A Minimalistic Loft Apartment in a Former School Building
Dutch architecture firm Eklund Terbeek have transformed an early 19th-century school building into 6 apartments. Together with the overal renovation project they were also responsible for designing 1 specific loft. This loft consists of two former classrooms and the adjacent hallway zone. They knocked down the wall between the 2 classrooms to make one big open plan space. By creating a smaller loft zone in the living area did they create a more cozy sitting space. In addition to the characteristic mushroom shaped windows between classroom and corridor a few strategically placed new openings create sightlines and increase the sense of spatiality and light. Color is sparse in this minimalistic loft but I do like the occasional color touches in fabrics and the mustard hallway and bathroom tiles. If you love minimalism, this is perfect for you.
