Black concrete and steel chime inside this London warehouse conversion

Zuber Dobson Architects sets a high bar for loft living at this Victorian warehouse conversion in east London which uses a rich material palette of exposed brick and timber beams contrasted by sleek black concrete.

For sale via The Modern House for £1.2m, the Great Eastern Street loft is arranged across the third and fourth floor of the building, and its rooftop, with layers peeled back to reveal the original bones of the warehouse.

Of particular note is the striking kitchen, equipped with perforated metal units and wooden worktops, and a black concrete sink – the same concrete used for floors throughout the London loft.

ZDA has inserted a dramatic ‘folded’ steel staircase to the mezzanine above the living room, currently used as a playroom and enclosed by netting. Keep heading up to access the freshly created private roof terrace, with its deck area and children’s sandpit.

Storage has been built into the eaves of the building’s mono-pitched roof, including in the two large bedrooms, maximising vertical space. A third bedroom can be accessed via steel-framed windows, which have been used internally to maximise light flow while zoning off sections of the floor plan.
