The project realized by Chris Dyson Architects has involved the transformation of a Shoreditch warehouse into a family residence. Initially dim, the warehouse had to receive some modifications to ensure the presence of natural light into the household. This Shoreditch Warehouse Conversion included demolishing a shed to connect the residence to the property’s backyard, thus ensuring lighting for the bathroom and also for the bedroom. The windows for the living space were replaced, opting for a larger, factory-styled format.

To have the light reach into the study-reserved space on the ground floor, an existing roof-light on the lantern was replaced, and the existing lantern was replaced with a walk-on glass roof-light, fitted flush to adjacent finishes. The privacy and intimacy were assured by mounting timber panels which offer noise and “prying-eyes” protection from the neighboring properties. The interior is represented by a blend of modern and antique accessories, which connect the historical-enriched patrimony of the building to modern times. Plenty structural elements and original accessories were kept and restored: floors, brick walls, beams and wooden ladders. Enjoy the photo!

Phoenix Retreat: A House Rises from the Ashes

On a site with challenging accessibility, no electricity, no water and no cellular service, the Phoenix retreat is conceived as a folly in the landscape; a viewing platform, a fire lookout, a shady spot for a picnic, a remote crash pad for limited stays, a place to become detached, a place to commune with the landscape, a place for contemplation.
