Originally built as a hotel circa 1860, the building features a stately staircase leading up to a loft-style attic apartment with soaring timber trusses.
This landmarked 19th-century building in Antwerp, Belgium, was originally designed as a hotel by famed local architect J.A. Hompus. The 7,000-square-foot space most recently housed a satirical Flemish theater company, De Zwarte Komedie, and today it contains a series of contemporary flats spread out across four floors.
The comedy theater shut down in 2015, at which point the building was renovated from top to bottom and four separate flats were created on the upper levels. Full-floor apartments occupy the first and second levels, while the timber-framed attic was divided into a pair of handsome loft-style units. The ground level is arranged as a small work studio and multipurpose space. Keep scrolling to see images of the interior, which is replete with intricate molding and original features.
