An architect’s warehouse loft is for sale in Brussels

Part of an award-winning adaptive reuse project

Old contrasts new at this Brussels loft, which is part of an award-winning conversion of a 1920s Pyrex depot in Molenbeek.

Architectslab oversaw the transformation of the site, which comprises two concrete warehouses and a townhouse which served as the Pyrex offices. The practice removed a damaged piece of the building at the centre of the plot to create a communal courtyard and filling the surrounding structures with apartments and offices.

‘Recovering as much as possible was a conscious choice,’ practice co-founder William Froidmont told Bouw & Wonen. ‘The original elevator, the granite floors, the parquet, the panelling, the stucco’.

This 206 sqm loft – on the market via Architecten Woning for €725,000 – was previously owned by architect Bart America, and has floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden shutters, and exposed brickwork.

Modernist and art deco touches, as well as original wooden beams, have been integrated to create a soft industrial vibe across the two-bedroom loft. Meanwhile, the old office doors now divide the kitchen and living room.
