In Mont Owl’s Head, Quebec, lived an old barn that had lost its way and fallen into ruin. The owners (who live in an adjacent home), wanting to save the barn, decided to have it renovated so their children could enjoy it. La Firme was brought on board to bring it back to life and the resulting 30 ft height structure is the coolest hangout in town.
I’m chasing the dream in the Melbourne suburb of Brunswick where a warehouse conversion with separate studio at the rear has caught my eye. The unimposing gray facade provides no clues as to the industrial meets textural, monochrome with a hint of coastal interior. Shouldn’t work you’d think but what could have been a stark interior is warm and welcoming. Bonus is if I buy it you can come visit and stay in the cute as a button studio. Link here while it lasts.
Quenching my thirst for industrial lofts with this location home beauty in London available via Shoot Factory. 2690 sq ft of open plan awesomeness. It’s no wonder the owner filled it with plants. Those windows and everything painted white makes for such a bright space. LOVE!
If you like your warehouse conversion more traditional, all industrial features,beams and brick then this one is for you. I’m real estate scrolling in Leichhardt just one suburb over from our last house. Love the central atrium with its outdoor shower (or is that just a piece of art?), the bathtub and all that glass. The architect is Petar Danicic. So having seen the two different warehouses which one is your favourite. Link here while it lasts.
I’m stalking a building in Sydney’s Darlinghurst that from the street you would not particularly notice but inside it has been converted into three residences that celebrate its industrial beginnings. Upstairs a four bedroom home with stylish eat in kitchen and courtyard garden. Downstairs two studio apartments that mean if I bought the place you could all take turns coming to stay and we can congregate around that table. Only problem is I would need around $4,700,000. Oh well that’s what real estate stalking is for. Dreaming. Link here while it lasts.
