Water Cleaning Station Converted Into Striking Modern Mansion

Proving that industrial design elements can successfully be integrated in home design, this striking loft-like residence is the result of a water cleaning station conversion. The 5,400 square foot 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom loft belongs to former Belgian army pilot Philippe Tondeur and is located in Villefranche sur Mer on the French Riviera. The massive transformation of the water station took almost 15 years to complete and its modern design was envisioned with the help of Belgian interior designer Bernadette Jacques.

Each of the interiors is defined by elegance and space, making a walk through the residence resemble a gallery tour. The preserved industrial elements (giant pipes, exposed beams and various machines) seem like precious artifacts in an exhibition space. The living room is by far the most spectacular interior of the property with its comfortable set of sofas surrounded by giant windows and preserved parts of the former water cleaning station.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
