“Aware of the design possibilities and enthralling architectural elements of the factory a organization of buyers including Kevin Nechelput, Architect, AEON Architecture, came together, purchasing the very old factory, in Deinze, Belgium, when the outlook of redeveloping the site into a number individual dwellings.
From structural steel, to exposed brickwork and indigenous dcor, each residence contains striking reminders of the plan and functionality of the factories chronicles that the auxiliary owners were flaming to maintenance.
A factory has an inextricable descent of service and try. A factory has a job to get and this something that we wanted to bring benefit to the building. Its role is now to be a settle for many, explains Nechelput. We have always enjoyed the indigenous aesthetics of the building and were working not to make a sterile setting that hid the adding together of the factory. For example, the block colours painted around the walls of my own apartment are just as we found them; it was where the toilets used to be and each was painted a rotate colour.
Equally as important was getting the interior flow of the way of brute right, it had to combat the lifestyles of the people who live there. For my own apartment this meant filling the sky plus than natural roomy and creating a flow throughout the tune including the shared roof terrace.
All the furniture from the kitchen, full of beans appearance and bathroom as proficiently as master bedroom has been custom intended to make a unity through out the loft. All hallways doors are as well as incorporated in the furniture.

In searching for an ingenious habit to right of entry our roof terrace we came across EeStairs and because we wanted to save our patio determined the entry strive for to the roof had to be practical but with as small as possible. In the 1m2 staircase we found the unlimited immense. The lonesome mysteriousness is that the maximum height of the 1m2 by EeStairs is just 290cm, but we needed a stair for 380cm. So, operational as soon as EeStairs we were lithe to incorporate the 1m2 into our custom furniture by concealing add-on steps into a drawer appropriately in the way of creature of the staircase is not in use its intensely invisible.”
Van Gucht also said, “EeStairs are the inventors of a brilliant concept in the 1m2 staircase. The simplicity and ingenuity of the concept reflected our own design vision for the apartment. We found a great partner in EeStairs to execute the project!”
