Shoreditch Living

Bacon Street House, London: GBP 2,650,000

Shoreditch is a neighbourhood bursting with creative energy, achingly hip but with a distinctive rough edge which keeps it firmly grounded in reality.  This striking house in Bacon Street is a perfect reflection of this fascinating neighbourhood.

What the agent says: "Located just off Brick Lane in the heart of Shoreditch, this remarkable contemporary house has dynamic double-height living spaces and a roof terrace with spectacular views of the City skyline.  Built for his own occupation by the architect William Russell in 2002, the house was extended and altered by Form Design Architecture in 2009.  It is recognised as a significant example of modern residential architecture and has been widely published."

What we love:
The raw aesthetic of the architecture and interior space, from the concrete surfaces to the vast windows, which echoes the edginess of its Brick Lane location.  Plus the roof terrace is simply gorgeous.

What we would do:
Using wooden floorboards throughout would inject warmth in the space and provide a pleasing contrast to the concrete.  The roof terrace would be great to use as an entertainment space rather than as a study.

The house on Bacon Street is marketed by The Modern House.  Prices and details correct as at 27 May 2016.

Industrial Style

Product Inspiration

Industrial style is not just about concrete and glass, natural wood and warmer textures work surprisingly well too.  The Gentry sofa from Moroso in a grey, heavy knitted fabric would look great in the space, as would the beautiful walnut version of the Emea bar stool from Alki.

 

The high tech look of the I.Rain 37 suspension light from Blackbody works really well with high ceilings and can be customised to create unique designs, whilst the Asterisco table light from LZF is great way to add some soft glow at table top level.

 

Living in a cool neighbourhood like Shoreditch requires cool accessories.  Check out the storm-proof umbrellas from Senz and the slick and functional bags from Nava.
