When a converted home doesn't get it right the first time, a do-over might be worth it. Check out, for instance, this 2,443-square-foot former warehouse in London: though the property was already converted into a residence, the current owner brought in local firm Sadie Snelson Architects to open it up from a cluster of partitioned spaces into a well-lit, double-height, live-work dream.
The result, featuring a large steel mezzanine—with a steel balustrade and folded steel staircase—overlooking soaring steel-framed windows, is a sophisticated show-stopper. The cast-concrete kitchen counters and island, designed by the firm and built by the client, are pretty rad, too.
