This Cricklewood property was used by Handley Page to manufacture aircraft for the British military. Architects Caireen O’Hagan and Corrine Quinn transformed it into a soaring live/work complex in 2018, set around a landscaped internal courtyard crowned by trusses and a verdant living wall.
Wotton Works is located off a quiet residential road in North London, and the interwar building has been refashioned by O’Hagan and Quinn (formerly of Ilse Crawford Studio) into three commercial spaces and a five-bedroom apartment. The complex is listed for £6.5m via The Modern House.
Rolled steel joists, critical windows, exposed brick, raw concrete and oak flooring all nod to the building’s past across the interior. Its first floor is organised as open office space and a studio while living accommodation – an intriguing mix of large reception rooms and cosy studies – is on the upper two levels. In total, there is 12,730 sq ft of floor space across the London property, including the flexible, triple-height atrium, which is brimming with plantlife and crowned by skylights. This spectacular space is often used for photoshoots and events.
