Loft conversion

A lengthy loft in Angers, France

Posted on: juin 6th, 2013 by Freg No Comments


The architect Catherine Leman brilliantly won her bet to transform a former hangar less than 6 meters wide and 27 meters long into a 190 m² loft in Angers, France. Though the length of the building presented the first challenge, the building itself was constructed on sloped ground, which is why the ground floor only houses the garage, a game room and technical space, and the living spaces are all located on the next floor, which opens onto a patio. The patio divides the loft in half. On one side above the garage there is the living room which sprawls across the entire space, and on the other side there are the bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a closet and a bathroom which are half-buried, and two children’s rooms with their bathroom on the second floor.

Two shipping containers in a San Francisco loft

In 2007 Jeff Wardell and Claudia Sagan purchased a 3,200-square- foot former laundry and tooth-powder factory in order to make a loft conversion. They wanted to keep the space open as much as possible (they sleeping room is the only room that is seperated from the rest of the loft). They wanted to create a home office and a guest bedroom without cluttering the space... So they decided to use two shipping containers ! What a crazy fabulous idea !
