Explore this vibrant London warehouse loft by Chan and Eayrs

Stitching together the past and present

Creative duo Chan and Eayrs rip up the rulebook when it comes to creating spaces, collapsing the role of architect, developer and client into one. Their latest offering is The Beldi, on the market via Space Station for £3.2m in London’s bustling Shoreditch.

The husband-and-wife duo – Zoe Chan Eayrs and Merlin Eayrs – have peeled back the layers of history across the 2,850 sq ft former shoe factory to reveal is bones and given them a minimalist makeover, inspired by their adventures.

‘Our choice of material was inspired by our travels around Morocco and the riads we visited in Marrakech, where we got married,’ says the couple. ‘These tiles were then laid out in Herringbone and Basketweave patterns, and interlocking geometries found in traditional courtyard houses in Suzhou, China, where we have travelled with our young daughter, Max. Casting your eye across the floor is like reading a woven visual map of our travels and history.’

Some 30 original Crittall windows skirt the perimeter of the converted warehouse while the vibrant palette across inside the three-bedroom London property is inspired by something a little closer to home…

‘We found the views towards St Leonard’s church and the treetops surrounding it very inspiring, as they are such a beautiful contrast to the very urban landscape at street level,’ says Zoe and Merlin. ‘To echo and amplify the verdant views out of the windows, we developed a palette of soft greens and blues inside.’

The result? ‘When you are up in the loft you almost feel like you are in a tree house.’
