This London Loft development (in New Cross to be exact) is the latest work by the Design team Chan + Eayrs whose inspiring approach to property development is a much needed breath of fresh air.
Chan + Eayrs ethos is to firmly avoid the generic property-developer approach of focusing predominantly on square-footage returns and cookie-cutter homogenous design and instead approach each project as a unique one-off project.
"As Artists, we search for our subject and canvas (our acquired sites or property), design a vision for them, and then personally shape them into unique works of Art. Art for living in".
The resulting development consists of two lofts and two studios transforming a site that consisted of a burned out garage.
Each loft and studio is accessible from a communal corridor with polished plaster walls and concrete floors.
We initially stumbled upon this development as part of research on paint effects in interiors - and the cohesive palette gives a super-serene ambience. With walls in pale pink Setting Plaster from Farrow and Ball, the ceilings Rolling Fog from Little Greene set off with lime-washed oak floors.
Chan + Eayrs design approach is extensive and completely immersive - from initial conception of the development all the way through to dressing the interiors complete with antiques. The resulting spaces feel thoughtfully conceived, carefully layered and full of character, unlike many other new-build developments out there.
The studios occupy the ground floor and share a courtyard garden. The exterior is clad in a herringbone brick pattern, similar to the developer's own home.
