The Beldi Loft in Shoreditch: GBP 3,200,000

Industrial Rustic Chic

The Beldi Loft in Shoreditch: GBP 3,200,000Those who think lofts are all about industrial details and multiple shades of grey should take a long look at the Beldi Loft. Designed by architects Zoe Chan and Merlin Eayrs, this converted shoe factory is full of unexpected charms. The floor is lined with handmade Moroccan Beldi tiles, arranged in different patterns to demarcate different areas. The walls and ceilings are painted in a refreshing shade of mint green, which works in perfect harmony with the natural finish of the limed oak cabinets. Much of the loft evokes the atmosphere of a tranquil courtyard straight out of Arabian Nights, unsurprising as the inspiration for the design came from the riads of Marrakech, where the architect duo got married.

What the agent says: "Occupying the entire third floor of a former shoe factory on Shoreditch High Street, this elegant three-bedroom live/work apartment has been crafted to a wonderfully refined design by celebrated husband and wife duo Chan and Eayrs. Extending to around 2,850 sq ft internally, the space is an exemplary exercise in light, craftsmanship and materials."

What we love:
The evocative combination of industrial features (such as the 30 original Crittall windows on all four sides of the loft) and contemporary rustic details such as the tiled surfaces and deep sinks.

What we would do:
A few strategically positioned rugs would add a lot of warmth to the space. This loft would also look great with a profusion of plants everywhere.

The Beldi loft in Shoreditch is marketed by The Modern House.  Prices and details correct as at 18 December 2018.
