Architect: North Architects
Having undergone a dramatic re-imagining by North Architects, this dynamic two-bedroom apartment is positioned on the first floor of a well-presented Victorian school conversion located on Pages Walk at the southern end of Tower Bridge Road.
The principle behind the design was to maximise the living space by fulfilling the potential of the double-height proportions of the former school, whilst creating more intimate bedroom spaces. The scheme aimed to maintain the original fabric of the building in combination with relevant modern materials, including exposed brick walls, towering sash windows and parquet floors.
The bedrooms sit above the main living space and both contain an exterior window and internal Crittall glazing that looks over the dining area below. The master bedroom is positioned next to the shower room, which is shared by the second bedroom. There is an abundance of storage space in the second bedroom in the form of a large walk-in storage cupboard.
Downstairs, there is a separate kitchen that can be closed from the main space using Crittall double doors, and a large bathroom.
The School House is surrounded by communal gardens that are segregated into enticing areas. Each apartment is allocated a parking space in the secure car park, accessed via electric gates.
The School House can be found in a quiet site on Pages Walk, a no-through road located between Tower Bridge Road and The Old Kent Road. It is within walking distance of both London Bridge, Borough and Elephant and Castle stations, for access to the Underground and rail services to the south east. The ever-evolving Borough market, Maltby Street market and popular Flat Iron Square have exceedingly good options for food and drink, whilst Bermondsey Street has an increasingly vibrant scene, now home to a number of established design practices.
