This factory from 1900 in the Dutch town of Gilze was a true ruin. You couldn’t stand up straight, the soil was contaminated and the building was considered unsafe. But Wesly and Astrid knew immediately that they wanted to buy the former factory and how they wanted to renovate it. During the renovations they found the beams that they kept in view and removed all the inner walls so you can see trough the entire home, no matter where you are. They put in wonderful black steeled-framed windows (just as in this Paris Loft) to give the space and industrial feeling. I think they did an amazing job with this former factory!
