Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Loft space with raw materials

While searching for ideas and inspiration for my own home, a loft apartment with slanted ceilings everywhere and a completely open floor plan (totally impractical when living with three kids), I stumbled over this place. It's the home of Italian architect duo Marcello and Maria Pia Zappador of architect firm Amorfo.
This is very close to what I'd like my home to look like, but unfortunately our ceilings are about 1 meter lower than theirs, and where their space extends into little loft rooms, our space ends. And we definitely don't have their amazing outdoor space. But I can still dream, right?
I'm inspired by their use of materials, where everything is left in it's original raw and untreated state. And I love the little video from their home that they posted on their site. I also made a photo album of some of my favorites from their commercial spaces on the blog's facebook page, check it out if you like.
Oh and about the giveaway from RTA London, I can announce the winner now! Congratulations Eli Terese! Please contact me so that we can send you the print.

    Outdoor space is great. Indoors is more like a sensory deprivation prison. No thanks.

    Danish ELLE just published their first edition of ELLE Decoration. This apartment is in the magazine. With other pictures though. Just a heads up, if you want to see more of it.

    Svar: It is? Cool! I have the magazine, I just haven't had time to read it yet.
