A home renovation is about updating and upgrading your living space and giving a second chance for something that worth it. In some renovation projects, homeowners and contractors should collaborate to make the best decision for what should be retained or demolished.
This interesting project in Brooklyn carried by SABO project is an apartment renovation in an ex-factory structure that seems abandoned and poorly maintained. The Doehler is the name given to this awesome renovation that can magically turn up an old structure into a functional and cozy dwelling.
The Married of Industrial and Artsy Home Style
The industrial home was before a solution in converting old factory buildings into a dwelling in many big cities that has left no more space for new housing structures. Instead of demolishing them, the creative hands turned the space into a functional and livable dwelling for many people that needed home in the area.
Taking site in a big city of New York, Doehler renovation project was a project to update an ex-factory space into a dwelling that has function and value at the same time.
The result is wonderful as it tried to expose the industrial element and married it with modern craftsmanship that showcased simple and straightforward arrangements. Artistic accents are in many places inside the home but they that still put in a balance. That was to keep a harmonious visual look that enlivens the industrial and modern display.
The renovation seems to make everything on a budget as they did not overdo the interior area. The new partitions were made to give a fully functioning home but all of them were made with a modern perspective that created an interesting character.
Large Spatial Perspective and Geometric Accents
As an old factory building, the apartment has a higher space height compared with other conventional dwellings. With 12 feet height in all areas of the space, there is an advantageous condition to redo the interior and add a larger visual perspective to the home.
With 1,333 sf area, the apartment is not large enough since it was configured with two bedrooms. Therefore, interior partition walls were made as effective as possible to spare more social room in this industrial apartment.
The interesting focal point in this apartment is the random wood block storage which creates such a geometric display to unmute the atmosphere. It was mounted on the wall as smart partition ideas as it also works as working table and also kitchen pantry.
The wooden shelf is also used as a mezzanine stair that built above the bedroom closet. The configuration was smart and efficient to give an extra function that does not sacrifice another space.
While there are only white and grey layers in the main living area and kitchen, the beautiful geometric decoration was applied in the bathroom in a simple shade of blue.
The color range is modest but the smart arrangement can bring on the lively vibe inside the bathroom. It also gives a balancing concept to counter the existing large structure column in this space.
