We’ve posted before on the work of Belgian architect Bruno Erpicum (see Architect Visit: Bruno Erpicum & Partners); we also like this warehouse conversion in Dusseldorf that Erpicum designed for an art-collecting couple. Carved from an old factory in the city center (one of the few that avoided damage during the bombings of World War II), “the space highlights the existing brickwork, celebrating the wear inflicted over time.” To see more of the firm’s work, go to Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners.
