In the heart of ‘s-Hertogenbosch a former office and workshop was completely renovated and converted into a loft. Because the building is 20 meters deep and really only has light at the front and rear, access of daylight has been an important theme. The explicit wish of the client was to be able to enjoy the property as one large space. Various voids/vides were introduced that allow daylight to penetrate deep into the home. The voids provide glimpses between the various residential functions themselves. The functional elements such as bathroom, toilets, storage room and kitchen are grouped in one large timber volume that also connects the floors. From the bath you can look right through the void into the sky.

This loft apartment located in a late 19th century house presents an interesting challenge: how to recover the graceful proportions of the living room while taking advantage of the possibilities offered by an earlier alteration which had inserted intermediate levels.

The Owner is a business executive and collector of animal trophies who wanted a space that would allow him to display his growing collection and enhance its impact. He also wanted a home with the quality of a retreat from his frequent business travels.

The lower level is a space for entertaining—its public character underlined by a large open space which includes a kitchen with the bar table and dining corner.  This level also contains two suites—one containing living, media and guest bedroom; the other, the master bedroom, bath, dressing and utility areas.

The guest bedroom is separated from the office space by large glazed sliding doors which are designed to be left open most of the time.

The master bedroom suite is anchored on either end by unusual spaces—on one by a bath with a large steam shower and cabinetry, on the other by a large steel sliding door leading into the living room.

The stair then becomes a steel ribbon structure which flies above the lower level.  The upper level comprehend second master bedroom with the small bathroom and big dressing room and living area with the entrance to the terrace.

The color scheme for the unit is universally white for the walls, floors and ceilings.  The animal trophies provides the color accents as do the wooden beams and several steel elements.

Loft Dusseldorf/Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners

Location : Dusseldorf, Germany

Area : 600.0 sqm

Year : 2006


Architects: Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners

Photographs: Jean-Luc Laloux


Bruno Erpicum was the architect entrusted with designing this warehouse conversion. It is now the home of a couple with a passion for architecture who were keen to make one of Düsseldorf’s rare ruins their own. The reconversion was closely overseen by the administrative authorities, since this old factory in the city centre miraculously avoided damage during the many bombings of World War II.

Across from the coachman’s passageway are some garages that stand in front of the entrance court. The court is dotted with screens that flank the entrance and seclude off the “day patio”. The history of the city is reflected in the glass panels, reminding you of the building’s heritage. A facade made entirely of glass stands completely independently of the old structures, showing off their immense scale.

The building is now protected against the elements and complies with energy performance requirements. The study opens boldly onto the garage and gym. The gloss painted furniture designed by architect Bruno Erpicum reflects the structural elements. A vast white space devoid of any accessories houses the sleeping accommodation in the conversion; the rotating door appears to be floating in the air. An enormous living room is arranged between the pilasters that are displayed with pride. The artist’s design highlights the existing brickwork that supports the flagstone roof; here again the wear inflicted over time is openly displayed. The architecture unpretentiously magnifies the materials.

The kitchen is arranged in the exterior deambulatory. The bedroom is housed in a “white box” that has been perfected with the utmost care. It is encircled by a “night patio” illuminated using zenithal light that sweeps across the surrounding brickwork. The light itself becomes a material, rebounding off the objects it touches and reminding us of the building’s history. The walls of the bedroom are perfectly smooth, whereas the bathroom is surrounded by rough pilasters (p. 106-107). A flow of natural light is ensured by the night patio, a space created by the removal of the roof around the edge of the bedroom. Pieces of raw concrete were used to create the bath, shower and washbasin. The starry ceiling over the Turkish bath completes the composition.

Project based on the concept of a transformable loft in a traditional apartment thanks to the “Daniela Scared” sliding panels in walnut, which can divide the individual rooms or, if left open, create a unique environment fully accessible with no doors or barriers.

The complete circumnavigation of the apartment around a central body, consisting of bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and laundry, allows panoramic views of the mountains and the Mole to be the main object of a scene made of glass and windows. The fully glazed living room is divided into three zones, zone sofa and dining area on the same level, while the TV area gets up to thirty inches on a wooden platform hosts a bookcase resting on the ground and through the use of cushions becomes a sofa to read books or watch TV in the underlying relaxation.

Steps in black American larch, stuck individually on the wall of the hall that leads to a loft consists of a second bedroom with cupboard with sliding doors in black sisal, and bathroom area.

The use of the resin in the floor stems from the desire to approach the concept of loft that makes all the objects resting on the floor neutral, predominant elements on the volume that contains them. Raised sleeping area by a collection of fifteen cm wall paneling always walnut by “Daniela Scared.”

Master bathroom with bath and sanitary area housed in a volume of natural oak and stone in which insinuates a shower of glass and resin. White lacquered kitchen through the hallway that connects to the dining table. All this surrounded by a beautiful terrace that surrounds the entire villa at 360 degrees.

Commercial Space Turned into a Loft in Terrassa (Barcelona) by Egue y Seta


Commercial Space Turned into a Loft

Terrassa (Barcelona), 2013


Area: 200 sqm

Designers: Egue y Seta

Commercial Space Turned into a Loft

Egue y Seta has once again managed to avoid blank solid walls to favour semi-transparent partitions made of greenery as a more sensuous and bland alternative. With their latest project the studio has proven that just about 10 linear meters of walls are more than enough to articulate the more private areas of the house to those meant to welcome and share with the guests.

This house with a “lofty” soul and “Green” heart redefine what transparency and spatial openness means to designers and homeowners.

From the outside, the vertical shutters draw wooden strips over a sight of a rich green hedgerow and a leafy bush? Are they just the outside trees reflected over the windows panes? Or are these transparencies?

To step in this former commercial space turned into a loft, we need to open a wide and generous solid “Iroco” wood set of double doors with iron fittings custom made at the owner´s iron foundry. And as soon as we set foot over the natural oak parquet, we are welcomed by a huge “fish tank” without fish, were leaves and green blossoms float in amidst almost liquid light. We are not talking about the typical bamboo reeds, nor about the very solemn Zen like interior garden, but about an arrangement of local trees of varying heights over a bed of pine bark splashed over by a cascade of light beaming from a false skylight. Surrounding this spectacular garden: The whole house.

To the left, caved in the building foundations, we find the living room, surrounded by oversized steps over which an “U” shaped arrangement of cement colour velvet cushions work as a sofa. Over it, an eclectic but subtle mix of designer, hand made, and vintage cushions. From the living room area one can look directly into the interior garden, but also out, through the large window panes; and facing in the opposite direction, the dining area and the kitchen just a few centimetres away but at a higher level.

In the dining area, the superb Bedrock Plank A wooden table by the Italian brand Riba 1920, surrounded by the timeless Eames chairs in a concrete tone. The whole arrangement lit by two bundles of oversized clear balloon light bulbs that hang from a deep grey industrial ceiling with metallic beams. To the right a “one of a kind” motorcycle restored by the family craftsmen.

Behind the dining areas you´ll find a seemingly technical and industrial kitchen that offers a clean and sophisticated look due to the large and shiny vertical planes of stainless steel that sheet all cabinet doors and side panels. But at the same time, the combination with natural wood horizontal worktops, give the space a cosy warmth while making it practical when it comes to prepare the wholesome dishes and fancy cocktails the whole area seems to be asking for.

All this metallic sparkle and stainless steel sheeting enclose the latest generation appliances: a double side by side refrigerator with a wine cellar (Liehber), a panelled grain coffee maker, a smart induction cook top with teppanyaki hot plate, a carbon filter extraction hood, and a laundry and ironing station with means of drainage and ventilation integrated within a cabinet (all AEG). Behind a sliding crystal door a transparent storage pantry exhibits all types of local delicacies, fresh cooking species and wines, all lit up by rail directional projectors cutting themselves out from a dark chalkboard background.

Hanging over the isle that works as a storage space and preparation surface at the same time, a pair of vintage “Lindse” iron lamps by Francisco Segarra, and surrounding the piece, five metallic “Bofinger” stools of the same brand turn the area into a bar and the perfect place for brunch.

Going around the living room, this time through the left corridor, we step over a concrete runway over which a set of powerful light projectors have been built into the floor in order to gently grace from beneath a naked craft brick wall. Towards the end of this corridor a large solid oak swinging door, without handle or lock, seems to promise to be always open to welcome you to the more private areas of the house.

In the master’s bedroom, the bed and headboard stand out for their unique, honest and apparently simple design. Nevertheless, the custom made piece fabricated with natural oak and metallic sewer grates, is at the same time bed frame, night stand, lit headboard, dividing partition and shoe rack on its back side. Behind it, a walk in closet of pure geometry made of anthracite grey laminate reflects itself on a backstage like full size mirror, while offering a soft and confortable dark carpet flooring and just enough storage and seating space for a couple who likes to dress for the occasion and to collect sport shoes. To the right hand side of the bed, and leaning against the wall a two seater chesterfield couch upholstered in tobacco leather by Francisco Segarra is crowned by a couple of stuffed fabric reindeer heads (Luzio) which are true decorative trophies. Wrapped in the raw wool blankets that dress the bed one could watch a movie projected on a roll away screen that stores itself away within the wooden pendant ceiling, so the main interior garden is always visible through the master´s bathroom´s transparent enclosure.

Here intimacy is redefined and it is subject to either loneliness or the closing of the wooden venetian blinds. In exchange, the room offers a joyful sight directly into the garden, natural light and a marvellous sense of spatial openness. The elongated rectangular shape that defines the bathroom it is laid out symmetrically so to offer two toilet seats and two independent vanity tops separated by an enormous common shower tray over which an oversized ceiling mounted shower sprinkler promises to pour down like rain. At the back end of the tray, a framed concrete bench hosts a set of designer stainless steel shower taps while running past the glass partitions at each side of the shower to turn itself in to a vanity top. Over this portion, bowl shaped porcelain sinks (Roca), slim sophisticated taps and a set of mirrors hanging from the ceiling virtually floating against the green background. The suspended toilet seats and its recessed push buttons were built in walls covered with white rectangular bevelled tiles, in the style of those in old metro stations so to convey some urban feeling to the space.

Walking across the bedroom, the wooden flooring guides us to the opposite side of the house, and this vaguely varnished oak corridor, towards its end, turns itself into a desk, due to the change in the floor level that once again is caved in the foundations of the building so to create a lower and enclosed home office area and entertainment room. The whiteness of the enveloping walls its here interrupted by a plane sheeted in corten steel that add depth and texture to the room while chromatically relating to the hand made sofas with leather seats and grey wool backs installed over wooden palets with wheels. Little more can this room ask for but a couple of abstract paintings, if we take into consideration that while seating here, you also have once again, a privileged view onto the garden and the outside of the house.

Just before coming full circle around the garden and returning to the entrance hall, the visitor might want to use the toilet: Behind a sliding door, and covered in handmade clay enamelled tiles, the courtesy toilet stands as the hidden “green” jewel of the house. Looking directly into the interior garden you can wash your hands in a slender pedestal sink with a slim stainless steel floor tap (Muse – Catalano). Its recessed nickel push button blends in with a wall size mirror in the back which allows for a brief make up retouch, but most importantly, one that brings into the interior of the room all the freshness and shades of green that make this house a comfortable refuge and a wild urban paradise.

When dealing with the refurbishment of this old carpenter’s workshop placed at Barcelona’s Poble Sec neighbourhood, the main goal was to set up this space for inhabitation while the main constructive components were mantained. They gave charm and singularity to the space.

These elements were poorly conserved. Brick and stone walls were hidden under thick linings of gypsum and mortar, as well as the ceiling surface was. Wodden beams in the ceiling were vastly damaged by termites at points, and it could affect the whole building stability.

However, the property had multiple light openings. The existance of an inner patio allowed us to use translucent glass in the street windows to keep the house privacy. The main spaces of the house will be visually connected with the courtyard which will be their focus point.

The existing valuable components which we wanted to restore formed the upper shell of the project: walls and roof. Owing to that the floor would be the new constructed element in charge of the space configuration. It becomes a magma that fills the whole base of the space. It creates open areas that are organized with the levels and objects generated.

First of all, it solves the conflict produced by the two entrances at different heights. It also gives a solution for the relation between the main level and the patio level which is depressed by 45cm.


In second place, some of the fixed furniture of the house is raised from the floor. The living-room sofa, the kitchen tables and some of the bathroom sinks are brick-made, and covered with a concrete lining as the floor is.

In some of the main areas generated, space is organized with the use of closed boxes. They contain the more private uses of the house, such as bathrooms and dressing rooms. With its positioning, bedroom spaces are also generated, remaining separated from the daytime areas of the house.

The layout singularity arises from the owner requirements. He wanted to have a small independent apartment for the frequent visitors he will have during the year. At the same time, this space will be used as his studio while no guests are in the house. That is the reason why house is conceived with two separated spaces that can be used independently if wanted.
