Even the most devout minimalists may have to make an exception for this delightfully overstuffed 2-bed, 1-bath duplex loft in a secluded mews in the British capital's Islington neighborhood. Designed by local studio 6a Architects in collaboration with the place's current owner, an art collector, this sunny pad sports beamed ceilings, original warehouse doors, and a (very) open floor plan, where living and dining rooms and a top-of-the-line kitchen flow seamlessly from one to the other. Behind all the wonderful bric-a-brac in the loft as it stands now—including midcentury furnishings galore, house plants of all shapes and sizes, and a medina's worth of rugs, throws, and pillows—is a rugged, light-filled space, a tabula rasa of rugged concrete. Kitchen countertops, floors, and what few walls there are all made of the material. Under-floor heating, solar panels, and and an air-source heat pump are also all on offer, and up the loft's green quotient. A metal corkscrew staircase leads from the kitchen to a corrugated-glass pavilion and potted plant-dotted roof terrace with city views.
