For two years, Sofia, Bulgaria-based architect Dimitar Karanikolov and interior designer Veneta Nikoliva have been sprucing up Loft 9b, a petite but sophisticated attic apartment that raises the standard for all other attic apartments. At the center of the space is dark, giant "cube." While indoor cubes are often used to hide beds, lounges, meeting rooms, etc., this one, clad in concrete panels, tucks in a bathroom and conveniently hides the building's elevator shaft. Another bespoke element? The wardrobe in the master bathroom was designed to look like vintage suitcases, an idea that has now spun off into a separate furniture line, called the Loftcase.
