Vintage furnishings in a Budapest loft

Ruined tower of a former four-storey weapons factory turns into workshop-house inspired by classic American lofts

The tower of an abandoned weapon factory from the 1910s gives life to a modern design loft with vintage furnishings. Located in Budapest industrial area, Loft 19 is an eclectic workshop-house by architect-designer Attila F. Kovács and his wife, art director and stylist Zsuzsa Megyesi.

The two designers, owners of both A+Z Design Studio and Loft 19, which is their current home, have shaped a multifunctional space reminiscent of a sci-fi movie set suspended amidst different eras and styles - a welcoming 600 sq. m, four-storeys open space loft in the industrial area of Hungary’s capital city (read also → Loft moderni, 5 case studio open space da Londra a Milano).

“An island in the middle of an abandoned city made of iron and concrete, wide, silent spaces” explain the loft’s owners “a comfortable creative haven with special aesthetics.”

The factory tower was a complete shambles, but after an almost three-years renovation it has turned into a perfect custom-made house for the couple. Kovács and Megyesi have selected vintage industrial furnishings mixed with touches of contemporary design. Old reclaimed iron doors, beams converted into shelves recalling the building’s industrial past, exclusive vintage furniture patiently recovered in flea markets, auctions and antiques shops harmoniously blend with unique pieces made by the owners themselves: the perfect formula to make every nook a small mysterious world unto itself.

Under the first storey 5 meters high ceilings are located a showroom as well as Attila e Zsuzsa’s studios, while the upper storey hosts the bedrooms, enclosed by ample walk-in closets. On the third floor are set the living area, the dining room and an open-plan kitchen, all of them enhanced by some of the two stylists’ favorite pieces. The fourth storey features what can be regarded as the ultimate artist touch to this beautiful renovation: an old concrete fire water tank converted into a relaxing swimming pool with its own artificial current.
