Camden Plasterworks

Transformation of 1970’s flat conversion of a factory entrance into a chic contemporary London home

 Our clients flat was originally the entrance route to a Victorian Plasterworks located behind a row of terraced houses in Camden Town, London. Inthe 1970s it was converted into a two bedroom flat.

Norton Ellis Architects have worked with the property owners, a young dynamic couple of junior doctors to transform this cramped and dark flat conversion into a vibrant open and innovative interior.

The Architects have ingeniously adjusted the levels to maximize the use of space whilst creating a light and airy open plan feel to the apartment. The duplex apartment now has a spacious and lofty Entrance Hall, which leads down generously sized steps into a large open plan Living Room.

The Hallway also provides access to two bedrooms and a Guest Cloakroom. Access to the Master Bedroom is via a private staircase, which is hidden behind a sliding pocket fire door.  The bedroom is in the roof with an en-suite, both have roof lights to create a light filled loft space.

A bright stunning double height Kitchen is located at the end of the Living Room, which has full height glazing providing direct access to a private terraced garden, which includes an outdoor fireplace and chimney, that is part of the original factory buildings that escaped the bulldozer when the factory was knocked down and turned into flats.

Our clients are delighted with the end result:

“The flats innovative design has the ability to conjure space out of nowhere. The space has been used to its maximum efficiency without feeling cramped. The large open living areas and high ceilings invite you to relax and enjoy your surroundings. We particularly love the ample use of glazing and outdoor space beyond to create an almost rural feeling in the middle of London. We both look forward to living here for many years to come!

A big thank you to Norton Ellis!”
