Studio AC renovated an loft space in Toronto, using a  sheer in an architectural way that sees it become a way to define space, provide privacy and acoustic dampening.

Located in a downtown loft in Toronto, Canada, StudioAC were asked to design an apartment for a young professional who wanted something equally fun, functional and unique. They produced a scheme that revolves around an element called the “bed box”, which features a generous arch entryway – a move that produces a signifier for the sleeping quarters and a moment of warmth in opposition to the white and concrete finishes of the rest of the loft. This warmth is achieved through a floor and wall wrapper of finish plywood.

 

In front of the bed box Toronto-based studio utilized a gracious full height sheer that conceals the more private functions of the sleeping quarters, closet space and storage. Using the sheer in an architectural way sees it become a way to define space, provide privacy and acoustic dampening – all of which elevates it as an element and turns it into a focal point and a functional conversation piece. This spatial play provides a functional and aesthetic flexibility that allows the relatively small studio loft to feel open while enabling the sleeping quarters to feel cozy and concealed.
