bed is filled with perfectly trimmed logs.

The inclined ceiling decoration is a highlight regardless of what portion of the attic you’re in. A stunning chandelier using 95 Swarovski crystals hangs overhead, and black velvet sconces flank the dark wooden blinds behind the sofa.

The floor is an off-white blue-green timber, the wool rugs were custom-made, and the couch upholstered in black and gray silk.

A makeshift wall doubles as an extended headboard separating the bed out of a mini office. All the custom designed furniture pieces in the attic were constructed with Masisa. The materials were described by Mariana as a sort of vinyl laminated plywood very similar to Formica, in a dark walnut wood colour. It was then coated with vibrant, transparent lacquer.

The dark wood colors were matched with all the chrome particulars from the knobs and doorknobs, to help make the stunning tone of the room. The walls were then painted in gradient stripes, in three shades of warm grey. The bed linens and draperies were custom made out of luxurious fabrics, finishing the sophisticated aesthetic.

Angling the bed this way makes space for a workspace supporting. A touchscreen tablet PC embedded in the long desk could be increased together with the touch of a button. Custom frosted-glass LED light boxes light the workspace.

Not only is that this kitchen sleek and sexy, but it was created with ultimate efficiency in mind. “Two big cabinets fulfill all the crucial kitchen functions,” Mariana explains. “The cabinets were created so when closedthey seem as though they’re a part of their d├ęcor,” she says. 1 cabinet includes the appliances: small dishwasher, electric oven, wine refrigerator, toaster, coffee machine, microwave and toaster. Another cabinet serves as storage for glassware, cutlery, pots and pans, and pantry items.

The comfy kitchen island features a marble silestone countertop, 21-inch induction cooktop plus refrigerator. This island serves as the dining table, outfitted with trendy stools made from iron and leather.

“The challenge was to design a space that may contain all of the needs of a traditional house, within a very small space,” Mariana says. “We wanted it to possess an air of relaxed elegance, keeping in mind that a masculine look for a single person.” I believe all of you’d agree: they have made one mentor really happy.

This attic also won first prize for”Best Resting Space” in Casa Foa, an yearly architecture and interior design exhibition.
