Victorian Post Office Conversion
Situated in a converted Victorian Postal office in central London, interior and architectural design studio 1508 London have created this imposing apartment for an art collector. A clear and legible partition has been derived where strong, orthogonal volumes of accommodation are inserted with the pre-existing, near triangular, double-height space to create playful and intelligent inter-relationships. The raw, natural material palette further express the formal rationale and, by referencing the owner’s taste for Russian political art, creates a dramatic backdrop to the same. Each material has been carefully selected and crafted to provide depth, texture and richness.
The result is a impactful yet warm interior within which the owner can entertain, relax and display large and impressive pieces of art harmoniously.
