Unlike many other loft apartments, all 3 bedrooms have doors so privacy can be maintained. Reclaimed bank doors open into a small lobby that leads to one of the guest bedrooms, on one side and through to the rest of the apartment, on the other.

I designed the layout to remind me of my time living in an open planned apartment in London. The Master bedroom has a 'removable wall' that allows it to open up onto the living space, creating the feel of a large studio/warehouse apartment.

The main guest bedroom is at the opposite end of the apartment, further enhancing the privacy when there are multiple people staying. The study has been converted into a third bedroom. All of the windows overlooking the main street have two sets of glazing (which is unusual in South Africa), so the street noise is drastically reduced. 

A balcony that overlooks the internal atrium of the building. As it is north facing, this provides a really bright outdoor space, but is shielded from the noise of the city center.
