Warehouse Home Industrial Inspiration for Twenty-First-Century Living Sophie Bush 42
‘ Warehouse Home freshens up the design market. It is full of great ideas and inspiration for contemporary living with a huge nod of respect to our industrial heritage’ Sir Terence Conran
The love of warehouse buildings has become a global phenomenon, from London to New York, Sydney to Florence. Warehouse Home takes the reader on a tour of the world’s most inspirational industrial conversions. From live-work spaces to family-friendly lofts, substantial developments to single-family dwellings, it showcases a plethora of remarkable residences in historic granaries, former textile factories, tanneries, old printworks and, of course, warehouses. Drawing on her own experience of living in a Grade II listed mill, Sophie Bush examines the qualities that make these homes truly unique: exposed timber beams and bare brickwork, structural columns and industrial doors, combined with heights and scales uncommon within more conventional homes. Case studies offer design insights and personal perspectives from the architects and homeowners. Warehouse Home also provides unique tips and ideas for achieving a warehousestyle feel in any home, and on sourcing distinctive lighting and accessories crafted from salvaged materials. Celebrating the movement for retaining the true character of neglected neighbourhoods through revitalizing the urban fabric, this book will inspire us to live, and work, differently.
