Private Residence in Shoreditch

London, United Kingdom

This project consists on the refurbishment of a one-bedroom private residence in Shoreditch, in Central London. It is located within a former multi-storage industrial 19th Century building. The proposal recovers the previously neglected cast-iron structural elements. At the same time, it establishes new residential spaces by laying out a series of built-in furniture pieces that follow a constant grid. All pieces of furniture emerge as the main defining elements in the domestic spaces. A consistent timber joinery system is utilized in different ways such as desk, shelf, cabinet, kitchen or closet.

The dim London sunlight is maximized in by a set of big mirrors embedded in the joinery grid. This set of mirrors is aimed to reflect the natural light coming in through the balconies on the opposite wall. It therefore makes the most of the ideal location of this residence in Shoreditch.

The materiality of the proposal is completed by different carefully selected white and grey marbles that cover the bathroom and kitchen surfaces, and by natural wood and fiber pieces of furniture specially chosen for the site.
