Wow, they really were lucky! A beautiful teak floor to refurbish and that steel beam... together with the bricks, really nice period features, I'm glad they kept them, it gives the place the soul that old buildings have and new building cruelly lack. Love the living room and bedroom, but not the kitchen. I mean it's functional and lets in the light, it's just the white+grey combined with very sleek and modern design that I don't like (personal taste only). I would have chosen a more industrial style for the kitchen, fits better with such a 19th century brick building. But as long as they're happy with their modern kitchen, it's a very successful renovation.

Why not use those great steel beams? Just weld some steel shelves into the H and you have a narrow bookcase! USE those industrial elements!
