Apartment with An Industrial Touch in London
By Magaly • Mar 19, 2018
This apartment with a stark industrial style is located along the Regents Canal in Islington, London, England, in the United Kingdom. The project consisted of transforming an old family home into a contemporary home, which would be energy efficient and have comfortable spaces.
The architect Nicholas Szczepaniak, from the architectural firm Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects, was in charge of the project, which was completed in the year 2017.
The project consisted of a complete remodeling of the three-story property, which covers an area of 163 square meters, including the replacement and expansion of an existing conservatory on the roof to transform it from an unusable storage room into a contemporary living space that can be used throughout the year — and with an outdoor terrace to boot.
The approach all across the project was to use materials of moderate price, and to add value through meticulous and elaborate details and care during the execution.
Inspired by the old industrial use of the building, the palette of materials incorporates raw and uncovered finishes, such as the original concrete, which contains the marks where the walls were located while the building was used as a factory. In contrast to this, elements such as the kitchen and accessories are done in warm colors and with a texture to create a unique palette of materials and, as a result, a contemporary and cozy atmosphere.
