Making room for growing families is not as easy as it sounds in a city like New York, especially not without making a sacrifice or two when it comes to space. That was exactly what the owners of this lofty Brooklyn apartment wanted to avoid when they enlisted the architects at Barker Freeman to add an extra bedroom.

To help preserve the double-height ceiling, Barker Freeman installed a floating room that maintained the visual connection between the two floors. A cube-like structure was elevated 30-inches above the upper floor, with a strip of glass filling in the resulting gap. As a result, the family was able to create an entirely new space for their two children without feeling like the loft was shrinking.
