    Default Stable conversion

    It’s time to branch out and loosen up our definition of “loft”. A home does not necessarily need to be located in a city to have the elements of loft living, especially when conversions are involved. Case in point: Check out this awesome stable-turned-live/work space from Brussels. We don’t know many details, but here is the description of the space from the photographer Ocvirk Kus Danica’s profile on OWI’s website:

    “A former stable house has been converted into a photography studio, office space and living area on the top floor.”
    What makes the space so great are the original elements of the structure that have been simplified with white paint and concrete. They have used the stalls as rooms, keeping the main area open save a long dining table, chandelier, and swing. And how about that oh-so-stunning circular window that serves as an anchor for the space. The benefits of practicing restraint (notice not one thing is hung on the wall) are perfecting exemplified here, where the uniqueness of the building takes center stage.

    i am in love. i want it. it's perfect.
    i'd burn the ugly leather sofas and restore the beams to the original wood or metal or whatever they are, but overall it's gorgeous. what a building.

    Christ, what did they do...just go inside with a giant paint sprayer and spray every surface, top to bottom, with white paint? Great space, HORRIBLY done.

    I like it, because they preserved the integrity of the space while making it livable, unlike that renovated church house...

    I like it, but it needs some color/character.

    It's so weird but interesting. I love it. I can't say I'd want to live there but I think it's awesome.
