For Dutch Design Week, Chris Collaris Architects and Dutch Invertuals created Buitenhuis, a home that looks like a modern, Scandinavia-inspired bungalow. However, upon closer inspection of the interior, the home actually has a seemingly impossible second story in the form of a cozy loft snuck beneath the home's gradually angled roof.
Though the loft has limited vertical space, it makes the most of the horizontal space available to it. It has space for a queen bed directly beside the stairs up, and there's a reasonable amount of floor space for lazing around and reading. The loft also has a window that grants views down into the kitchen and dining area, simultaneously allowing the loft to get some light that it might not otherwise have access to.
