Unfolding over three storeys, this 1,287 sq ft (119 sq m) live-work house in Bow is the perfect solution for a home to work from. Large windows, skylights, open spaces and a mezzanine all contribute to the breezy sense of flow in a sociable courtyard setting.

Stretching the entire length of the house, the main live-work space has large windows at either end including French doors opening directly onto the residents courtyard.

The room is ideal as a bright creative studio or a striking contemporary living space with glossy white floorboards underfoot and wall-mounted lightboxes.

At the back of the ground floor, the open-plan kitchen in gun-metal grey runs along a single wall with an island breakfast bar opposite.

On the first floor you’ll find the bathroom along with two double bedrooms, one of which has a double height dramatic column window reaching to the ceiling.


At the top of the house, the mezzanine makes a fine office space or guest room with a large skylight in the eaves.

Old Library Court, a modern addition to a period building, is close to Bromley-by-Bow DLR station and therefore well placed for Stratford, Canary Wharf and The City.

What is a live workspace?

A live-work space combines your office and living quarters. The Internet has enabled many people to work from home, increasing the popularity of such housing. With commercial office space costs continuing to rise, it makes sense to own or rent a live-work space.
