The space is predominantly open plan, sub-divided only by two separate shuttered-concrete stacks that form the bathroom and dressing area. The elegant cantilevered stainless-steel kitchen is the only other fixed structure.

The living area is demarcated by a rectangular birch-ply panelled floor with a concrete-screed surround. A succession of concrete pillars line up along the centre of the room, providing natural breaks in the space. The exposed brick walls and high concrete ceilings reflect the building’s industrial past.

There are large windows at each end of the room that allow east and west light to infiltrate the space, whilst warm-toned vertical strip lighting illuminates the space at night. A double door opens to a Juliet balcony that has leafy views over the quiet street behind the building. All the windows are equipped with opaque roller blinds that can be used to diffuse the sunlight.
