A bold piece of contemporary architecture that responds to urban living in creating a generous internal layout with cool industrial outside space.
The Lodge is a pair of apartments conceived and created by the artist Anthony Gross in collaboration with Barnaby Gunning Architects.
The two floor, four bedroom property sits in a renovated and extended 1950’s caretakers house in a semi industrial-setting in Camberwell, South East London. The facade is surrounded by a metal mesh structure that houses balconies and a social area for the different floors and apartments.
The apartment feels very much like a house – it is self-contained, with its own entrances and has an outside space that provides a good vantage point to welcome guests from. We particularly like the detailing – there are shadow gaps, a modern palate of materials and subtle tones, with careful attention to details from the stylish light fixtures and fittings, smart door furniture, and reclaimed 1950’s tiles that adorn the kitchen walls. Respecting the original building, there is a mid century modern design ethos throughout.
This part of South East London has that feel which is so difficult to find today – it is a well established community with a bohemian vibe, with a vibrant music, art and food scene. It’s an ideal mixture reflecting its diverse heritage, representing something for everyone.
