It comes at no surprise that the architecture world is obsessing over the idea of micro living; not only are micro apartments incredibly space-efficient, but the spaces that result from this constraint are also often incredibly rich. This overlap of functions and programs means steps, level-changes, and secret compartments.
Whether it's for utilizing the minimal space you have or for breaking up larger areas, multi-level and multi-purpose lofts add a playful element of ingenuity to any home. The result is a ludic architecture that creates a stimulating environment reminiscent of playgrounds. My college professor once told me that you should design with the mindset of a child or a cat—if that's the case, then the loft is one of the few ideal forms of architecture out there.
