Over in east London we have converted an industrial warehouse in Hackney, a dilapidated Victorian building into a house for a young city lawyer.

In transforming and extending the building we have introduced a new concrete wall which rises up through three storeys and accommodates a new staircase of steel and re-cycled oak.

This stair which acts as the main vertical link through the house, as well as being an important design statement. We have deliberately maintained a limited palette of raw materials to tie in with the industrial aesthetic of the building.

Fair faced brickwork, exposed concrete, steel framed windows and re-cycled timber.
