An old warehouse, exuding character,
in the midst of a little historic town in Brittany
Saint-Brieuc, COTES-D'ARMOR brittany 22000 FR

Location

This disused building is set in the north of Brittany, in the midst of a quiet district in a character town. A TGV train station is within easy walking distance.

Description

This old building was a wholesaler’s warehouse at the beginning of the 20th century. Eye-catching, it spans three levels, topped with a 3-sloped, slate roof. The walls are constructed from granite quarry blocks with dressed stone used for the quoins and the surrounds framing the openings.

The warehouse

The layout is rectangular. The facade features a tall, wide central door, flanked by two windows, on the ground floor. On the first floor, an opening, topped with an old hoist, demonstrates the need at the time to lift large heavy goods directly up from the outside.


Ground floor
Although the outside appears to indicate that the building spans but a single storey under the rafters, this is not the case. Just a few metres from the entrance, a half-floor on a lower level can be reached via a few steps, likewise for a half-floor on a higher level. An office, just inside the entrance to the warehouse, is enhanced with an old fireplace, letting visitors imagine the managers of these premises, installed in the warm, watching over the comings and goings. Still on the right-hand side, above the office, a wooden stairway goes up to the first floor. At the end of the lower half-floor, a door opens on to a porch and a little garden. The latter, completely unoverlooked, is laid to grass and wooded.
First floor
The continuous floor surface area is free of any partition walls. The cathedral ceiling makes it possible to appreciate the authentic, period, wooden roofing framework. Old doors set in one of the walls are walled up. They used to provide a link with the neighbouring warehouse, now part of a middle-class home. The flooring between the first and second floors is supported by period steel beams and columns.

Our opinion

Ideal for conversion into a spacious, open-plan flat or for use as an art gallery or exhibition hall, these unusual premises could accommodate numerous projects. Warehouses such as this one, ideal for conversion into novel living space, are very often located in industrial areas unsuitable for private housing or were destroyed prior to the construction of houses, leading to the creation of residential districts. In this case, the authenticity of the premises, set amidst the district’s middle-class homes, has been preserved.
