From the architect. The challenge was to furnish a 100 sqm space “casco” in a spirit “loft” , within a tiny budget. In order to preserve crossing spaces and to bring depth into the views, the idea was simple: to insert all the technical and functional elements in a piece of furniture, placed itself all along the side wall. Then, we put a central volume (bathroom) in the middle of the loft. To this one are grafted a designed furniture (as a Hi-Fi corner in the living room, a desk and a library) which induces separation between two distinct spaces (bedroom on one side, office/guest room on the other).

There is also a concept of modularity via a large sliding door over all the width of the apartment, making it possible to close and open spaces. As conclusion, the room is raised by a estrade, which confers to him its own space statute in relation with the other places of the loft. Thinking at the economy, grounds and ceilings are left rough as such without any modification. The will is to offer an installation of furniture which organize the space. This space wants to be sober, purified, emphasized by specific keys of color and the texture of the existing ground.

Hi,
to answer your questions:
entrance is on top right corner if you look at the draw. You enter by the nice terrasse
Empty? Right, photograh like to clean up mess before they shoot ;)
Where? It is next to the South Station in Brussels.
Sliding door? Yes, there is one just in the middle, separating kitchen/living room of the bedroom side.
Hope I answer all your questions
JC

many tks, JC. beyond all this, it's a nice project.

dados · April 05, 2010

This is bothering me... The lower window in the living room is drawn differently than the others, like it is a sliding door or something.. maybe that's the entrance?

Beam me, Mr.Spock!

Polina · April 05, 2010

Seriously, where is it?
Nice fit out though.

This is Seth Brundle's house. And that is not a shower!

Michael · April 05, 2010

You are born inside it.
Haven't you seen THX 1138?

KDS · April 05, 2010

Dumb question, but where's the entrance to this unit?

César Castro · April 05, 2010 06:06 AM

I was wondering exactly the same thing.

marcela · April 05, 2010 05:19 AM
