Finn Erschen Architekt

39A Belsize Lane , London , NW3 5AA , United Kingdom

The third floor of one wing of a former industrial bakery has been converted into three separate loft spaces. The artist Johanne Heuer occupies the first, the second one serves as artist-in residence accommodation and is used on a three-month basis for the purpose of a scholarship and Finn Erschen uses the third loft space. The owner has a tiny office one storey below. In order to preserve the original impression, each unit is fitted with a cement-chipboard clad cube that encloses a WC & shower, kitchen, storage and in two cases a resting niche. New steel frame double glazed windows have been added to the inside of the old industrial glazing and some of the paint/plaster has been removed from the interior exposing the brickwork, which adds to the industrial appeal. The concrete floor has under floor heating.
