The busy city of Rotterdam is filled with small living spaces, smartly designed. Due to the municipality’s idea of revitalizing the pre-war buildings, many small apartments have suffered “overnight makeovers”, borrowing glimpses of the urban core. The industrial landscape served as an inspiration for the urban homes. The Vertical Loft is one of the most recent residential projects completed by Shift Architecture Urbanism, fitting the description. Located in the busy center of Rotterdam, the ingenious dwelling spreads on three levels, all connected through steel staircases, of industrial inspiration. An oversized library, now this is the interesting part! Speading vertically on all three floors, one can access the books while climbing the stairs.

The narrow frame facilitated a customized home design. The interior is quite pleasant despite the choice of bringing  concrete floors and steel details inside. Minimalism is one of the obvious trends adopted. The house embraces an opened space concept, so you keep a track of everything by simply spinning… on the staircases. The loft is adorned with simple elements of design and it offers vertical circulation. The three levels have different atributions. The main floor is reserved for dining, the second floor for work and relaxation and the top floor accommodates the bedrooms. Beautiful and minimalist, the Vertical Loft is a a great solution and an example of smart design.
