Lofts are the ultimate trendy living spaces. However, open layouts can be daunting to decorate and turn into modern cozy homes. Maximizing the living and storage spaces, making the best use of high ceilings and windows, or creating dedicated functional areas are top challenges. Many loft owners need help to recreate and personalize their great space canvas. Arcbazar comes to the rescue with an innovative crowdsourcing approach that let homeowners connect with architects around the globe for out-of-the box creative design.
Arcbazar runs international architectural and interior design competitions. Each project is launched online and designers worldwide compete and submit solutions for the new space. Clients can then choose the solution they like most based on their initial evaluation criteria. “We want to bring high-end design to everyday small-scale home remodeling projects. We want our clients to be able to create their dream spaces in an easy, affordable and fun way,” says Imdat As, founder of Arcbazar.com. Hundreds of clients around the globe have already used Arcbazar for successful home remodeling, landscape and interior design projects. “We have helped clients build great kitchens, bathrooms, basements, living spaces and landscapes.”
Yeun L., from New York, had bought a studio loft and needed help with remodeling to be able to accommodate comfortably her sister and small dog. “The apartment hadn’t been renovated in 30 years. [I] would like a lot of storage and to maximize the efficiency of the spaces.” Yeun run a design competition on Arcbazar and received eleven proposals, ultimately opting for a design from Mihaela Staykova, an architect from Bulgaria. A similar experience had Erik D., who owned a loft in an historical landmark building in S. Francisco. Eric was looking for a complete remodel to update and modernize what was previously a factory space. The competition received several great entries with the winning proposal coming from Marina Dil, a designer from Georgia.
