WELCOME TO WAREHOUSE HOME ISSUE THREE One of the ﬁrst bombs dropped on London at the start of the Blitz landed very close to where I’m sitting now writing this Editor’s Letter. A glance at World War II bomb damage maps (pages 6-7) reveals how much of the city was devastated by the Luftwaffe’s intensive and prolonged attacks. This Grade II listed warehouse, built in 1883, sustained some damage. But most of the nearby docks, timber yards and warehouses were completely destroyed. On the 75th anniversary of the Blitz, we admire remarkable buildings that survived and which have been restored by pioneering architects SimpsonHaugh and Partners (pages 8-9). Whether you live in a warehouse conversion or you’re channelling an industrial look, our team has searched high and low for unique and unusual designs for your home. The strong historic connections between warehouses and international trade make

map related decor (page 10), nauticalia (page 13) and maritime lighting (pages 32-33) particularly ﬁtting for warehouse homes. The latest riveted metal and wood effect wallpapers will create a striking backdrop in any space (page 15). A renewed appreciation for craftsmanship is celebrated in this issue of Warehouse Home, as we meet businesses preserving the time honoured practices of glassblowing and metal forging (pages 16-17). We also visit talented artisans of East London (page 18). Britain’s remarkable warehouses and factories – those that survived World War II – are among the last vestiges of our nation’s rich industrial past. That heritage, these buildings, should be protected - because “so much of our future lies in preserving our past.”* This warehouse, my home, inspired a publication that has now been read in over 50 countries. I hope you enjoy the third issue of Warehouse Home.

n September 1940, Germany changed the focus of its air raids against Britain. Until then, the Luftwaffe’s attacks had focused primarily on the RAF. With the new offensive, launched between 5 and 6 p.m. on Saturday 7th September 1940, ‘some 320 German bombers supported by 600 ﬁghters ﬂew up the Thames and proceeded to bomb Woolwich Arsenal, Beckton Gas Works, a large number of docks, West Ham power station, and then the City, Westminster and Kensington.’ It was the start of the Blitz, a nine-month bombing campaign of cities and targets across Britain. The focus on London was particularly ferocious and for 57 nights from 7th September, the capital was attacked every night by an average of 200 planes. During the course of WWII, over 20,000 bombs fell on the capital, over 115,000 buildings were destroyed or damaged beyond repair and nearly 30,000 Londoners were killed. While some parts of the city, particularly in the north and west, escaped relatively unscathed, for others the attacks from the air were unrelenting and the damage on the ground extensive. Following an air raid, London County Council’s district rescue officers raced to the affected areas and recorded the destruction. At County Hall,
the Architect’s Department updated bomb damage maps using the information submitted by the ‘ruin recorders’. Colour-coded damage was painstakingly inked by hand onto largescale Ordnance Survey maps, building a full account of the devastation across the capital. The colourful cartography belies the horror experienced by ordinary Londoners. Large sections of the City of London, coloured purple were “damaged beyond repair”. Almost every building on the Rotherhithe Peninsula (pictured below left) was shaded, with Surrey Docks ominously stained black, denoting “total destruction”. It is remarkable that Globe Wharf in Rotherhithe survived (today, the Grade II listed Victorian granary is home to Warehouse Home HQ). Whether you are a proud Londoner, passionate historian or collector of maps, this book is fascinating and profoundly moving. The London County Council Bomb Damage Maps 1939-1945, by Laurence Ward, published by Thames & Hudson, £48, amazon.co.uk Marking the 100th anniversary of the WWI Zeppelin air raids and WWII London Blitz, the War in London exhibition at London Metropolitan Archives will reveal the effects of five conflicts on London. It will include the London County Council bomb damage maps. 16th November 2015 - 27th April 2016, cityoflondon.gov.uk

A stunning new book published by Thames & Hudson commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Blitz. It contains the full set of meticulously hand coloured original bomb damage maps, a remarkable visual record of the extent and severity of London’s wartime devastation at a glance and in detail.

The Jam Factory London / 2003 Sir William Pickles Hartley incorporated his jam-making business in 1884 and built a factory in Bermondsey in 1902. Over 2,000 workers were once employed there. During the Blitz, it was used as a shelter but suffered a direct hit, as a witness recalled: “I remember specially a big factory that had been bombed - Hartley’s - which was quite well known as makers of marmalade and jam. And the situation there was indescribable, because the
dead were covered in marmalade.” When production at Hartley’s ended in the mid 1900s, the buildings fell into disrepair. In 1999, Ian Simpson Architects proposed a solution for the factory’s conservation, offering contemporary New York loft style living while preserving the heritage values of the site. The most signi cant intervention was the addition of glazed rooftop penthouses with far-reaching London views.

BY BRICK an Simpson established Ian Simpson Architects with his partner Rachel Haugh in 1987. Over the years, the practice has compiled an impressive portfolio of work, ranging from heritage industrial conversions to striking new builds. Celebrated projects include both residential and commercial buildings, conservation work and contemporary designs, in the UK and internationally. The mission is always to design buildings and spaces that are “appropriate, inspirational, beautiful
and exciting.” And there’s a keen desire to contribute to the regeneration of post industrial cities like Manchester, by preserving relics of the past and designing new icons for the future. The business is booming, but it certainly hasn’t been an easy journey. The recent recession, and millions in unpaid fees, took the practice to the brink and resulted in almost half the Ian Simpson had to battle to
projects (including Battersea Power Station, which went into administration in 2011) and aggressively pursued
new work to ride out the storm. With its workforce and turnover steadily rising once again, the practice has been rebranded SimpsonHaugh and Partners. Simpson and Haugh themselves remain personally involved in every project. Still based
done much to preserve the two cities’ industrial and historical identities. Having retained the project, SimpsonHaugh and Partners are currently involved with Phase I of the Battersea Power Station development, one of the UK’s most outstanding industrial
conversions for several years. The world famous power station and the other remarkable buildings featured here sustained and survived serious damage as a result of German bombing during World War II. And over the years, they had all fallen into disrepair and dereliction. SimpsonHaugh and Partners’ pioneering approach protects the raw fabric of heritage buildings and creates contemporary interventions and additions which complement rather than distract from the original character and features. We applaud them. simpsonhaugh.com
The Grand Apartments Manchester / 2000 The A Collie and Company cotton warehouse was built in 1867 by Mills and Murgatroyde. 13 years later it experienced its first conversion and became The Grand Hotel. When the hotel closed as a result of the recession in 1989, the building lay empty for years before briefly serving as a night shelter for the homeless. In 1996, Ian Simpson Architects took on its renovation. The stone and brickwork were carefully restored, a dramatic glass rooftop structure was added. The Victorian hotel’s original ballroom structure remains in the courtyard and the former warehouse contains 115 apartments.
Battersea Power Station
London / 2016
Manchester / 1997
The largest brick building in Europe, Battersea Power Station was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. It was constructed in two phases, before and after WWII, and comprises two identical power stations joined together2. It’s thought to have survived the Blitz because it was a navigational landmark for the Luftwaffe. Fully decommissioned in 1983, it fell into terrible disrepair as numerous redevelopment plans failed.
Originally built in 1825, Merchants Warehouse survived devastating bombings and fires during WWII. Today, following its redevelopment by Ian Simpson Architects, the Grade II listed warehouse offers high quality office space. Features include exposed timber beams, brickwork and cast iron columns. The development has won several awards, including a Civic Trust Award for its sensitively designed restoration.

VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY
Rebecca Gouldson creates striking metal artworks for private, public and corporate clients, her projects varying in scale from domestic pieces to imposing architectural installations. Acid etching and chemical patination form images on metal, with contrasting eroded and polished surfaces. “I’m inspired by the utilitarian beauty of metal and worn and distressed surfaces,” Rebecca explains. In 2014, Denbighshire County Council commissioned her to design a piece of public art to connect Denbigh’s town centre with its historic castle. She conceived a series of seven different cast utility covers to transform an unassuming lane into a popular passage. Heritage Ordnance Survey maps were the basis for the imaginative manhole covers, each design referencing key details from Denbigh’s past, including the railway and the glove making industry. Rebecca’s latest work includes an exclusive contribution to the Warehouse Home collection, a set of nautical inspired mixed metal discs (pages 4-5). rebeccagouldson.co.uk

1. John Myland’s modest shop in Lambeth
ritain’s oldest family-owned paint manufacturer was founded in 1884, when Honest’ John Myland opened a modest shop in Lambeth, South London. John was enthralled by the art of the colourman and insisted on the use of only the finest ingredients to create paints that were rich, lustrous and flawless. Time-honoured techniques have been handed down through four generations and, over the decades, Mylands have perfected their unique recipes and pigments. Today, Mylands is the only remaining paint manufacturer in London and still based in Lambeth. Honest John’s great-grandson Dominic is at the company’s helm. The new Colours of London collection, launched in September 2015, celebrates the business’ 130 year connection with the capital. 31 timeless colours, ranging from neutrals and delicate pastels to rich dark tones, are available in a variety of finishes. Each of the named and numbered shades pays homage to London’s landmarks and history, from famous streets and buildings to well known districts and famous figures. The iconic pitch black of o.10 Downing Street has been perfectly captured, while the London Underground’s Circle Lane has inspired a vibrant traditional yellow. Borough Market and Smithfield have been honoured too, alongside Shoreditch. Every stroke of the brush with these classic paint colours evokes an unmistakable sense of London pride. From £20 per litre, mylands.co.uk

ON A ROLL
Of f the wall “Whatever you have in your rooms,” advised William Morris, “think first of the walls for they are that which makes your house and home.” From worn and riveted metallic finishes, to parquet and peeling paint effects, these detailed and distinctive wallpapers make showstopping backdrops.

THE BLACKSMITH ARTS
In recent years, we’ve witnessed a renewed appreciation for craftsmanship and the handmade. Centuries old crafts such as metalwork, blacksmithing and glassblowing are being revived and preserved by established and emerging businesses across Britain. Continuing the time-honoured practices and sharing their specialist skills, these artisans are maintaining important connections to our nation’s rich industrial heritage.
Home Accessories & Lighting u ol Founded in 2006, Made by the Forge is a family run business. From their traditional blacksmith’s forge, they produce a range of solid wrought iron products for the home, from utensil racks and cupboard furniture to the heavy-duty Forged Originals lighting collection. Every item is carefully handcrafted to last a lifetime, with visible
hammer marks making them unique. The Farrier’s Cage Collection (below) is an imaginative industrial style reworking of classic cage lights. Forged and hammered by hand using traditional blacksmithing techniques, the pendant lights are finished with natural Suffolk beeswax to enhance every hammer blow. adeb e or e o u

BEX SIMON Bespoke Metalwork & Public Art Hoxton / London Artist blacksmith Bex Simon has a boundless enthusiasm for her craft, which she first discovered while working with clay and fabrics and studying towards a Foundation in Art. Manipulating metal into modern forms using traditional tools and techniques, she takes inspiration from nature, textures, patterns and contrasts. Focusing particularly on organic forms she describes her distinctive style as “Contemporary Art Nouveau”. Bex’s works vary in scale, from a retail range of cast iron kitchenware produced with her business partner husband to larger sculptural forms, such as railings and gates, and impressive public art commissions. Relishing the design process as much as the physical metalwork, Bex collaborates closely with her clients on every project. bexsimon.com

During WWII Sydney Schreiber’s small metalworking business made boxes for radars. After the war, he needed to find a peacetime purpose for his machinery. Today, Kaymet’s distinctive trays, trolleys and hotplates can be found around the world. Many of the original models are still in production, their simple and sturdy designs as practical and appealing as ever. Modern makeovers include contemporary colours and new finishes. kaymet.co.uk
Glassblowing can be traced back to the second millenium BC. It can take up to seven years training to hone the time-honoured techniques involved in the practice and to become a master glass maker. In a process called ‘gathering’, the end of a pre-heated hollow blowing iron is dipped into molten glass in a furnace and turned, wrapping the glass around the iron. The blowing iron must then be rotated constantly as the blower uses gravity to centre and shape the molten glass. This is ust the first in several complex stages.
LONDON GLASSBLOWING Decorative Glass Bermondsey / London When London Glassblowing was established by renowned artist Peter Layton in 1976, it was among the first hotglass studios in Europe. Each of Peter’s signed individual pieces is free blown, permitting

ROTHSCHILD & BICKERS Lighting Hertford
Founded in 2007 by Victoria Rothschild & Mark Bickers, this Hertford based glassblowing studio handmakes every design in its collection to order. In addition to the signature range, clients can also request bespoke work. The sophisticated lighting selection is created using re ned
glassblowing skills and pure molten glass is handformed using only calipers as a measure. Keen to promote and preserve this special craft, the company runs an apprenticeship programme for its growing workforce. The shared passion for glassglowing is evident amongst the skilled staff, who describe glass manufacture as a “team sport” for committed contributors. rothschildbickers.com

new book by independent publisher Hoxton Mini ress provides a glimpse inside the workshops and studios of 26 of East London’s most talented and inspirational craftspeople. From spoon carvers and shoe makers to glass blowers and sign painters, some of the featured businesses have been in continuous service for centuries while others are contemporary companies reinvigorating traditional crafts.

Neon Sign Maker Walthamstow
Print Makers Graham Bignell founded New North Press in 1986 with two Albion printing presses and a set of type. He’s been adding to his collection ever since and the Hoxton studio is now lined with plan chests filled with hundreds of tiny metal characters. Many of the typefaces have never been converted into digital form. “There is no comparison,” Graham explains, “between printing digitally and using letterpress. Both are a means of conveying a message, but you can see and feel the difference. Letterpress has a tactile quality.” Graham and his business partners Richard Ardagh and Beatrice Bless are committed to preserving the centuriesold craft by running monthly workshops, passing on their knowledge. They also take on special commissions and recently produced a limited edition print for the Warehouse Home capsule collection (pages 4-5).

BELLERBY & CO Globe Makers Stoke Newington When Peter Bellerby set about handcrafting a globe for his father’s 80th birthday, he expected the project to take a few months. What became a four-year obsession inspired a new career. “I never planned to make things for a living,” Peter
reflects, “it was a hobby that got out of control.” Today, in a former stable block, Peter’s small specialist team hand craft bespoke globes for discerning clients all around the world; and Bellerby & Co globes have found fame in television programmes and Hollywood movies.
THE NEW CRAFT REVOLUTION
Rob Court has been creating neon signs and lighting since his parents rented their fruit and vegetable warehouse to a local neon sign maker who took an intrigued 17-year-old under his wing. The craft takes years to master and Rob has been blowing glass in his East London workshop for two decades. His clients include the Dalai Lama, Paul McCartney and Oprah Winfrey.
JAMES KENNEDY Bike Maker De Beauvoir 1880s London was home to a bicycle building cottage industry driven by the city’s wheelwrights and carriage-makers. Following a frustrating trip to purchase his wife’s first bike and after building his own, modern day Londoner James Kennedy was inspired “to make the ultimate city bicycle using the right balance of reliability, beauty, practicality and value for money.”
With its local docks, warehouses and wharves, Bermondsey once had a strong connection to the sea. In the 19th century the area was known for its ropewalks and tanneries.

Adrian Amos is the seventh generation of his family involved in the timber trade. But the business he runs today is a far cry from the ventures of his ancestors. With the eighth generation, his two sons, now also involved, we celebrate the continued success of architectural salvage company LASSCO. PHOTOGRAPHY BY JAMES HARRISON
Adrian Amos Owner, LASSCO The Amos family’s woodworking lineage dates back to the 1700s and the forests of Midlothian, where Adrian Amos’ ancestors provided timber for a variety of trades. The family relocated to Bow, in London’s East End, with Adrian’s great-greatgreat grandfather. And, several years down the line, Adrian’s grandfather George established a cabinetmaking business in East London with his ﬁve sons. But where his grandfather specialised in crafting furniture for customers, when Adrian joined the family business in the 1970s he spotted an opportunity to rescue and repurpose original features. While it was en vogue at the time to strip out period details, there remained a healthy appreciation for those architectural embellishments elsewhere. Decided upon shifting the business from cabinetmaking towards salvage, Adrian rebranded the company LASSCO (London Architectural Salvage and Supply Co). It quickly made its mark amongst the demolition contractors, antiques dealers and scrap metal merchants. And the rest, as they say, is history. Today, LASSCO’s ever evolving hoard is housed
between three historic outposts, each with its own unique character and specialisms. The business is headquartered at Brunswick House, an 18th century villa overlooking Vauxhall roundabout. There is an 18th coaching inn near Oxford. And in Bermondsey, a short distance from Warehouse Home’s Rotherhithe HQ,

Three Resident LASSCO Experts
LASSCO Ropewalk resides in a series of grade II listed railway arches. Artefacts, antiques and architectural salvage from every conceivable building of note in London have passed through LASSCO’s doors. Over the years, you might at any time have stumbled upon abandoned objects from Buckingham Palace or The
Tower of London, treasures from The Savoy or the Royal Opera House and industrial remnants from Docklands warehouses. For the Warehouse Home team, LASSCO Ropewalk is ever a source of inspiration. And if you need any further encouragement to visit, there’s an excellent weekend food market. lassco.co.uk

Nick Newman (centre), manager of LASSCO Ropewalk, is the company’s director of ﬂooring and timber. He is pictured here with a selection of reclaimed lock gate elm salvaged from the Grand Union Canal (£18 per ft). Jasper Rolfe (left) lives on a barge and is only too happy amongst the salvaged timbers of LASSCO’s ﬂooring yard, or sorting through the company’s latest haul of artefacts and nauticalia. Royal College of Art graduate Georgia Dorey is shown here with handcrafted sailing smocks (from £80 each). Georgia established LASSCO’s Textiles Department in 2013. Under her creative direction, LASSCO now offers a range of imaginatively remade materials, from cruise liner blankets crafted into cushions and smocks, to nautical ﬂags and grain sacks reimagined as handy totes and dog beds.
With this issue’s focus on nauticalia, we sought out some of LASSCO’s finds from the waterways and high seas. And we found plenty to play with for a maritime look.

PAST GLORY In this Victorian warehouse conversion, we style a smart and inviting living room for winter evenings. Entomological prints and artefacts, combined with botanical and topographical elements, evoke strong links to the past. A rich green palette and sumptuous velvets complement vintage and industrial details and exposed brickwork. The resulting scheme retains an old world sophistication, while offering a welcoming retreat at the end of a long modern day.
Textured surfaces like raw timber and riveted metal create a strong contemporary contrast to vintage details and complement original industrial features. Luxurious velvets and traditional tweed soften the look, while adding a sophisticated air. L U C Y G O U G H , I N T E R I O R S ST Y L I ST , L U C Y G O U G H ST Y L I ST . C O M

A Fine Weave In 2008, designer NadiaAnne Ricketts identified an arithmetic connection between the architecture of music and that of woven cloth. A professional dancer and weaver, she was excited by the opportunity to explore this relationship and developed a sophisticated software programme to translate the invisible formations of music into exquisitely detailed textiles. Simply by playing songs and sounds, BeatWoven’s state-ofthe-art audio technology can extract geometric patterns and reinvent them for traditional weaving. “To be able to express that intangible quality of music in a tactile form is very special,” says Nadia-Anne. Warehouse Home’s new capsule collection includes an exclusive BeatWoven cushion based on Frank Sinatra’s ‘Fly Me To The Moon’. BeatWoven is also featured in Digital Handmade: Craftsmanship and the New Industrial Revolution, by Lucy Johnston. Nadia-Anne Ricketts is one of 80 exemplary global designers recognised as being at the very forefront of the digital artisans movement. £29.95, amazon.co.uk

POINT TO POINT A post-war British icon, the understated Esavian desk was conceived by English designer James Leonard. Esavian was the trading name for the Educational Supply Association Ltd, a leading supplier of functional and affordable school furniture, fixtures and books. There is some dispute over whether the distinctive compass-inspired leg design was the original brainchild of James Leonard or his French counterpart Jean Prouvé. But there is no denying the enduring appeal of this mid-century classroom classic.

TRAVEL A great hotel should be somewhere that makes you feel happy, excited and spoilt when you arrive, and genuinely sorry to leave at check-out. It should make you feel like you could live in, but give something more than you have at home – with interiors that feel effortless yet special. ja m e s L o h an
Tamara & James Lohan’s Tips for a Boutique Hotel Inspired Home
TIME TO TRAVEL
Invest in an incredible mattress and excellent bed linen. This combination is what makes sleeping in a great hotel bedroom so special – the linen should always feel beautiful against your bare skin. (TL)
I’m obsessed with scents and my favourite hotels smell amazing. Use quality scented candles in your home. And if you travel long haul, invest in some Altitude Oil by de Mamiel – it will transform your journey and will help you relax. (TL)
BEST FOR Historic architecture and a hipster vibe in LA’s one-time theatre district.
Think carefully about your lighting – it makes such a difference to the mood. Use low lighting and candles for a soft and sultry glow. (TL)
Consider your art. It’s easy to throw money at artworks, without thinking about what role they’re playing. Buying great art – and then positioning it in a context that works – takes great skill. (JL)
Avoid cookie-cutter collectables. A few carefully chosen curios add interest and personality to a space. I love to forage in emporiums like Alfies Antiques (alfiesantiques.com) or The Old Cinema (theoldcinema.co.uk). (JL)
r & Mrs Smith is a hand-picked collection of the world’s finest boutique hotels, the definitive guide to special places to stay. We spoke to Mr & Mrs Smith founders, Tamara and James Lohan, about their favourite global retreats and discussed their tips for channelling hotel style at home. From America to Morocco, each of these four exemplary retreats from the Mr & Mrs Smith collection offers interiors ideas to steal. Which will inspire you to rethink your scheme?
Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles 929 South Broadway, Los Angeles, California 90015 Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles opened in early 2014 in the historic former United Artists building. The iconic Spanish Gothic tower, once the tallest in the city, was built in 1927 to enable Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffith to screen their maverick studio’s films. The Ace Hotel has similar indie origins and retains that nonconformist attitude. The eclectic interiors combine raw and salvaged materials with modern finishing touches. There is a surprising juxtaposition of utilitarian
“For me a hotel interior isn’t about luxury fittings, it’s about style, comfort and attention to detail. A hotel should have thought carefully about making spaces feel comfortable and intimate.” Ta m a r a L o h an
and opulent, reverant and irreverant. The once richly ornate interiors have largely been stripped back to reveal a brutalist concrete structure beneath. But this raw industrial backdrop is offset with nods to Hollywood in the roaring twenties. And, of course, there are frequent visual references to the movies, such as film scripts repurposed as tongue-in-cheek wallpaper. The impressively preserved United Artists Theatre is the perfect place to take in a show, although suites with turntables and acoustic guitars offer the opportunity for private parties too. The mezzanine bar, overlooking the restaurant, is the perfect place to unwind in the afternoon. But cocktails are best enjoyed at sunset beside the rooftop pool with farreaching views over Downtown and the City of Angels.
Living the Shoreditch life with swagger
100 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JQ The first UK outpost for the American Ace Hotel group arrived in London in 2013. Sited in the heart of London’s creative hub and a stone’s throw from Silicon Roundabout, it is the place to be seen. Grab a morning caffeine fix in the coffee shop or detox at the juice bar and mingle with students and start-ups in the lobby. The interiors have been given a stripped-back warehouse style and the fashionable Conversewearing staff look like they’ve just arrived for a loft party. In the Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby designed guest rooms, industrial decor and Bohemian details create a relaxed and comfortable ambiance reminiscent of a trendy friend’s apartment. Patchwork indigo bedspreads complement raw denim headboards while perforated metal storage is offset by charcoal coloured ceilings.
Contemporary style in a Berber abode

Original artwork hangs in every room. The radios are programmed with Ace-curated stations and deluxe rooms and suites include turntables and vinyl libraries. Dinner at Hoi Polloi is followed by dancing to a DJ set in the bar. ‘Bedtime stories’ recorded by famous authors will help you wind down after all the excitement.

Route de l’Ourika Km13, Douar al khadir al kadim, Tassoultant Far from the bustle of the medina, and with just ten perfectly appointed villas, this boutique lodge offers pure escapism. The unique hideaway’s contemporary interiors combine Moroccan arts and modern installations from car chassis, although the panoramic views of the Atlas mountains will continually draw you outside. The very well appointed library doubles as a language research centre and is worth investigating.
Miss Clara Sveavägen 48, 111 34 Stockholm A former girls’ school renovated by celebrated architect Gert Wingardh, Miss Clara is a boutique bolthole on a bustling Stockholm boulevard. The building was constructed in 1910 and the hallmarks of its original Art Nouveau design remain intact. In a nod to the past, parquet features extensively. And with their elegant marble bathrooms,understated decor and retractable workspaces, the rooms are best in class.

When architect Lukasz Zagala and his wife Magda undertook the renovation of a former Prussian army stable, they adhered to the medical principle first do no harm . The conversion took several years, as the couple worked tirelessly to preserve the buildingâ€™s original masonry and woodwork, creating clear distinctions between old and new. Striking modern additions industrial elements and a monochrome palette complete a unique family home.

2 LIVING ROOM A clamp-on lamp adds height and interest to a low table and provides downward light for evening entertaining.
1 BEDROOM A pair of articulating bedside lamps creates smart symmetry by day and serves a practical purpose at night.
Lamp lustre ILLUMINATION ICONS In 1921, BernardAlbin Gras designed a series of robust, ergonomic lamps for offices and industrial environments. Gras was one of the most innovative designers of the 20th century. nd over 90 years later, the timeless Gras lamp is collected and coveted by design-conscious homeowners as well as professionals. We take inspiration from these exceptional homes, each demonstrating a different use for the iconic lamp.
3 KITCHEN Suspended lights from the ceiling can be repositioned depending on how the space is being used.
4 STUDY A good task lamp will provide strong focused light for desktop reading and writing.
