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

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.
