A London Warehouse Conversion with a Black deVOL Kitchen

This building on the south bank of the River Thames was a warehouse for the busy docks in London in the late nineteenth century. However, it is believed that the building dates back as early as 1810, making it one of the oldest surviving buildings on the Rotherhithe peninsula.

In the late 1990s, Fletcher Priest Architects and Torben Rix Arkitekt transformed these historic warehouses into award-winning apartments. During this conversion, the architects used the light, shape, and space from the industrial building’s past, pairing it with high-quality internal structures, windows, doors, and fittings.

The current owner has an eye for design and dramatic color palettes. The kitchen is an amazing space with black cabinets from deVOL Kitchens and black walls. It is very moody and very stylish, which perfectly suits the industrial past of the two-bedroom house.

The 1055 sq ft house is split over three levels. On the ground floor, there is the kitchen and master bedroom. The first floor is home to the living room and a second bedroom. The spiral staircase in the living room leads to a small sunroom that can also be used as a home office.

The industrial heritage is visible in the living room with on both sides exposed brick walls.

The living room has adjustable timber louvers on the outside to prevent being overlooked and glare from the sun.

The kitchen is my favorite room in the house. It is designed with a deVOL shaker kitchen in Printer’s Black, Perrin & Rowen taps, Jim Lawrence wall lights, and a warm wooden worktop.
