You Have to See This Treehouse Built Inside a Studio Apartment!
A Cabin in a Loft, located in Brooklyn, New York, is one part studio apartment, one part treehouse and all parts cool. Living and working in their one-room apartment, owners and artists Terri and Adam realized they needed a little more privacy to separate their home decor business, Chiaozza, from their private life. Instead of throwing up big walls that close off the space and sacrificing the sunny, loft feeling, Terri decided to go for something a little more creative — a treehouse.
If you’re trying to figure out how to make a small space seem even bigger, the last thing you’d consider is adding a treehouse, but that’s exactly what Terri did. Inspired by the tall ceilings, Terri, an architect and designer, enlisted her artistic friends to help her build two freestanding structures in her apartment — a loft and a cabin. Terri took a lot of inspiration from Japanese and Scandinavian decor with raw materials and clean, minimalist design.
Both Terri and Adam are also crazy talented DIYers, from their handmade dining room table made out of sawhorse legs to their colorful hanging shelving. They also love indoor plants and have a huge collection. Terri mentioned in an interview with Racked that it takes almost two hours to water them all. Along with their indoor plants, they also make their own papier-mâché plants, which they call “lump nubbins.” If you think they are adorable and need one to add to your indoor garden, check out the Chiaozza website.
The treehouse stairs lead up to a little bedroom where the couple displays all their favorite pieces of art in a gallery wall. However, they prefer to sleep underneath the platform for a little extra privacy and some fabulous morning light.
Are you digging this hanging shelf as much as we are? (Psst, you can DIY your own hanging shelf right here.)
Putting together a gallery wall is easy when you and all your friends are artists and designers. The loft doubles as an occasional gallery and library featuring art made by friends and fellow artists, designers and artisans. If you fall in love with the art while you’re renting the loft (oh, yeah did we mention they rent out this gem by the month on occasion?), you’ll be happy to know that some of the pieces are for sale.
Dealing with a tiny kitchen in a simple and minimal manner, Terri put up long, open shelves to display kitchen items and (no surprise) more plants.
Adding the pitched roof to the cabin kept the sense of openness while still using the windows to their full potential. Sunlight floods into the communal living space with a kitchen, family room and a big dining room table. Terri had the whole treehouse built for just $2,000. Pretty impressive for a project that turned a studio apartment into a two-bedroom space.
The next time you’re looking for a place to stay in Brooklyn, see if this sunny design haven is available for renting and let us know how it is.
