Warm Loft Apartment in Antwerp by Dennis T’Jampens Architectural Projects

This loft apartment, by Dennis T’Jampens, started life as part of an old factory — as so many do — and, being a compact 200 square meters, required a streamlined approach. This, T’Jampens has done, with style that’s clear, direct, and modern; warm color tones, in contrast with white walls, make the elements of this loft stand out as if pieces of residential art. Grouped around a central cube-like coffee table, the soothing neutral-toned couches in the living room provide comfortable seating, facing a low-profile fireplace installed in the dividing wall — an additional touch to help you unwind from the “grind.” For efficient food preparation, the galley kitchen features cleverly situated cabinet space, stainless steel appliances, and a convenient center island with a sink, mere steps away from a table and chairs that do double-duty as both a dining and work area.

In the bathroom, soothing gray and white mosaic tiles stretch around the wall surrounding a deep, spacious, soaking tub; pristine white cabinets take care of storage for toiletries and towels. Recessed track lighting illuminates the living areas — that, and the natural light from tall windows that give a view of the city beyond. In a stroke of cutting-edge modernity, the house is fully automated for easy maintenance and security. And there’s a bonus: the loft’s staircase opens onto a rooftop garden with as much square footage as the apartment itself, affording a magnificent view of the Antwerp skyline. Taken in total, the “Y.T.” apartment provides a breath of fresh air — in both the artistic and the literal sense; with its outdoor option, this apartment brings “lofty” to a whole new level.
