5. Mezzanine as linking bridgeA mezzanine acting as a bridge is a great way to link one space with another, effectively creating an elevated thoroughfare and a great vantage point to call out to those below. Its appeal lies in its simple linear structure – it doesn’t need to have any purpose or house any furniture. It’s a brief stopover where the volume of the double-height space reveals itself before you move into the recesses of the home. Tip: To create a bridge effect, aim to keep it the same width as a hallway. Any wider and its translation as a bridge will be lost and it simply becomes an elevated room.
9. Cook up a cool corridorNot all mezzanines are rooms in their own right. This one is simply the corridor leading to the upstairs bedrooms, but being able to see it from below creates a sense of connectivity in the house and allows light to flood the space.
