  2. This is utterly amazing! I love literally five seconds around the corner on Westow Hill and I wondered about the shiny new look of the outside.

    If you ever want to invite anyone round for a cuppa... :)

  4. Truly wonderful renovation! I was wondering if there were a floorplan available anywhere. I'm trying to figure out where you tucked the bathroom. I can't quite parse it from the pictures. Thank you!

    1. The bathroom is roughly where the attendants room was on the Ladies side...smashed out and then rebuilt with a hidden cupboard/plumbing etc...

      Thank you I am so glad you like it!

  8. A truly inspirational renovation. Congratulations for achieving such a fantastic outcome and preserving a little bit of history. Loving living in a small house ourselves, we think you rock!

  9. Ingenious! I really love your use of colour too. There must be so many potentially habitable spaces in our cities that are completely overlooked. I live in Leeds and I have heard rumours that there is a whole subterranean level in the city centre...

  12. Hi Laura,

    I love this project. The light, the sense of space, the fitout, the furniture... even (especially?!) the oversized clock!

    I suspect it's the layout and the proportions, but there's something about the essence of what was originally there that's been retained - I can't quite put my finger on it.

    You've done an amazing job - and so pleased for you that it sounds like you've got some publicity out of it too... hopefully it equates to some additional projects that you can do an equally good job of!

    Cheers,
    Kavan

  15. Just heard you on Robert Elms' BBC London show. How impressive and inspiring! It just shows what an eye for the unusual, thinking outside the box and true persistence can do, plus a very imaginative use of space. How did you get all that natural light in without exposing yourself, so to speak, to the public above?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I too have just heard you on BBC London and come straight back to the office for a Google! I must say, the transformation is amazing, well done, it looks a lovely little home. Enjoy!

  17. Thank you so much!! Yes no-one can see in because the glass lights are very thick thankfully!

  18. Hi Laura. I live just around the corner in Jasper Rd and had no idea your place was there until I saw Amazing Spaces. what you have created is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  19. WOW Laura, you created such an amazing space! Especially impressive considering what you started with. Such talent and such fabulous taste! You are an inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Absolutely stunning!
    I can only imagine the energy, guts, stamina and will it takes to achieve such a project, yet I suppose it requires A LOT of it - which you've obviously got!
    Inspiring and truly remarkable!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow! I'm impressed! What impresses me, is your ability to the possibilities before you got the project going. Really nice work!

    If I ever (again) need to transform a place myself, I'd definitely be ready to pay you to help me find the ideas and get a hold of the structures!

    Best regards

  23. I should be an architect WOW! So amazed with Your work done with the house :) I love the red and gold coulours in the bathroom but the sink would change for something different like this: Kraus Red Sink but I rather would put it on a white shelf to make some contrast :) I think I will star over my education and start studying the architecture with decoration :D Thanks for your post :) best Regards

  25. I like what you did with the bathroom. For a second I thought there were two toilets, but it was just the reflection. toilets edmonton

  26. This is so cool! I lived in Crystal Palace for several years. My boyfriend and I would sit at the cafe near these flats nearly every weekend. When we finally figured out that they were flats, we were dying to know what they looked like inside. We finally have an answer!

  27. Some of these are pretty cool. If would respect the list more if it weren’t so mac centric however. Nice list either way… more info visit "Barcelona Corporate Flats "
