Mind The Gap: New Loft Fills Space Between Buildings

Designers Ole Robin Storjohann and Mateusz Mastalski have won the first prize of roof window manufacturer FAKRO’s ‘New Vision of the Loft 2’ competition with a nifty idea to fill the narrow gaps between buildings with lofts.

Their design called Live Between Buildings proposes filling up unused gaps between buildings with light-weight spaces, based on FAKRO technology. The lofts enable a life close to nature right in the middle of the city. The micro-apartment comes with a kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom, swing, hammock and indoor garden. The in-house infrastructure consists of ladders and even a climbing wall to get to the ceiling. A wide variety of housing typologies are possible within the concept.

Live Between Buildings

In Poland people seem to be attracted by micro-living concepts. In the past we showcased the world’s smallest building that was constructed in the Polish capital Warsaw.
