Real Homes: Victorian Laundry Conversion

Posted on Aug 5, 2016 by

This week our search for inspiring industrial interiors takes us to a former Victorian laundry in South London. Originally converted in 1994, the late 19th century building was again reimagined by architect Dingle Price in 2012.

Rich with natural light,’House for a Painter’ features raw and whitewash timbers with a minimal aesthetic punctuated by colour, texture and tone. Furnishings, though sparse are a curated and eclectic mix of modernist and industrial styles complemented by a selection of the owner’s works.

Retaining the original mezzanine, the interior was divided into split level living quarters on one side and a double height studio on the other. Architect Dingle Price describes the conversion as having inserted a two story house within the existing space.
