'Live Between Buildings' Puts Lofts in Small Spaces

By: Michael Hines - Published: • References: dezeen
Live Between Buildings is a series of conceptual lofts designed to maximize space in urban areas. These lofts would be built in the narrow gaps between buildings, as indicated by the design's name. Dutch design duo Mateusz Mastalski and Ole Robin Storjohann created Live Between Buildings for the New Vision of the Loft 2 design award, a contest held by rooftop window maker Farko and the architecture magazine A10 New European.

The shapes of each loft are different and take forms as mundane as a circle and as crazy as an alien from Space Invaders. Live Between Buildings was designed for some of the world's most cramped cities, including New York and Tokyo. The concept certainly seems viable and it may only be a matter of time before architects begin looking between buildings. Stats for Gap-Filling Urban Abodes Trending: Older & Popular
