Before this dazzling transformation, Clapton Warehouse was divided into small separate rooms and had little natural daylight.

Inspired by a flower bouquet, DelightFULL’s designers designed Madeleine, an industrial pendant lighting. With four cone swiveling pinhole lights, this brass pendant lamp features a matte white interior and a gold powder paint inside finishing.

Before the refurbishment, the space did not function very well and the inner rooms were too dark,” Sadie Snelson told. “It suffered from damp problems, with condensation on the windows.

The designers removed all dividing walls and created an open-plan living room in order to maximize light.

Materials used throughout the property are intended to reflect its industrial nature. Walls are left unpainted to expose the plaster finish, and structural I-beams are left exposed. But the team also added oiled oak flooring to make the space feel more welcoming.

A staircase constructed from sheets of welded steel leads up to the first-floor mezzanine, which cantilevers beyond the steel columns and out over the living space.

We wanted the new structural elements to be distinct from the existing as far as possible,” said Snelson. “The corner of the mezzanine actually hangs from a rod in the ceiling, as well as cantilevering out from an existing floor steel as we did not want to create a connection into the adjacent column.”

“The stairs are supported on steel tabs which are welded to a beam concealed in the wall,” she said. “The balustrade railing was conceived as a ribbon, but it is actually bearing the load of the staircase.” 

A white-tiled kitchen is also the perfect addition to this home. Steel sheets were paired with Critall-style windows to create a double-height partition between the living area and photographer’s workspace.

The cave-like shower was constructed from tadelakt – a specialist waterproof plaster traditionally used to coat palaces, hammams, and bathrooms in Morocco.
