The interior architect Nicky Vanden Bossche recently rolled up her sleeves and got to work on an apartment shell in an old warehouse. Her aim was to give the new home an industrial character to suit the soul of the main building. She chose a Quick-Step wood-look laminate floor to give the space an extra feeling of warmth and cosiness.
“It is a compact living space, but the open design still makes it feel quite roomy and there are plenty of areas to enjoy some privacy”, explains Nicky Vanden Bossche. The flat will also serve as a showroom and calling card for her professional activities. “It was a balancing act between showing off what is possible on the one hand and creating somewhere nice to live and to fit the budget on the other.”
Access to light
The interior architect wanted to open up the space available as much as possible and give access to daylight in every room. For this reason it was essential to be able to look from one space into the next. The apartment’s open nature means that daylight can penetrate deep into the flat.
