Emil Eve Architects has paired brick walls and contemporary details in an industrial loft, which it created inside a Victorian warehouse building in Shoreditch, London.
The apartment is one of nine created by the Hackney-based studio within a former warehouse complex in Shoreditch.
Inside the apartment, a large open-plan lounge and dining area have been created alongside a mezzanine library and floor-to-ceiling oak bookshelves.
The building’s brickwork, timbers and columns have been exposed and restored throughout to preserve the industrial aesthetic. But contemporary details have also been added in the form of new metal finishes, tiling and built-in timber furniture and fittings.
The architects wanted to ensure that the loft reflected the building’s industrial character, and they selected a neutral palette of metalwork, tiles and pale timber to complete the renovation.
“Original features such as glazed brickwork, exposed timber structures and historic quirks have been retained and restored,” said studio founders Emma and Ross Perkin. “Contemporary detailing compliments these elements of the building’s industrial past to create warm and welcoming interiors with a palette of rich textures and materials,” they added.
