Tour a Contemporary London Loft in a Victorian School Building
Ross Targett had a gem on his hands. His loft-style apartment in a converted Victorian school building featured charming period details and a location in a prime London neighborhood. But the late-1990s conversion had created a look and layout that didn’t quite fit his lifestyle. Looking to update the space with a more contemporary Japandi style with clean lines and a generous balance of white and wood finishes, Targett searched Houzz for an interior design firm.
He found Akiva Projects and worked with the firm to refresh the interiors and rejigger the floor plan. They added a little more privacy to a mezzanine level while maintaining the open and airy atmosphere and preserving historic details such as the glazed brick tile in the main living area.
