Preparing the Baby’s Room, by L. McComber Architects

baby room 1 Preparing the Babys Room, by L. McComber Architects

When a newborn baby arrives, it’s usually hard to keep your home untouched. And the changes are pretty radical. Here’s a very daring example where the folks from L. McComber Architects had to suspend the parents bed (a 700sqm loft in Montreal, Canada) in order to make space for the baby’s room. Built using curved douglas fir plywood and tubular steel, everything is delicately¬† illuminated by an opalescent storage wall and luminous bricks. A great investment to make better use of smaller spaces, but we’re still uncertain how safe/practical the ladder is at 2 a.m. in the morning when the baby cries. What do you guys think?

    By Jove, I can only assume that the first few weeks after the
    birth will be spent at grandparent’s!

    Pretty interesting concept. Love the wood and rustic floors. I’m glad those days are over for us. We went for at least 1 1/2 years without getting a good nights sleep.You’ve heard of Chinese torture?

    crying. ;)

    I’m pretty amused that this couple got the bunk bed, not the kid!

    I think it’s a fine idea, but only if you can push a button and have an elevator lift up the baby to the parents’ den.
