Houzz Tour: A Converted London Bakery is on the Rise
High ceilings and bags of space persuaded architect Pereen d'Avoine and her partner to see the potential in a run-down conversion
‘My partner, Matt, and I are both architects and luckily we have similar taste when it comes to interiors,’ says Pereen. ‘But we were on a really tight budget, so we decided to live in the flat for a while before starting work on it, so we could understand what we needed from the space,’ she says.
One year later, the pair applied for planning permission to put in a new window, transforming a dark corner and helping them to make the most of their living area. Completed in 2012, the crisp, well-designed space now enjoys lots of natural light and is kitted out with restrained, midcentury-style furniture that complements the bold, chequerboard floor.
