‘Subtraction was truly addition when it came to the living room,’ Martin says. By removing the plasterboard from the ceiling, he exposed the original ducts and pipework and replaced a black granite fireplace surround with a hot-rolled steel floor-to-ceiling design as the former was too shiny for the subdued look of the new interior. Hot-rolled steel has a rough texture and a grey finish with random highlights ranging from blue to purple, while cold-rolled steel has a smooth texture with a solid grey finish.

A bar made of oak veneer has been fitted in an alcove on the other side of one of the built-in bookcases in the living room. The concrete-topped, steel-base dining table on wheels is a new design, but it appears as if it could have come straight off the building’s original factory floor.
