When you live in a city, sometimes you have to sacrifice space in order to get a view. These amazing spaces have done just that by taking over the top floors of their buildings and creating living spaces that are not only defined by their lofty locations, but by their beautiful design and practical space planning.
One of the greatest moments in this space featured on du côté de chez vous.com is how the living and functional areas are planned to specifically take advantage of the highest parts of the ceiling. Planned this way, minimal space is actually lost to the slope of the roofline which is reserved for lower use items, chairs, benches countertops and even the tub in the bathroom.
Of course, with a top floor as voluminous as this one found over at furniteka, there is no need to design so conservatively. Still, white walls, ceilings and beams lend even more airiness to this beautiful living space.
This Stockholm Studio found in Dwell (photos by Per Magnus Persson) is another shining example of how great space planning and beautiful design can help get the most out of a challengingly shaped space.
Lastly, though the space here in this apartment found on (DE) is considerably more lofty than the others and thus in less need of creative space considerations, the gorgeous barn-wood rafters against the white backdrop of the entire space is show stopping.
Have you or would you ever live in an attic apartment or flat?
