The shell of this warehouse loft in King's Cross, London, has been stripped back leaving a robust space with windows looking out over railway land. A decision was taken early on to retain as much of this open feel as possible but to leaven this nostalgic space with colour and interest by creating a set of new objects placed within the space, creating views through and beyond. The client, an artist, and architect worked in close collaboration on the brief: to create a new home with an emphasis on entertaining and living spaces but with separate areas for sleeping, working and entrance. These places are made as 'corners' between new and existing planes, emphasised by the placing of walls, lowered ceilings and small changes in floor level. The contractor was Haydon and Hagan Construction and the contract sum was £79,000.
