LOFT LIVING, Mill Hill, London
The Lofts is a new residential development in North-West London occupying a converted 50's office building. Having been built for light industrial use, the fabric of the building lent itself to large openings and allows light deeper into the building.
The building is brought back to it’s former glory with large industrial windows and its renewed brick facade. Moving the stair core to the centre of this deep plan building allows it to be transformed into a residential building to house 28 stylish apartments, a mixture of 1, 2 & 3 bed flats arranged over three floors.
The fourth floor, perched on top of the existing structure, is set back from the building line with a sharp roof edge to complement the solid brick building. This level houses 4 penthouse flats, each with a private terrace, enjoying panoramic views.
