What’s the story, morning glory?
Antwerp Loft is very much run as a family. Out of a sheer passion for design, architecture and production that’s how things really got started. That love for getting things done led to something new. Something we lost our hearts and minds to.
Over the years the ‘Groen Kwartier’-site had always been in the back of our minds. It was just such a beautiful neighborhood with awesome old buildings. Diamonds in the rough. At some point we were able to acquire a first loft, and then another… until we ended up with 4 beautiful spaces that were just so inspiring to renovate. The beautiful glass covered patio -at the heart of our investment- just left us in awe.
We remember clearly when we sent out our first mails and inquiries to get rather ‘big’ brands and design-names aboard. We literally couldn’t believe it when Made.com jumped the wagon. They were the first to invest their time, energy and awesome products into the project. And then Duravit followed, and then Hansgrohe and Sikkens… And a few years later Sonos. This was just too good to be true. We were definitely onto something. Ever since we have been bringing catchy and interesting rooms and designs to the likes of event designers, marketeers, brands and producers.
From full-blown tv-shows (De Leugendetector for VIER, Blind Getrouwd for VTM) to tv-commercials (Danio) to webcontent to photography to events… Just too many to mention.
Antwerp Loft is here, and it’s here to stay. Peace!
