Bermondsey Warehouse Loft showcasing industrial elements

Bermondsey Warehouse Loft-Form Design Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

Bermondsey Warehouse Loft is situated in an industrial building that was formerly used as a tin and zinc factory, completely refitted by FORM Design Architecture in Bermondsey, a district in south London, United Kingdom. The industrial character and scale had previously been lost beneath raised floors, lowered ceilings and partitions in this 1,119 square foot (110 square meters loft).

Storage, bathroom & utility functions are contained within a sharply-detailed block ‘parked’ in the corner of the now fully revealed Loft space, with a similarly detailed linear kitchen counter block. A concealed sliding wall allows the sleeping area to be enclosed if required. At the other end, a full width counter provides a work area for the photographer owner. In between are flexible zones for dining, relaxing and exercise.

Apart from the unfinished floorboards, all surfaces are finished in white, the crisp machine-made quality of the solid acrylic blocks setting them apart from the more hand-made and time-weathered surface textures of the original industrial building. Surface finishes within the service block are in dark grey, accenting the idea of a fruit or jewel-case-like object with a smooth exterior skin contrasting with a darker, sensual core.
