Once filled with the ringing sound of blacksmiths’ hammers, this former smithy is now a spacious residence in Copenhagen’s Latin Quarter.
Vestiges of the 111-year-old building’s horse-shoeing past can be glimpsed inside, where iron rings are still embedded into the whitewashed walls. Poured concrete floors and a steel staircase add to the industrial character of the three-bedroom home, which is on the market with Adam Schnack for 15.245m DKK.
The Copenhagen property’s layout maximises its 245 sq m space, with a vast open plan living space that includes a kitchen, lounge and dining area, as well as a sizeable downstairs closet and bathroom. A corner of the ground floor, secreted beneath a rugged steel ststaircase, also offers a cosy nook to retire to, complete with a wood-burning stove.
Steps lead up to a mezzanine level, framed with black railings, which creates a second living space looking out over the trees of the nearby courtyard. Here, bedrooms are a little more cosy, but have huge windows that fill the spaces with natural light.
