Abandoned buildings are greatly wasted. They are usually left without care and remain haunted. If just we think smartly and wisely, we can do better and even more. There is a completely abandoned industrial bakery located Liège, Belgium which was awesomely transformed into a super cool futuristic house.
The design which was used to renovate and completely remodeled the house is the work of Dethier Architectures. This is a space where a couple with no children lives who was very interested in precision engineering. The loft is incredibly spacious with more room to explore.
The project was quite ambitious which also tried to get rid of stereotype attached to industrial space. It followed client’s profile rather than the site’s historical nature. There were some cutting-edge finishings done here which was quite tough to get aesthetic and nice look to the loft.
The tie beams were removed and the rafters with metal plates were strengthened to open up the space maximally. The focus was mainly for the space’s layout, function and sensitivity. This 154 sq. m open area includes several spaces such as two bathrooms, storage areas, a toilet and the heating and ventilation systems. After meeting the entrance, you will see areas such as hall, office, lounge, kitchen, dining room, bedroom and dressing room.
Some materials used include aluminum cladding and some detailing which were all inspired by the Airstream trailer’s aerodynamic aesthetic. For the bathrooms, Jean Glibert as a talented artist helped to select colors. For the other spaces, white become the major color to match some brushed aluminum skins.
You can expect high technology furnishing here with the coolest looks. Last but not least, the terrace is very vast letting the dwellers to have a direct access with the neighbors and chance to enjoy the surroundings.
