Attic Antics.

This tiny apartment is located in an attic in Madrid and belongs to a DJ, two facts that should automatically qualify it as the coolest place on Earth. In addition, though, it hosts a multitude of secrets and surprises: trap doors, hidden rooms, movable walls. There's also a swing, a tea room, a hanging table, and a disco ball. "Every house, in its way, is a theater where you perform your everyday life," say the architects. I love that.

And speaking of interiors, my newest interview for Freunde von Freunden is up today. It features fashion designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, who make clothing out of materials like clear leather and fishing line. My favorite bit from our interview? Zoe's remark about an unfortunate haircut from her younger days: "I looked exactly like David Hockney and no one told me it wasn't okay." See the full feature, with photos by Brian Ferry, here.

I really liked this article. Attics are a fascination of mine - I always wanted to have a house with one and maybe fill it with books!
Your interview was great too! That must have been exciting!

When I was little, I used to write stories about attics with old trunks and hidden diaries. I was a little obsessed.

What I wouldn't do for a make-up "hole" in my bathroom floor! Great finds!

This place is the ultimate nook, and I LOVE NOOKS. Cozy and yet somehow still full of light. Awesome.

Shoko, this attic-appartment is amazing! Full of little treasures. Love it!

Kathy said...

So cool! I think if I lived there, I would constantly forget which doors were to what, though.

I also absolutely loved your interview with Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta. I wish I could have tea with them!

Wow! What a space! Why can't Americans have more trap doors/hidden rooms in our architecture?!
