This two-bedroom industrial loft lies inside a converted foundry in Paris’s Roquette district and features a soaring atrium living space.
The 2,400 sq ft French home sits beneath the original factory roof, which dates from the early 20th century, and has a saw-toothed, complex metal frame design.
As part of the foundry’s adaptive reuse, its tall chimney – a cylindrical brick volume – has been retained and is tucked into the corner of the kitchen where views of it are also captured through high windows above.
The three-storey Paris property is on the market for €1.575m via Patrice Besse. It has a metal-framed upper floor, with wooden partition walls and a floating staircase overlooking the main living space. There’s also a large basement with tons of potential uses, including an artist’s studio, exhibition room and even a small concert hall.
