About Competition

Brief for “Re Loft” challenge aims to reimagine the concept of lofts by completely changing its perception and design by challenging the imageability that it holds.

As with the changing times our needs have changed drastically and in order to fulfill these needs and also use the development of technology are by rethinking and completely reimagining these spaces.

One of the spaces that have a fixed imageability about them is lofts. The lofts that we have in our homes have a repetitive image and that of saturation, as it is never looked upon through an innovative angle. They are usually used for storage spaces or closed off due to roof leakages/other technicalities.

This change of perception can be caused by breaking all the binding concepts and ideas regarding the loft. But by expanding and creating a kind of loft that expands our scope of thought.

OBJECTIVES

  • Concept –Understand the current imageability of a loft. The constraints and opportunities are available to expand these limitations.
  • Function –Study and estimate the kind of space that will be required by the user group. That will help propose spaces that they need.
  • Convenience –The loft space must be easy to access and use while maintaining comfort in the space throughout the year.
  • Aesthetics – Explore ideas through the use of different materials, openings, lighting, and color palettes. Challenge the typical perception of lofts.
