Transformation of a farm into housing


This former 18th century farmhouse has been renovated into four apartments and triplexes. It is located in Longsdorf, a small village in the municipality of Tandel in the north of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.


The challenge was to safeguard the heritage elements that are still present, integrate the parts that have been transformed over time and enhance the whole by adding contemporary elements.

Preservation of heritage

The vaults have been preserved in the entrance hall and in the bathroom of the apartment on the ground floor, giving the place a great charm. The tiles in the entrance hall have remained as they were, reminiscent of the farm's history. A nod to history was made, as the parquet floor, which is 100 years old and has been transformed into decorative woodwork. The traditional skylights are reinterpreted as watchtowers.
