Losing it over lofts
Our favourite factory and warehouse conversions in London.
There are some remarkable places to live all over London, hewn from the city’s industrial past. We get asked by so many people to recommended buildings, particularly because lovers of lofts are far more concerned with the apartment than the postcode, meaning they’re often not as versed with individual locations in the way that buyers in the conventional property market are.
One of the many great things about lofts is the community they breed among people who don’t even know each other, but who share a passion for cool and casual opened-up spaces: former pet food canning plants, jam factories, grain warehouses and seal tanneries conjure emotions you just don’t get in semi-detached world.
So we’ve started documenting loft buildings as both an aid to anyone looking for a loft in London and as a straightforward and self-indulgent fan site for us and other loft enthusiasts. Ultimately, we hope to make londonloftaparttments.co.uk the definitive guide to finding and living in a loft in London.
