Judith and Robert live together, work side-by-side and think big together. While walking by the river Oise nine years ago, they came across an abandoned factory.

After years living in one tiny room and learning things they never knew about themselves and each other, they have turned this mass of steel, concrete and glass into a big, bright home full of endless possibilities and bold primary colours. From the building itself to the tiniest utensil, vase or toy car, this couple celebrates the beauty of everyday objects. It has taken seven years of hard work for Judith and Robert to tame the unruly space, but they’ve finally made it into a home. Says Judith,
