Industrial warehouse converted into luxury London apartments
London and Vienna-based international architectural practice, SIRS, has designed the East London Penthouse project. Completed in 2013, the former industrial warehouse has been converted into open-plan luxury apartments in east London, England.
The building, which was originally converted into flats in the 1980s, was renovated by the architects by converting the top two floors into two contemporary penthouse apartments for private clients.
Manuel Irsara, architect, said to Dezeen in an interview: “The client was looking for a flexible and open-plan main living space in combination with a series of compact bedrooms that reflect contemporary living standards.”
According to the architects: “Interior design brief was to convert and restore two floors of a sought-after former Victorian warehouse building within conservation area into separate large luxury penthouses.
“Showpiece of each 252 m2 (2,713 ft2) large apartment is a spectacular living room with open-plan layout and large sash-windows providing light and airy rooms. Original cast iron features were retained and restored while industrial finishes were chosen to complement the former industrial character.
“Each luxury apartment contains three bedrooms with separate en-suites, two independent lobbied entrances, Guest-WC, plant and utility rooms. The open-plan layout is designed generically allowing flexible occupant usage with variable allocation of different living, dining and working islands.”
