Less is More: Loft Bed Makes Room for Baby


Steve Montpetit photography

What do you do in a 700 square foot loft when the kid comes along? Go up.

That is what Montreal architect Laurent McComber did to make room for a small infant.

The architect describes it:

Levitation. This large "love bed" seems to float over a sleeping baby's room. The imposing slab of fir plywood is molded to the sinuous curves of its tubular steel support. These one hundred fifty square feet are simply walking on air, gently illuminated by an opalescent storage wall and luminous bricks.
