Nifty Warehouse Conversion in London Wraps Modernity in Rich Heritage

Adaptive reuse of structures is a trend that is here to stay, and many homeowners across the world are quickly starting to understand the many benefits that it offers. This beautiful and innovative Shoreditch Warehouse conversion in London is another example of such creative reuse that not only reduces cost and wastage of materials, but pays a befitting tribute to the rich heritage of the structure and the neighborhood in which it sits. Turned into an elegant modern family home by Chris Dyson Architects, the revamped warehouse proudly displays its striking brick walls along with curated decor additions that reinforce the vintage setting.

Old Warehouse turned into a smart, modern home in London

A major part of the charming renovation involved the complete makeover of the rear of the warehouse, which saw the removal of an existing shed to clear out some space for a private courtyard. This space not only offers a small, quiet retreat for the residents but also enlivens the ground floor study by bringing in a flood of natural light. A walk-on roof light was used to get this task accomplished, while cleverly placed timber screens add to the privacy of the courtyard itself. Inside the home, large windows, exposed brick walls and steel framed doors constantly remind us of the structure’s past.
