Located in the city of Hasselt, Belgium, is the unapologetic Hidden Loft. It is a bold and drastic vision of a retreat, created by architect Karla Menten. The expansive dwelling, clocking in at 240m², is very much rooted on the white cube aesthetic, making for a perfect opposition of the excessive visual stimulation of the surrounding city. Interestingly enough, this project serves as the architect’s own haven and workplace—a bold standard to withhold against her subsequent work.
