OFF LORDSHIP LANE
Located a short walk from Lordship Lane in London, and close to East Dulwich train station, this is one unique, edgy and cool looking live/work space. It's also an exciting project that's just waiting to happen.
THE MODERN HOUSE
The house is entered via a courtyard garden.
On the ground level, you'll find a large hallway that's currently used as a library and a living space. There are also two bedrooms and a utility room.
This building was formerly a bakery, and the staircase that leads between the two floors features the original white bakery tiles and metal-framed windows.
The drama kicks in on the upper level, where you'll discover a fantastic living space that's drenched in light from the giant roof light above.
There's also a kitchen and dining area. Love this metal-framed internal partition and door.
A metal spiral staircase leads from the second floor to the rooftop.
The roof has fantastic open views to Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge.
As it is today, this property offers an exciting and flexible live/work space with a hint of gritty industrial style. But there's more. Planning permission has been granted to reconfigure the current ground and first floors, and to extend the house with a new third storey. The new design is by Waugh Thistleton Architects.
The new ground level would include a library, a study and a snug.
The first floor would have three bedrooms, one en-suite, and a bathroom and office space.
The newly created upper level would offer an open plan kitchen, living and dining space, and a terrace.
With this new upper level and indoor-outdoor flow, this could be a spectacular house that still retained its inherent character.
