How big is Jason's loft:
His loft is 87 square meters.
It is a large room with an open kitchen located at the entrance.
Because the original elevator shafts are now used to house the bathroom and toillet, creates a sort of corridor with wardrobes.
It also creates a separate room where the living room or bedroom can be realized.
Jason currently lives on one floor and realized his bedroom behind the elevator shafts.
In what kind of building is his loft:
Strijp S is a former industrial area of approximately 27 hectares in the Eindhoven Strijp that belonged to NV Philips . The historic and official spelling is Strijp S , without a hyphen . Today, we see mostly in commercial publications , also the spelling Strijp - S , with dash .
The name Strijp - S comes from the names Philips gave to the industrial parks .
Strijp -S was the first park , then came Strijp - T and third followed Strijp - R .
A fourth industrial park would Strijp –I, named as the next letter in the name Strijp .
Commonly known as the Forbidden City was an area that was surrounded by the Eindhoven building , but that was not accessible. Still, many people went in and out, day after day, because the industrialland contained immense factories that gave many thousands of people work. The oldest building that was founded on the site was the Philips Research Laboratories . Curentley ther is a filmhouse, restaurant en theater based in this beautiful building. '>http://www.natlab.nl'>
This dates from 1922. Very impressive was the so-called High Ridge (this is the building were I live now. I live in the last building of the three, now called Anton), a consecutive series of three large industrial buildings , which were built . Respectively in 1927 , 1929 and 1930 Here were radios and even television sets assembled after the Second World War .
1929 tribal Ketelhuis ( There is a restaurant and koffiehouse based now) '>http://www.ketelhuis.com'>
and Engineering, for the generation of compressed air and electricity. Across the High Ridge originally a series of factory -like buildings stood where gas and steam for use in the factories was raised .
The Bell Building 1928 contained ( now baseted klokgebouw, a building were concerts and party’s take place) '>http://www.klokgebouw.nl'>
Philitefabriek . Here Bakelite was produced . It is so named for the huge bells. Actually served as a water tower and the bells masked the basin . Striking the building was also the Philips logo . All this was to be admired. From approaching trains The buildings of the period, 1927-1930 , his monument.
The Veemgebouw ( The vieuw from my bedroom windows is this building. They are curentley working in this building, so at the end of this year basted in this building a supermarkt, bakery and other healthy foodstores).
was built in 1942 . This striking and large building was a warehouse for radio and later television sets and other Philips products . Also Veemgebouw 's monument. Even later date, the Glass Building , that was completed in 1948 .
Besides these monumental buildings , which will be saved as an industrial monument , there are numerous other buildings and buildings erected on the site over the years . These were not only built by Philips , but in later years by other companies , partly privatized companies Philips , as Matino and Bosch . Matino was the continuation of Philips Advanced Metal Components , but the company went bankrupt in 2007 .
The site was bombed twice during World War II. On December 6, 1942 , the British Royal Air Force conducted a precision bombing raid on the complex , because radio and radar units were produced . These images are preserved from the bombers . On September 19, 1944 , there were German bombing Eindhoven was released a day before.
In 1982, the Forbidden City was equally open to the public : when pulled Marathon Eindhoven , which was organized on the occasion of the 750th anniversary of Eindhoven , along Torenallee ( I live at the Torenallee) over the complex .
In 2000, the first discussions were held on the evolution of Strijp - S , after Philips would be left.
In 2002 a book was released about the complex , entitled Complex Strijp S/T/R- impressions of an industrial landscape in Eindhoven . It was given a current picture on the surprising beauty of Philips complexes , whose leadership streets have formed a very special aspect .
In 2004 the site was for a symbolic amount of hand made to the business park Strijp Management BV and Philips temporarily leased back the buildings still used . Presently disappeared for the major part of Philips well out of the buildings. Exception is building SFH where Philips is still represented . The intention was to develop into a residential and a design and entertainment center the terrain.
In 2006 a start was made with the demolition of some buildings. New business was raised , which focuses on design - related activities . There are also many activities annually under Dutch Design Week .
The plans include the construction of a promenade with six rows gegaffelde plane . Also , all kinds of construction activities, including a high-rise project, 100 m altitude . The idea is that there are many activities come at Strijp - S that have to do with creativity and design. Also Strijp - S is a testing ground for LED lighting , which the band with the Philips past continues . Surprisingly
In 2008, the site also functioned as the main location for the light festival GLOW Eindhoven .
The first new development with residential function at Strijp -S is the SAS - 3 project . This project involves the construction of 67 houses ( 20 town houses and 47 apartments ) and 131 apartments for rent . The houses have been completed in 2012.
The buildings SAN and SBP ( now renamed GERARD and ANTON , as a tribute to two important members of the Philips family ) are substantially rebuilt since 2011 , while maintaining the industrial character . There is room for example restaurants, a museum , a gallery or specialty shops that have something to do with culture or design to make . On the ground floor On the first floor of the buildings are partially rental lofts and other functions such as workshops , offices and possibly short-stay facilities . The second to the sixth floor are fully converted into rental lofts . The lofts will be completed in early 2013 . Roof gardens . Come on the roofs of both buildings The street where the buildings are now called Torenallee .
It is also grown Veemgebouw from 2013 . On the ground floor is a food court . The floors above are converted into parking . Four additional floors come at the present building with 38 apartments and a shared courtyard , and on top is an owner-occupied four floors. This is the only apartment for rent in the triangle of Strijp - S , which is formed by Torenallee , Philitelaan ( which is the Clock Building ) and Beech Avenue . The intention is that this is all done in 2014 .
In December 2013 the book was published " The Architecture of Philips in Eindhoven - Demolition Renovation Transformation" . In this book , a catalog of all buildings Philips in Eindhoven , it became clear how it has dealt with the industrial heritage of Philips many buildings have been demolished , but a large number of buildings were reused .

How long does he live here:
Jason moved here at the first of June 2013.
Why does he like to live in a loft:
Because of the open space and the huge windows/view!
He love's the high ceilings and the industrial look. The monumental ditails, the concrete floor, the big kitchen and also this area is so inspiring.
There is a roofpark from about 300 meters. When the weather is good, almost every weekeind there is a party on the roof. People take their own drinks, bites and good vibes with them.
Can Jason imagine to live in another flat than a loft:
No! For him a loft is not a flat! Even maybe when it is a bit : )
His future plans are to build my own little world of wonders.
Living in his city loft, working for Craft industry, photographing and spending time with friends.
How long did Jason need for the renovation:
Two weeks. At the same time of his move in here, he was working downstairs at his store - Craft industrie-. This was a crazy time for Jason.
Friends helpt a lot. The first weekeind we were scouring and painting the walls with six girs and the rest of the renavation two of my dearest friends helpt me and I did some major project by meself. Like sanding the floor.
What did he renovate and why:
Not that much really. Take one look at the pictures and you know just way : )
Look at that walls! They are so amazing.
There was some work of course, but the biggest project is still ahead. And that is the realization of a second etage!
And also there will be a pouring concrete countertop in the soon future.
And maybe a bath.
What would he renovate different if he would do it agian:
Can you believe it… Absoluly nothing.
Why did he included raw walls and white wall colors:
Because he wanted to capiture the monumental and industrial factory life that was in this building before it became a living area. The white makes it clean en creates this amazing feel of space and shows how high the ceilings are.
Jason love's non-colors. White, black, grey and wood. It is all he need to make him feel at home.
His life is chaotic as it is allready. When he is at home he need's to feel calm, at peace.
It is his most favourite place on earth. Were he can think, be creative, be himself and were he lays his head to rest.
