LOFT 44 IN THE FAHLE HOUSE

A luxurious loft at the renovated paper factory


Location:
Tallinn, Estonia
Client: Koger & Partners
Commission: 2006
Completed: 2008
Size: 250 m2


One of the largest apartments in the Fahle house is located in the former paper drying plant of the paper factory. The original space, which is higher than seven metres, has been divided into two floors. The windows on the end wall of the building deliver light through the entire apartment and the bathroom has a panoramic view of Tallinn’s Old Town. Part of the spacious living room runs through two floors emphasizing the scale of the windows in this historic factory, which tower from floor to ceiling and create the feeling of a Manhattan loft. Loose plaster has been forcefully yet sensitively removed from the walls displaying massive limestone blocks. The interior of the apartment combines the robust factory with its characteristic powerful bolted iron beams and modern minimalist design with clinical stainless steel kitchen surfaces and bright-coloured soft furnishings. There are two bedrooms with a separate bathroom and library corner on the upper floor of the apartment.
