Rustic Appeal Of Former Shoe Factory Residence

SATORI & SCOUT may well be advocates for a beautifully clean and contemporary house, perhaps of either warehouse conversion or modest renovation, but those apartments closest to our studio's hearts would definitely be the rustic-meets-bohemian, any especially so, when done genuinely and wholeheartedly without effort or overdoing.

Such a scenario has been achieved here in Tudor Road of London (UK). An exciting two-bedroom live / work apartment in the 'quiet' neighbourhood of London Fields, the entirety of the residence is a classic warehouse conversion that boasts exposed concrete ceilings and floors, a private courtyard garden and huge windows for all of us fans to lust over. Located on the ground floor of the building, the home has little more than a simple kitchen without any mod-cons of particular significance, nor any super-modern utilities throughout the rest of the rooms, but what results is that of utmost genuineness. Featuring the most beautiful of doors leading out to a courtyard garden beyond, it is the parquet flooring which gets our full attention, and this sleeping platform built internally upon partition walls, of utmost awesomeness.

Converted by 410 Architects, this former shoe factory warehouse is absolutely beautiful and perfect for any of those working in the creative industry. It is rare to find such a raw, authentic industrial conversion in London, and the current owners have retained the simplicity and originality of the space throughout, wholeheartedly. A neighbourhood equally genuine and excellent, can you be so surprised that such an airy, yet dark, earthy, yet colourful apartment is located in the north of London? No, and SATORI & SCOUT are in full admiration of this property; perhaps inspiration for us all. For sale, discover more about the home online at:
