Montage: 36 Lofts and Houses with Mezzanines

I feel like I’m at the point in my life where I’m not collecting ideas for my “dream” house. Will I live here the rest of my life? No, but we’re set for now. And, I’m lucky enough to have a great apartment in Boston and a place or two to escape to in winter and summer. But having had the opportunity to build a house from the ground up a number of years ago, I definitely wonder what I would do differently if I were to undertake such a project today.

I remember, at one of our first meetings, the architects suggesting a cathedral ceiling and open second floor mezzanine. I shot them down immediately. I’m still glad we didn’t do that (images of the boys hanging over the railings, yelling, shooting foam darts from their Nerf guns, and flying remote controlled helicopters from above still haunt me), but I can appreciate the appealing in certain situations.

I love a mezzanine library, for instance. Or an open master bedroom, complete with enormous soaking tub, on a mezzanine in a romantic aerie for two. And certainly, the visual appeal of soaring ceilings and oversize plate glass windows is alluring, but I still maintain it’s just too noisy and impractical for a family, at least one like mine. Here are 34 residences with mezzanines, with many different vibes.
