Originally, the building was built in the 1930s as a shoe factory. But today, it was transformed into a very nice apartment. The clients were drawn to the expansive windows of the structure, though the old arrangement of rooms meant that these were always partially hidden from view. The project brief was to transform the warehouse space, while taking close consideration of the scale, grain and detailing of the existing architecture. Another goal is to create something very personal to the homeowners while representing something of their histories. One of the owners has a film background and he found the roughness and authenticity of the old factory very appealing. The project is urban in complexity yet strangely archaic /prehistoric in its base simplicity. When you look in the interior of the apartment, it is dominated by a black steel cube which reflects the inhabitant's passions and their love for material quality of an elemental nature.
Apartment M Features Creative Ways to Define a Space. The apartment, located in the heart of Bucharest, offers a panoramic view towards the urban landscape. The family's way of life is similar to the context, being communicative, flexible and dynamic. These aspects were the main elements that lead to the definition of the new functional and spatial scheme: the opening of the daytime spaces, but without giving up the possibility of separating them if needed, and the separation of the night time area, that offers a high level of intimacy for each family member. Hence, the end result for the design of Apartment M integrates the kitchen and the office to the existing generous living room as an intersection of two rectangular volumes, with the dining area, right in the center of this intersection, becoming a “hot spot” of the house. Thus, functions merge into a common image, where wood, both horizontally and vertically disposed, covering storage area, provides fluidity and unity of the space, creating a neutral background at the same time.
An Industrial Apartment In An Old Shoe Factory In London. Without a doubt, the interior design of a home can be influenced not just by the owner's choice but also by many other factors. This may include the trend in the location, the history of the location or even the original usage of the spaces if the area is a mere renovation. In many cases, when a space is once a factory, the interior would usually have an industrial feel because of the nature of the home's architecture. This is what happened to the industrial apartment we will feature today.
