Block and beam ceilings on two of the three floors at this link-detached, mixed-use freehold studio in South East London offer unrivalled opportunities in ultimate open-plan living and working. It’s something of a rarity these days to discover so much space wrapped up in a freehold package that offers a mixed frame work of options to live and work from.

Designed by Alan Camp Architects, an instrumental practice in the continued development of Elephant & Castle,
this impressive property started life in the early 90s as a live/work artist home.

The building is now more geared toward commercial activity, with the ground and top floor designated as studio premises, and the first floor as a residential dwelling. But, subject to planning, this investment could easily be restored as a single live-work home, or even turned into three separate self-contained units given private entrance to the ground floor and the cool spiral concrete staircase shared by the two upper levels.

The construction method means that pretty much every interior wall on every floor can be dispensed with to utilise all of the square footage however required. And while the exterior takes on an unashamedly modern look, the inside has a warehouse style that wouldn’t be out of place in a Victorian factory. Ceiling heights are supremely impressive, especially on the ground and top floors, marrying the open space with noticeable volume.

The ground floor is currently used as a photographic studio and has its own kitchen and bathroom, along with a small tucked-away seating area for enjoying a morning caffeine fix or a break from work. At the front, separate double doors to the parking bay allow large works/canvases to exit the building easily.

The vast openness of the top floor is complemented by the high-pitched ceiling which continues outside to cover a sizeable roof terrace overlooking the street below. The double height invites the addition of a mezzanine to add even more floor space, again subject to the usual consent. And given the original usage of the building, subject to planning, this floor would also be a show stopping living space.

The residential middle floor is another self-contained space. It’s chic and minimal, with a private terrace directly from the large open-plan dining kitchen, while the back bedroom savours an urban vista from a wall made almost entirely of windows.

A rare thing these days is off-street parking, so the added luxury of a gated space for 2-3 cars is a real bonus. That said, it’s just minutes on foot to the remarkable and ongoing transformation of Elephant & Castle (one of London’s biggest regeneration zones), as well as the lively cafe culture around the corner at Elephant Park with high end retail, bars and restaurants opening around the new town centre. Feeling like stretching the legs and venturing further? Head over to London’s South Bank and Borough for some exceptional culinary adventures.

Elephant & Castle is also a significant Zone 1 transport hub from where the Northern and Bakerloo lines criss-cross their way around London. Meanwhile, Thameslink trains drop you at Blackfriars in 5 minutes, City Thameslink in 7, and at Farringdon in the heart of the City Fridge in 9, where you can also connect with the Elizabeth Line. Or equidistant is Kennington, from here you can join both branches of the Northern Line.
