Architect: Lea Katz
This expansive three-bedroom ground-floor apartment with live/work use occupies more than 2,000 sq ft of a former industrial building. It is favourably located on a quiet residential square at the southern end of Bermondsey Street.
Designed by architect Lea Katz, the apartment has a unique layout which centres around a central living space. Accommodation includes three versatile reception rooms, an open-plan living / dining space, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and access to a small terrace, two further bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC. There is also a functioning Jacuzzi bath which can be accessed from the master bedroom or third reception space through frosted-glass bi-fold doors.
Access to the apartment is either through a private front door, or through double doors that open onto the kitchen / dining area. The use and flow of the living space is versatile and open to interpretation.
The apartment is very light, with floor-to-ceiling frosted windows that stretch the full width of the kitchen / living space and a large skylight over one of the reception rooms. The walls are clad with non-structural exposed brickwork that reflect the building’s exterior, and the floor, although in need of repair in places, is resin with underfloor heating.
The apartment is located at the southern end of Bermondsey Street, home to a large number of independent restaurants and bars, and the White Cube gallery. It is also popular with independent design practices, many of which choose to base their offices in this vibrant area. Borough market is nearby (approximately 1 mile), and the South Bank, Tate Modern and the river are within easy walking distance.
London Bridge Station and Borough Underground are both within one mile, with access to the Northern Line (Bank branch) and the Jubilee Line.
