The idea of the two-staired bedroom-loft, which is acting as the accented main element of the flat, was envisioned by a young couple. We were trying to validate design and functionality equally, which resulted in our trying to achieve such consistency and homogeneity that can as well incorporate male and female differences.
▼ 室内一览，有两座楼梯的连续跃层卧室空间，overall view of the interior, a two-staired bedroom loft creates a continuous space
The placement of the bed right above the door (as ordered by the clients) created a zigzagged geometry that became a ribbon waving towards the corners of the room and as doing so, started to shape and divide the space around it.
▼ 客厅，浴室门的正上方为床，living room, the bed is right above the door of the bathroom
Sheet metal stairs enveloped in the ribbon form a male side, while the descending ribbon itself counters the former with female delicacy on the other side. This ribbon-like “object” acts simultaneously as floor and ceiling, stairs and bed, shelves and hidden storage. Our aim was to compose a homogenous continuous ribbon, which was achieved by using painted fibreboards (MDF) on a steel supporting structure.

▼ 连接男士空间的金属楼梯包裹在丝带中，设有搁架和储藏室，metal stair to the male side, enveloped in the ribbon which also functions as shelf and storage
▼ 床，设通透的玻璃挡板，bed with transparent glass partition
▼ 在女士空间，丝带自身成为楼梯，下设储藏空间，the ribbon becomes the stair at the female side with storage below
Breaking up the monochromatic whiteness of the living-room, the red-orange loft complemented by the built-in lighting became a vivid nuance in the simple apartment fitting the young style of our clients.
