ROH Architects transformed this former armaments factory in London’s Queen Park into a spectacular loft-like home with beamed ceilings and skylit spaces.
Set in the heart of Queen’s Park, the four-bedroom Salusbury Road maisonette is available through Domus Nova as a long let, priced at $2,500 p/w. From the curb, there’s little to suggest at the surprise awaiting inside, but step through double doors, and you’re immediately into a soaring vaulted living room crossed by trusses and skylights, with a mezzanine overhead.
A U-shaped stainless steel kitchen with a marble breakfast bar and integrated appliances adjoins the main living space for entertaining, and the cabinetry features a ‘handless’ design that maintains sightlines.
Spaces across the London rental are painted in a monochrome palette, with colour coming from soft furnishings, art and books. This all-white look continues into the bedroom, where the primary suite has a Crittal-glass enclosed en-suite with a freestanding tub, double vanity and rainfall shower.
There are three more guest bedrooms – two of which have skylights overhead, while the mezzanine is presently used as a home office with wall-to-wall storage. If your WFH days are behind you, it could also be used as a TV area or reception room.
And there’s one more surprise in store: a second set of stairs leads up and out to the peaceful rooftop terrace, where you can enjoy views across Queen’s Park and London beyond from integrated seating.
