Wood brick and concrete are celebrated inside Plantain Place – a live/work space near Borough Market in London designed by award-winning architects Mary Duggan and Joe Morris.
The London property is an 1880s warehouse conversion that contains three spaces: a first floor live/work space (£1.025m); a second-floor apartment (II £925,000); and a third space (III priced at £1m). All three are available as a single purchase, with details on enquiry via The Modern House.
Duggan Morris designed the interiors for designer and artist Jonathan Ellery, who has lived and worked in the building since 2007, opting for a compartmentalised approach to the space. His studio Browns currently occupies the ground floor, with Ellery’s art studio above and living spaces on the first floor.
The practice took a ‘less is more’ approach to humanising the industrial interiors, leaving brickwork exposed and installing polished concrete floors and large glass panes.
A sunny courtyard is the focal point for the Bermondsey property, planted with lush greenery and slate-coloured brickwork that’s visible through tall windows, with roof lights above.
