Originally a single-storey curtain shop, this dilapidated building was completely refurbished and remodelled into a stylish one-bed apartment and a now prestigious recording studio. Fully excavating a new basement to house the studio below and the creation of an extra upper level added two extra storeys, resulting in a generous and contemporary space. Rooflights and lightwells ensure every level is flooded with natural light and a marriage between traditional and modern materials is achieved throughout, with wooden roof beams complemented by the translucent glass of the lightwells. A secluded outdoor space completes the property, surrounded by trees and greenery.
