In 2004, British architect and rumored Obama library designer David Adjaye converted an old three-story brick warehouse in London into a glassy five-story home, adding another bit of design cred to Clerkenwell, a neighborhood increasingly known for its concentration of architectural practices and high-end furniture showrooms, not to mention the annual Clerkenwell Design Week. The centerpiece of the 2,781-square-foot abode, which now can be had for $6.14M, is a huge cantilevered glazed extension that overlooks a church and its gardens.

The lower levels contain a double-height entrance, study, and library on a steel gantry. From there, angled wooden staircases lead up to three open-plan upper floors with plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows, a master bedroom with a freestanding bath, and a spacious dressing room. At the topmost level, a kitchen and dining area feature sandblasted glass windows, which let in soft diffused light and give the home its name, the Fog House.
