A conversion of a Victorian gin distillery into a family home. As the distillery is surrounded by other buildings, the design challenge was to bring in lots of natural light while maintaining privacy.

Victorian Gin Distillery Converted Into a Bright, Modern Family Home

Our choice of materials was informed by simplicity and durability. The ground-floor living spaces are characterised by exposed steelwork with timber and polished concrete surfaces. Large Crittall windows retain and emphasise the rhythm of the building’s original apertures.

A black steel staircase at the back of the home emerges into a sun-filled landing off which sit two modern cabin-style bedrooms and a bathroom with Scandinavian redwood ceilings. The enclosed terrace connects to the bedrooms and allows for a tranquil outdoor escape from the bustle of surrounding Whitechapel. Throughout the interior, carefully placed apertures allow patterns of light to drift across the surfaces as the day progresses.
