Aircon House– a DIY project to beat them all

Aircon House– a DIY project to beat them all | Raw and Real Interior Design | Scoop.it
How on earth do you go about converting all 6,000 square foot of a one-time industrial building into a habitable living space? John Crace finds out
ParadigmGallery's insight:

Aircon House started out as a rocking-horse factory in the 19th century, and over the years has seen life as a stage set factory, a builders' merchants and an air-conditioning fittings factory (hence its name).

The owners, Eric Guibert and Robin Pembrooke, simply wanted more space. They certainly got it – 6,000 square feet of it.

 

Aircon House is charming. In this article you will see the beginning conversion efforts, but they had big plans for their home.

Shoreditch Loft Renovation by Affect-t
ParadigmGallery's insight:

I usually select an interior image, but today this photo won my heart over. The interior of this 200+ year old London rennovated warehouse has many great qualities and some outstanding design features. Take note of the dining space and it's lighting, the bathroom, the stairs and stair screen detail. Also the charm of the master bedroom and roof garden....enjoy and remember we like hearing from you.

ParadigmGallery's insight:

We really like so many of the design choices in this cool and hip London home. The use of concrete, bricks, vintage wood and stone add lovely earth tones and textural elements to the spaces. Color is used as punctuation and an artful note and is just enough but not too much.Textile choices add a bit of sophistication as do chandeliers, wallpaper, and rugs. Mid cetnury classic furniture is sprinkled throughout .

ParadigmGallery's insight:

Another great conversion in London! This home is very connected to it's past life as an industrial space. It has honored the raw concrete components and pipes in the design. The concrete actually makes a stronger statement in contrast to the lovely wood finnishes on the floors and doors. White walls showcase the hip and cool art choices. Overall, the incredible views of the London skyline and  very modern, minimalist amenities help to create a wonderful  #rawandreal home.
