About A Cabin in a Loft

The idea for A Cabin in a Loft came about in 2009 when Chiao and Frezzo decided they wanted to create separate bedroom spaces within their open-plan guest house and artist space. Because floor-to-ceiling walls would have cut off natural light and created a feeling of limited space, the twosome instead constructed two beautiful geometric sleeping areas – a cabin and a treehouse-like space. The two houses inside the loft were built with the communal efforts of several friends and neighbors.

Design

The treehouse is lofted up featuring an elevated floor which sits above a study and storage area. The cute little cabin has a sweet pitched roof, storage space and cutout windows for ventilation and glimpses into the rest of the apartment. Situated between the cabin and loft windows is a semi-private nook that offers a wardrobe rack to hang clothes, as well as a garden. There’s also a shared open space in the loft, between the cabin and treehouse which features a nice living area, kitchen, and large table for eating and working.

Location

The loft and cabins within are located in a former textile factory building in the artists’ neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn, with exposed brick walls and large windows. Both cabins have large entrances, set slightly back from the building’s windows, which look out to the sky and down the street.
