When expanding isn’t an option, as in this nineteenth-century building in Wroclaw, Poland, you have no choice but to find a way to fit a kitchen, bathroom, living area, bedroom and storage within confines that can seem impossibly small. But architecture firm 3XA put pretty much every major space-saving design technique to work for this renovation, resulting in a space that feels airy, elegant and well-organized. Multi-functionality: the narrow, space-saving stairs leading up to the loft double as a bookcase, organizing the residents’ reading materials, trinkets and a stereo system.

In the hallway, opposite from the bathroom, built-in shelving and clothes rods create a closet area that’s also providing structural support for the loft platform. In this case, tucking the kitchen away in the corner maintains a visual connection between this vital function and the living room, encouraging conversation, but the bed isn’t directly exposed to cooking odors. Restrained color palette: black and white contrast with the textural chipboard that makes up the loft, stairs and dining table, while white-washed wood floors retain a sense of character and warmth with minimal visual distractions.
