Mr Clarke thinks :
This loft space is for art lovers to display their favourite pieces .
Set on the corner of Lyham Road and Prague Place, Park Lofts commands attention and invites in those with an architectural eye. It is impressive and slightly imposing. Just bold enough for the borough of Lambeth.
A former school house, what now exists is an impressively tall, voluminous one bedroom loft. The large original windows flank the front façade and cast an epic amount of light into this industrial, gallery-like space, set over two floors.
The main space is light-filled, sharp and designed for a quirkiness of style, the smart herringbone flooring paving the way for eclectic style.
The windows from the interior are dressed with Mediterranean style shutters and accessorised with vintage signage and artwork - a wonderful example of how to display your favourite pieces.
In the main living zone, an L-shaped sofa looks smart opposite the wall mounted flat screen (an option you might like to consider), the feature wall painted in a cool grey/blue tone to accent against the crisp white that otherwise washes over the loft. The stairs themselves are something of a feature, sculptural and industrial, perfectly paired with the drama of warehouse style lamps hanging from the double height ceiling.
On the ground floor beneath the mezzanine bedroom space is a perfectly formed, laid back dining space, where more artwork can grace the walls and an impressive amount of storage conceals your worldly possessions. A smart and efficient kitchen sits towards the back of the ground floor. The mint green work surfaces adding contrast to the stark white cabinetry and slate grey metro tiles. To top it all off, a downstairs shower - a masculine, steely statement - makes the best of the space, with its door tucked beneath the stairs.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The transition from open living space, to slightly more intimate dining, tucked under the top floor.
The sharp angular lines of the stairs and square set windows, are offset by the softness of the arches that are incorporated in the upstairs space. A slightly more cosy area, but still befitting of its urban setting, the top floor is chic and somewhat retro in its design statement. A galleried bedroom is the show stopper feature, which hovers over the main living and entertaining space. Here you enjoy the vastness of the home in its entirety. Again storage has been thought through and cleverly executed, utilising walk-through spaces to their best advantage and instead turning it into a dressing area with ample wardrobes and cupboards.
An office space is tucked towards the back, perfectly positioned for privacy, following in the crisp masculine interior style of the whole home. This could easily become a second bedroom.
A gorgeous touch in this space is in the bathroom upstairs, which manipulates the shuttered windows for light and ambience in the en-suite.
Outside, the development is gated and there is a private lawn and patio, connecting with neighbouring gardens of a similar format.
Park Lofts is an incredible entertaining space. Daring in its open layout and minimal style and embracing of its grand original architecture. It is exposed and yet welcoming, allowing future owners to proudly display their favourite furniture and artwork, in an industrial setting.
- Plot Twist : The current office space would make the perfect second bedroom.
- Three words : Light lofty heights.
