At just 757 sq ft, this East London loft uses light and space-saving tricks to maximise its compact floor plan, while celebrating its industrial heritage.
The live/work studio is located inside Five King Edward’s Road, a garment factory from the 1920s which has been converted into 89 apartments. This loft is tucked in a quiet, south-facing corner of the building, meaning it benefits from great light – enjoyed through dual-aspect, ceiling height steel-framed windows.
Its industrial volume has also been maximised, with a mezzanine level inserted above the kitchen to create a bedroom.
The bolt-hole shows how to wring out every last inch of space via clever built-in storage and a space-saving spiral staircase, and all-white kitchen cabinetry that amplifies light.
The Modern House is listing the East London loft for sale at £585,000 leasehold. Five King Edward’s Road is walking distance from London Fields and Victoria Park and is a stone’s throw from the ever-popular Mare Street.
