WELCOME TO WAREHOUSE HOME ISSUE FOUR Recent years have witnessed the widespread decline of traditional industries, and with them the iconic factories and warehouses that once sustained and stored their outputs. But these brick-built bastions of productivity continue to intrigue and inspire. Today, many are being claimed and converted by different communities, giving them new life and purpose. Photographer Debbie Bragg takes us behind the scenes of one of London’s first factory conversions (pages 4-5), while Christopher Payne has captured the colourful contrasts of New England’s last surviving mills (pages 6-7). And on both sides of the Atlantic, expansive factory spaces are being renovated for collaborative working (pages 36-37). This magazine was first inspired by, and produced in, a warehouse conversion. And, as in every instalment of Warehouse Home, Issue Four proves the rising appeal of warehouse living and working. But this edition
Directors Peter Cliffe-Roberts Sophie Bush
is also a specific celebration of materials and of the talented designer-makers and brands around the world that are upholding and reviving traditional crafts and techniques. Textiles (pages 8-9), woods (12-13) and rattans (14), resins and stone (16-17), from the finely woven to the carefully carved; industrial features are complemented by a combination of different textures. It is fitting that paper is also one of the materials we celebrate in this issue: from delicate and distinctive recycled designs (pages 10-11), to folded paper and origamiinspired details (pages 22-23). Warehouse Home is available in full online, on all major mobile devices, and has been read in over 60 countries worldwide. Yet so many of you write to share your appreciation of our print publication. Welcome to Warehouse Home Issue Four. Whether you are leafing through a printed copy or turning our digital pages, I hope you will enjoy every feature.

2. 1. “When we purchased our apartment in 2007, it had remained untouched since it was originally converted in the 1980s. The property had previously belonged to Roger Law, one of the creators of Spitting Image, the renowned British satirical puppet show; and when we moved in, we found a life-size Margaret Thatcher in a cupboard!” 2. “The Spratt’s Factory has a strong industrial heritage and a character that inspires creativity. Every warehouse home within the complex is as individual as its owner. I’m thoroughly enjoying learning about my neighbours’ varied professions and their crafts and I am really excited to create a body of work to celebrate this unique development and its residents.” DEBBIE BRAGG
POPLAR CULTURE Once the largest pet food factory in the world, the Spratt’s Complex in Poplar, East London, was transformed as live-work units between 1985 and 1989. Six substantial red-brick warehouses, set around a series of courtyards, stand imposingly beside the Limehouse Cut canal and still bear original signage. And long after the factory closed, the complex still hums with life and productivity.
pratt’s Works was one of the first residential warehouse conversions in London. Each unit was sold as a basic shell, to be completed by its owner. And the original factory features, including expansive windows and dramatic double-height spaces, as well as the potential for open-plan living, have always made the complex popular with artists. Today, the creative community at Spratt’s is thriving, with musicians, painters and designers all drawn to, and drawing inspiration from, the industrial environs. One long-term resident, documentary photographer Debbie Bragg, has embarked on a new project to catalogue her neighbours’ diverse professions and distinctive homes. Capturing residents in their apartments and studios throughout the Works, Debbie demonstrates that this enormous former factory continues to be a hive of activity. Here, we step inside four homes at Spratt’s, including Debbie’s own. To follow the project as it develops, and see more behind the scenes at this unique development, visit debbiebragg.com

5. The home of author and mid century modern dealer Andrew Weaving is a showcase for recognisable furniture designs by Herman Miller and Eames. Whitewashed exposed brickwork and large factory windows set the scene for spare simplicity and ensure the individually selected modern classics do the talking. Andrew has lived at Spratt’s Works since 2007 and shares this sophisticated studio with his partner Ian, son Nathan and dogs Dana and Timothy. It is here that Andrew also spends time at his original hand loom, weaving distinctive textiles and cushion covers. centuryd.com
Balconies, private terraces and a large communal roof garden offer escape from the bustle of the city with spectacular views over Canary Wharf. This secret rooftop garden immediately convinced Debbie Bragg to purchase her apartment.
4. 4. Ian Berry’s remarkable indigo coloured art is painstakingly created from many small pieces of denim, individually selected by shade, then cut, stitched and glued in multiple layers. From urban scenes to life portraits, even at touching distance the intricate works give the appearance of blue-toned photographs or oil paintings. Ian’s open-plan live-work apartment at Spratt’s is almost entirely devoted to his craft, with salvaged denim carefully catalogued and hung by colour. Much of the floor of Ian’s home is covered with scraps and lengths. He even sleeps amongst his materials, in a denim teepee. ianberry.org

The oldest operating mule-spun wool mill.
The dying house has been in business since the Civil War.
t is a sad truth that much of America’s once thriving textile industry has been outsourced to overseas locations and their cheaper workforces. And left in the wake are many abandoned mills. Those few that remain have either been forced to adapt to the modernisation of an industry now dominated by foreign imports, or they are fortunate enough to still cater to a niche market that values origin and craftsmanship over costs. Visiting the mills near his birthplace, photographer Christopher Payne set out not only to capture New England’s textile heritage, but also to honour those individuals who are responsible for preserving small-scale manufacturing and craftsmanship in America, in spite of the global competition and unrelenting technological progress.
RUNS OF THE MILL Architectural photographer Christopher Payne is renowned for his documentation of America’s industrial heritage. In ‘Textiles’ he catalogues 25 of the last remaining mills in New England. As their machines run continuously, it took several months for Christopher to achieve some shots, when certain colours appeared and mechanisms aligned. And vibrations caused by the machinery were a challenge. But in capturing the transformation of raw fibre to finely wound and woven threads, this series is a vibrant celebration of an industry determined, and deserving, to survive.

Eroding History A current exhibition by British printmaker Elizabeth Hayley focuses on the decline of the traditional industries in the UK. Dismantled buildings are the focus of metal works, which are hand brushed with photographic emulsion. The process distorts the image in a way that emotively encapsulates the eroding of a rich industrial past. Prices upon request, elizabethhayley.com
Elizabeth lives on a 36ft Lugger and many of her photographic subjects, from boatyards to saw mills, are situated on the riverside.
Elizabeth Haley’s photographs of traditional environments such as mills and boatyards are presented in large scale on metal sheets including, fittingly, metal traditionally used in the construction of various boat hulls.
While the photographs depict a disappearing world, they also suggest the positive impact of redeveloping and repurposing for new uses.
Malleable Objects by Elizabeth Hayley are on display at Snape Maltings, in Suffolk, 11th June to 9th July. Parts of the maltings yet to be restored feature in the series. snapemaltings.co.uk
In this post-industrial age, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become too dependent on imports. We have no idea where goods come from or how things are made. If there is a basic message Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to convey in my photographs, this is it: manufacturing still matters. This is a celebration of manufacturingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not a eulogy.

Newer models, like those shown here at Fall River Knitting Mills, Massachusetts, share the same function but can create more complicated garments in less time. 2.

FINELY MILLED A variety of textiles will add texture and visual interest to an interior, contrasting effectively with industrial features. A number of independent designers and brands are reviving traditional techniques. And these colourful knitted, woven, crocheted and stitched designs will complement any home year-round. Follow the thread and peruse our selection of the best and brightest fruits of the loom.
WEAVING THE WAY When Daniel Harris was inspired to rescue a rusting Victorian loom from an old barn in rural Wales, he had no previous weaving experience. Entirely self-taught, Daniel has individually restored a number of original shuttle looms and over the last five years he has established a successful micro-mill on the outskirts of London. The London Cloth Company produces over 60 different types of indigo cloth and an extensive array of fine British wool tweeds as well as taking custom orders.

At Warehouse Home, we are passionate about exceptional design and supporting talented designer-makers. We also feel strongly about recycling and sustainability. While a printed publication is at the heart of our business, it is published on 100% recycled paper stock. And we have devised a unique way of dealing with damaged or ‘waste’ copies. Warehouse Home Issue One became pendant lamps, Issue Two was transformed into wall and table clocks. This year, identifying recycled paper and paper-based designs as a key interiors trend, we commissioned seven talented designers to each rework small batches of Warehouse Home Issue Three. These one-off pieces are available exclusively to purchase through mywarehousehome.com/shop
Maria’s studio Crea-re takes its name from ‘creativity’ and ‘recycling’. The shape of this Quartz lamp was directly inspired by geological forms, with an angular pulp paper shade and matching ceiling rose.
Liverpool based furniture and product designer Dan Hoolahan glued together dozens of pages of Warehouse Home. Once dry, the solid material was sawn, drilled and milled to form small vessels.
Product designer Laura Nelson carefully folded individual pages of Warehouse Home, before securing the fanned out pages with a custom-made fitting to create a simple and pretty light shade.
Berlin studio Hettler Tüllmann created the Paper Knitted Chair (above, top) by slowly turning and twirling thin paper layers into delicate yet resilient ropes, which were then carefully knitted by hand around a blue metal chair frame. The Paper Rope Chair (above) was also crafted from 100% recycled paper ropes. But for this design, the paper ropes were woven around a rattan structure, using the traditional tools and techniques of wicker craftsmanship. The blue weaving thread used in the Paper Rope Chair complements the natural tones of the recycled paper ropes. Made to order, prices on request, hettlertullmann.com
The work of each of these talented craftspeople celebrates the beauty of British wood. Combining traditional techniques and modern applications, they demonstrate a deep appreciation of the innate qualities of the material and a concern that it speaks for itself. The effect is, naturally, striking.

Lorna Singleton is a ‘swiller’, specialising in woven wooden products made using locally coppiced oak. Oak woodlands have been coppiced for centuries; the practice opens up the canopy and allows more light to reach the plants below. Swilling is the ancient craft of coppicing, and then boiling, soaking, splitting and weaving oak. Today, it is practiced by only a few craftspeople in the UK. Lorna cuts and prepares the wood by hand, managing and restoring coppiced woodland in Cumbria in a responsible and renewable way. She only uses traditional hand tools, finding that they are not only more efficient but also more enjoyable to use and capable of producing stronger products. Many of her pieces combine old heritage patterns from the Furness area of Cumbria together with more modern features. Lorna also holds regular workshops, teaching others her distinctive craft. lornasingleton.co.uk

Whole Fine Yarns Royal College of Art graduate Laura Fletcher launched her debut homeware collection in 2014. A former freelancer, working in fashion and trend forecasting, Laura had always loved colour and stripes. The textile designer lives in Suffolk, on the east coast of England, and draws inspiration from the subtle beauty of her natural surroundings, from timeworn tree bark to weathered rope found on the beach. With a strong eye for colour and contrasts, Laura captures these elements in photographs, which she then references to make yarn windings to take to the loom. These luxury cushions are all handwoven in natural yarns at a traditional Suffolk silk mill. They combine neutral backgrounds with dashes of stronger colours, while subtle variations in the woven linen, wool and cotton also add character and visual interest to each. laurafletchertextiles.co.uk
Handwoven in natural yarns, this stack of pretty textured cushions by Laura Fletcher has a calm yet contemporary palette. From ÂŁ49 each, including duck feather pad.
INTO THE FOLD This traditional warehouse home, characterised by exposed brick and wooden floors, has received a contemporary and minimalist treatment for the summer. Offering Scandinavian simplicity with oriental notes, our bedroom has light wood furniture and soft accent shades. Origami and accessories based on pleated paper complement raw heritage elements.

LIGHTING In the 18th century, a third of Britain’s leather supply came from Bermondsey in London. The capital’s principal leather working district was conveniently located; it was surrounded by countryside, the Thames offered a constant water supply and local butchers provided the hides. The former tanneries and leather exchanges are now homes and work spaces. The area's surviving road names, such as Tanner Street and Leathermarket Street, evoke its smelly past.
Nomadic Light, £880 This multi-functional light can be carried, suspended or placed on a desk or shelf. Its shape mimics a traditional worker’s lamp.
Icon Lamp, £528 Boiled leather can be formed into shapes and becomes rigid once dry. These lamps can be carried by their leather handles.
HIDES TO SEEK SUPPLE STYLE
FINE OUTLINE London designer Katharina Eisenkoeck combines leather with lightweight concrete to create lamps that are beautiful and durable. Boiling the leather enables it to be formed and gives it the stiffness required to serve as a handle. The sculptural shapes of the Icon Lamps and Nomadic Lights recreate familiar silhouettes and the cordless designs enhance their versatility and portability. LED lights switch on and off with just a simple tap or touch. katharinaeisenkoeck.com
The tactile quality of leather lighting makes it the ideal accompaniment to exposed brickwork and raw concrete in warehouse homes. But the traditional charm of natural hide will also suit a variety of environments and interior styles. Designers worldwide are employing traditional techniques and modern technologies to craft simple shades and imaginative, intricate forms. Cut, stitched and tooled, in original tans and dyed, these smart pendant designs made our cut. It’s time to saddle up and go hell for leather with lighting.
LAMP OF LUXURY
Leather is a unique and technically versatile material. We illustrated its potential by using it as a lighting component. The result is modern but with a vintage charm. B e n wa h r l i c h , d e s i g n e r

WOOD WORKS From prints on ply panels to imaginatively framed shavings and chippings, these lovely artworks utilise wood’s natural beauty and colour. In warehouse homes, wooden wall art complements original timber beams and flooring and contrasts effectively with exposed brickwork. But the tone and texture of these unusual designs will also suit country houses and contemporary city apartments.
I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible.

n the west coast of Long Island, New York, two former factories have been converted into hip hotels. One is in Queens while the other is in Brooklyn, each has a strong industrial heritage and its own unique appeal. Both hotels are only a short journey from Manhattan, yet sufficiently removed to offer escape from the bustle. Where workers once toiled through lengthy shifts, a slower pace of life is now positively encouraged. We can certainly see why Paper Factory Hotel and Wythe Hotel attract local trendies and design-conscious out-of-towners.
1. 50-foot tall neon HOTEL signage was created by artist Tom Fruin using salvaged New York street signs. 2. There’s a unique view from every one of the factory windows.

Paper Factory Hotel 37-06 36th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101 This factory, built in 1922, was first home to the Pilot Radio Company, where radios and radio parts were manufactured for home use. During WWII, the plant went into the production of communication devices. As paper production began to soar, in direct relation to the newspaper industry boom during the war, the huge site became a paper mill. But by 1970, the building and the neighbourhood had fallen into neglect. The area experienced a resurgence during the dot com era, but it wasn’t until 2012 that a developer saw potential in the towering industrial
complex at its heart. The conversion retains or reclaims many of the factory’s original features. There are polished concrete floors and vintage hammered metal doors throughout. 12-foot high ceilings and expansive windows fill the public spaces and inviting guest rooms with air and natural light. Occasional steampunk details are juxtaposed with unusual upcycled elements. But one of the most striking installations is a fitting commemoration to the hotel’s former function; a majestic, century old paper printing machine. paperfactoryhotel.com

The hotel’s dramatic spiral staircase features a towering central column of hardback books. 3. The Paper Factory Hotel stands in the heart of Queens, a symbol both of the neighbourhood’s industrial past and recent regeneration.

3. Making a reservation at Wythe Hotel, you will have the option to choose from accommodation ranging from reasonably priced bunk-beds to factory chic corner lofts. 4. Reynard is overseen by Andrew Tarlow, a renowned restaurateur widely credited for Brooklyn’s culinary ascendancy. The restaurant serves contemporary cuisine in a rich industrial environment. 5. White subway tiles line the bathroom walls, which are decorated in a smart monochrome palette. 6. Wake up to fantastic views over Brooklyn in the Historic Corner King room.
This former textile building, set one block back from the Williamsburg waterfront, was built in 1901. It once stood at the heart of a thriving industrial region but over the years, with the decline of manufacturing, the area has been claimed by new communities and creatives. The factory was converted in 2012. While Wythe Hotel is certainly Williamsburg’s first boutique offering, it might just lead the pack for its
interiors. With exposed brick walls, timber beamed ceilings and cast-iron columns, the building exudes genuine industrial style. Understated décor, characterised by reclaimed and vintage furniture, is complemented by witty custom-designed wallcoverings such as the Wythe Toile depicting local urban scenes. The factory windows and popular rooftop bar offer amazing views of Manhattan. wythehotel.com
My wife and I built Paper Mill Studios together in order to realise a long-term dream of having our home, work and the people we love all together under one roof. This has transformed all our passion and enthusiasm into the most incredible place to be.

The vast open-plan spaces of former factories, mills and warehouses are ideal for redevelopment for office use. With the rising popularity of collaborative working, facilities are springing up in cities around the world. And freelancers, entrepreneurs and startups are flocking to them. Two new, very different conversions, on either side of the Atlantic, prove that the imaginative reuse of industrial buildings can foster creativity, collaboration and a sense of community.
PAPER MILL STUDIOS ISLINGTON, LONDON Paper Mill Studios are the realisation of a long-term ambition for photographer Sam and stylist Sarah. They worked closely with Gresford Architects and Stack London to bring new life to a former industrial building, just a stone’s throw from ‘Silicon Roundabout’. For Sam and Sarah Robinson this is a live-work arrangement. But the creative workspace evokes the essence of a stylish warehouse home throughout. Original timber floors and beams, together with exposed London brick, are a striking backdrop for the thoughtfully conceived interiors, combining vintage and reclaimed elements. It’s an intimate and inspirational setting where like-minded creatives come to share space and ideas. papermillstudios.com
Paper Mill Studios is home to photographic and film studios, as well as kitchen sets and event spaces. Desk rentals are available on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
COWORKRS comprises communal work zones as well as enclosed offices, together with kitchen and dining areas, glass conference rooms, a lounge and a large rooftop terrace. The new venue offers over 500 desks for the next generation of startups.
COWORKRS BROOKLYN, NEW YORK A dramatic blue origami-inspired staircase is the defining feature of the COWORKRS headquarters in Brooklyn. Devised by LEESER Architecture, the metal stairway unfolds through the three levels of the former factory. Yves Klein Blue on the exterior and teal on the interior, its dynamic form cleverly connects communal spaces, creating a sense of visual continuity and cohesion, and on the ground floor it unfolds into a co-working table. The raw fabric of the industrial building has been retained, from concrete columns, timber beams and exposed brick to original graffiti. Contemporary interventions are clearly distinguished. Colourful pathways run throughout the industrial building, linking the stairways and suggesting circulation routes. Bands of lighting recessed into the floors and cabinetry define the common areas. cowork.rs / leeser.com
