The Light Works: Glas Architects

Two musicians approached Glas Architects with a brief to transform a former lightbulb factory into a three-storey live/work residence

Glas inserted a dense vertical core into the narrow shell, allowing the space of the existing warehouse to remain mostly untouched. The core brings three separate stairs into a single circulation tower. Lighting was a key element of the design, concealed under handrails, around corners and hidden in recesses. Sustainable natural materials were used, such as FSC-approved American walnut flooring and sheep’s wool insulation.

  • Project: Unit 2, The Light Works, London
    Architect: Glas Architects
    Cost: £135,000
