London’s Shoreditch is famed for its warehouse conversions, but this light-filled penthouse raises the bar.
Taking up the fourth and fifth floors of a Victorian ironworks building, the loft is a flexible live/work space. Currently three bedrooms peel off the lower level living room, each of which has Gothic windows, exposed brickwork and hardwood floors.
A double-width industrial staircase leads to the London loft’s light-filled upper floor, capped by a glass vaulted ceiling. Designed with entertaining in mind, the space has bi-folding doors that open the large dining room up to the roof terrace, complete with hot tub, outdoors shower, and views towards St Leonard’s Church.
Also on this level is a second reception room filled with oversized sofas, and the kitchen – decked in stainless steel appliances, and a huge breakfast island.
