From the agent: "This triplex loft offers very bright volumes, connected by a gentle circulation in half-levels. The clever layout of the spaces takes advantage of the typology of the artist’s studio by maximizing the available surface without losing the comfort of a high ceiling. The interior has been completely redesigned to offer a wide variety of uses, by implementing a varied palette of materials where the contemporary blends with the old with finesse.The industrial-style metal structures painted white contrast with the natural and warm wood of the floors and fittings. The raw concrete, left visible, rubs shoulders with bright colors, and the whole is enlivened by decorative winks of pop inspiration, like vibrant tiles."

The apartment spans three levels, and it features frosted glass partitions that can be easily closed off while letting in ample light.

On the first floor is a large living room, set under a glass roof. An open kitchen and dining area are located half a level below.  

Above the kitchen is an office area, complete with bespoke, angular shelving which doubles as a room divider. 

A glass-enclosed, tree house–like sleeping nook overlooks the main living area below.

The colorful ground floor hosts an indoor rock climbing wall, a bathroom, and a laundry room.
