Warehouse, wharves, factories, tanners, hospital and schools all over London have been converted to residential use. Initially considered by many to be a passing fad, living in a former manufacturing or traditional housing.
Owner appreciate single-level living and the fact that they have a blank space on which to imprint their own style. In this case the term ‘loft-living’ is not used, as the owners clearly wanted to divide up the substantial space – realizing that a true open plan does not suit most people – but in a totally flexible way.
They created two bedrooms by installing full-height, bi-fold sliding doors that virtually disappear when an open-plan layout is required. The second bedroom double as an office, enclosed only when guest are staying.
To maximize daylight the whole living area is open to a row of tall windows running the length of the apartment. Pure-white poured-resin floors are light, warm and practical, as is the white high-gloss finish on the kitchen units. Pure simplicity, pure pleasure.
