Nearly 20 years ago, in the Roquette district of Paris, a historic factory dating back to the early 1900s was reimagined as a series of sprawling, airy abodes—one of which was recently put up for sale. Spanning across three floors, the 2,400-square-foot penthouse comprises lofty spaces that pay homage to the building’s industrial past.
The entrance to the apartment opens to the metal-framed living area. Soaring ceilings and expansive skylights unite to create a light-filled atrium, all while enhancing the room’s grand sense of space. Wooden partitions and polished concrete floors add to the neutral material palette. On the same level is a fully fitted kitchen, dining room, and library.
A floating staircase leads to the private wing of the home, where both of the two bedrooms are located, along with a bathroom and storage area. Another stairway connects to the loft’s basement, a flexible space that is large enough to easily accommodate an art studio, home office, or gym.
