The Industrial Revolution turned London into one of the most important cities on the planet. Two centuries later, past and future are merging in building designs that are as revolutionary as they are industrial. In terms of both, this secluded Warley Close warehouse conversion is one of the most creative yet.
Customized for a pair of artists and designed to maximize natural lighting, this 2,200 square foot home has all the details you’d expect from a warehouse, from exposed brick walls and steel beams to corrugated shutter doors and polished concrete floors. But look closely, and you’ll notice exquisite and sophisticated details like a freestanding tub in the bathroom, reclaimed iroko worktop in the spacious kitchen, and sweeping skylights over the mezzanine bedroom. Open floor plans don’t get much more open than this, and the space extends onto a sunny terrace too. Bi-fold doors also sweep across the main floor to divide it in half when the mood strikes.
