Warehouse Apartment in London by Paper House Project

This former garment factory in Bethnal Green has been recently converted by architecture studio paper House Project into a modern apartment for a young couple. 

James Davies, founder of Paper House Project,  was tasked with adding an extra bedroom to the former garment warehouse, which was converted into an open-plan live-work space almost a decade ago.

By opening up the enclosed stairwell and incorporating the vertical circulation into the central atrium, the architects were able to add space, light and volume to the main living areas. Glazing is used throughout to bring natural light deeper into the floor plan, with obscured glass panels creating privacy for the fully refurbished bathrooms and bedrooms. The glazed atrium visually connects both floors whilst separating public and private spaces.

The industrial aesthetic of the original building has been preserved with a bespoke stainless steel kitchen, open metal staircase and exposed steel columns, complimented by the new metal-framed atrium glazing, and poured concrete resin floor.
