Brooklyn’s ‘hive loft’ creates private nooks within an open, industrial space

This quirky interior design project, for an apartment on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, came from the owner's desire to preserve their open, industrial loft space while adding some extra privacy and separation. The task fell to OS Architecture, a Manhattan-based firm that's done interior design around the world. As the firm notes, the main goal was "avoiding conventional partitions that would have closed off the space." So they got creative, creating a "single faceted form that could be enclosed and private at times," but still interlocked with the larger space of the open loft. Ultimately this interior object, separate from the columns, ceiling and walls of the apartment, makes for an interesting design talking piece.
