Wilton Way

i saw this awesome loft makeover on Food52 and i couldn’t help but share, it’s so well designed and so much thought has gone into every detail. i highly recommend reading the entire article for all the info. the flat is in Hackney, London and is pretty small: only 46m2 (500 square feet) so the owners Catherine Verna Bentley & Louis Hagen Hall (who met on Tinder???) had to be clever with storage solutions, custom cabinetry and other design ideas. they are architectural & interior designers, after all.

This 500-square-foot loft in Hackney, East London, has all the good light and airiness you’d hope for in a loft, but it isn’t an open floor plan or a structure built within one. Plus, it has secrets. The custom joinery for the walls and built-ins features an astounding attention to detail—and to the owners’ lifestyle – resulting in flexible rooms and inventive storage solutions on end. The apartment needed to somehow be many things for the couple: a studio for their work, a place to sleep and store Catherine’s wardrobe, a place to cook and entertain and have overnight guests.
