Clapton Warehouse

An existing warehouse conversion required a refurbishment. A series of disconnected air less spaces has been transformed into a stylish live/work space. A new mezzanine floor was added with a steel balustrade and folded steel staircase. We designed and the client cast their own concrete kitchen. New crittal style windows were added, over the double height space to add drama to the internal elevations, and to let light flow through the spaces whilst retaining privacy. The elegant palette of finishes was kept simpleĀ and references the industrial nature of the existing building.
