Plascon House Tour: An Old Brewery Revived Into A Majestic Penthouse
We love industrial conversions where unconventional builds are beautifully transformed into habitable spaces. Today’s gorgeous retreat was once a west London brewery building. Today it is a majestic penthouse worthy of modern living.
Special finds like this one are often packed with character and interesting architectural details. In this home, open-plan levels, criss-crossed by metal beams and bolt-studded joists, hint at its past life. However, the interior has been completely renovated and beautifully renewed to suit a family.
Marie Soliman and Albin Berglund, founders of the highly revered Bergman Design House, are the design powerhouse that are making waves in London, and now the world’s luxury interior and architectural design industry. They were the team who took up the challenge to convert this space into a livable home for their own family.
The space called for a flexible design style. With so many open areas, clever design ideas needed to be incorporated to make the space feel homely and functional.
An open plan kitchen fits in seamlessly in the home. Art is easily suspended above rails to offer contrast and flow. The kitchen opens up to a large living area where high ceilings add a touch of sophistication. There is a sense of light and openness here with a few industrial touches such as exposed beams and wiring. Instead of disguising these elements, they are embraced as a part of the design style.
The bedrooms too feature a few industrial elements such as a metal frame in against the ceiling in the daughter’s bedroom. Soft, neutral colours make the space feel more soothing. A mix of textured fabrics and soft pastel tones complete the rooms. Each room feels fresh and relaxed and perfect for winding down.
A special space that adds to the appeal of this home is a roof terrace with amazing views of the city. A great outdoor retreat to enjoy London’s vistas.
