Loft Laura



LAUM – PAUM did the complete design and renovation of the former laundry and boiler house of the sanatorium Joseph Lemaire, originally designed by Maxime Brunfaut in 1937. Laura Coninx too off with a jump start doing this beautiful project.


Laura Coninx isn't greedy on her modernist house; apart from her own family habitat she designed two upstairs apartments to rent out. I was just lucky that one was in between renters, so I had a peek inside... 


When you walk in you are immediately overwhelmed by pure simplicity in
the well-thought-out design. The daylight floods into the living space that has an industrial feel to it. The high ceilings, white walls and the perfect finishing accentuate this house with its modernist structure.

 The house is build on a hillside surrounded by trees, so one of the loft spaces looks out on an open square while the other one
has a river view.
