Architect: Urban Research Laboratory
Royal Oak YardSOLD
This live/work apartment is quietly situated on the third floor of the Glasshouse, just off ever-popular Bermondsey Street. Offering flexible living and working space of approximately 910 sq ft plus a small balcony, it has views of many of the City’s major landmarks, including the Shard and the Gherkin.
The interior of the flat was remodelled for an arts consultant in the late 1990s by the architecture practice Urban Research Laboratory, with a colour scheme inspired by the work of the painter Ellsworth Kelly. It featured in numerous publications shortly after it was completed, including Retro Home by Suzanne Trocmé, New Architects 2 published by the Architecture Foundation, and The Guardian’s Space magazine. It remains in its original state and now requires some cosmetic updating.
The Glasshouse is found at the end of Royal Oak Yard, which is tucked away off Bermondsey Street. The new White Cube gallery is around the corner, and there are numerous excellent restaurants and shops within walking distance. Borough Market is also within easy reach. Nearby London Bridge station offers Underground and Overground services, with convenient access to the West End and the City.
