Loop by Loop Private Apartment Building

Frank la Rivière

Architecture, Building and Structure Design Loop by Loop Private Apartment Building by Frank la Rivière An abandoned concrete building shell, acquired with the intention to create a large apartment for private habitation. The developed design strategy makes use of the unfinished state and the exposed concrete is regarded as a neutral backdrop against which the spaces for habitation are designed. Therefore, finishes contrast with and wrap the concrete only there where needed. Concrete was erased to allow for loop-like structures to be inserted. On these loops life takes centre stage. Executed like freestanding pieces of furniture, each is finished in a different material.
