Riverside Drive - A Loft/Storage/Bed System and Indoor Basketball Court
Mission : To create a system of sleep, play, lounge and levels for an active 7 year old boy in Manhattan. The client needed ample storage, lighting and multi-use/functioning elements. The client also requested squeezing in a basketball court. Mission accomplished.
Here the bed is in the lower area and can be positioned head to toe under the loft or outward facing. The loft lounge area above, outfitted with a clear plexi railing, is perfect for reading or playing his guitar. Notice the sliding hanging guitar storage panel. Both lower and upper levels of the loft system have separate under-mount lighting controls
Here the bed is on the upper level and the lower level becomes a huge play table with lipped edges. Plenty of storage throughout the system, hidden in steps, panels and platforms! Forgive the blurry images as these were pieced together in an iPhone app. I will soon replace these with professional images of the space!
The basketball court complete with faux wooden interlocking soft floor tiles.
