Taste loft living at this Brussels apartment in the city’s Dansaert design district – sitting on the second floor of a converted brewery.
The brick building dates back to 1883 and sits between the Canal and the Bourse in the Belgian capital. It has been converted into a cache of large lofts that retain the site’s industrial character thanks to exposed timber beams and rafters, polished concrete floors, and painted brick walls.
Cast iron pilasters typical of the city’s 19th-century buildings, cross the Brussels property – currently arranged as two apartments totalling 450 sq m and listed via Belgium Sotheby’s International for €1.07m. It’s been curated in a ‘new minimalism’ fashion, though sadly the furniture, antiques and eccentric curios aren’t included in the price tag. Still, there’s plenty to fuel the imagination for its next owner.
The first apartment comprises a large living room, kitchen and bedroom, while the other 225 sq m unit has two bedrooms. From the look of it, the pair of dwellings are currently used as a live/work arrangement and are marketed for possible conversion into one giant apartment.
