An artist’s Loft

Interior design for a loft apartment: Danish artist Bjørn Agertved has transformed his apartment, a top floor of 169 square meters with high ceilings over 5 meters.

The building dated 1877 is located in one of the nicest areas of Christianshavn in Copenhagen. It is part of a Panterens Bastion complex, which formerly hosted army school buildings, today converted into housing.

From the apartment you can enjoy a phenomenal view of the ramparts and Christiania on the one hand, and Islands Brygge on the other. Infact, it has two balconies facing the opposite side.

The beautiful beams and the wooden roof structure have been highlighted by painting in white the ceilings.

The floors are wood throughout the house except in the bathrooms. In the living area, to create contrast and give character, the fireplace niche and some walls have been painted in petrol green as continuing the external wall covering in the terrace. The wall behind the bed is painted in a beautiful dark blue, while eggplant matched with a gray stone tiles has been the choice in the bathroom.

I like it because the colors are well balanced. The petrol green walls create a connection between interior and exterior. The white ceilings illuminate the space and emphasize the roof structure. I like the choice of furnishings,  mixing modern classics with custom pieces: like the Barcelona Chair in cognac-colored leather (I especially love it) and the dining table made in wood and carrara marble.

    I really like the pattern of the shelves in the kitchen. Cool twist on the cabinet and far more open.

    • True. The geometric design of the shelves, made of modular pieces, it’s simple and versatile. It allows to customize the wall. Plus it makes a cool contrast with the kitchen cabinets.
