Finding a space for all your personal belongings in a house or apartment can often be a challenge, but designers Lynda and Peter Benoit of Melander Architects have designed 'The Box-Within-A- Box.' This adjustment converted a small loft apartment into spacious oasis.

Lynda and Peter Benoit of Melander Architects were given the assignment of remodeling a small California loft apartment. The apartment (located in a former steam engine factory) is 1,100 sq ft in size. The designers created a custom 16x17x10 ft box made of wood that accommodates a bedroom on the inside, a large bookshelf on the outside and a beautiful dressing room on top, complete with an office.

This is easily any loft owners dream situation, a place to put the bulk of your possessions while still leaving plenty of room for living. The photos speak for themselves on the true artistry of this apartment. Stats for Boxed Interior Abodes Trending: Older & Buzzing
