This project by Virginia Kerridge Architects involved the creative adaptation of a rendered brick industrial warehouse building to a family home. The original building was built in the 1900s, and had formerly been used as a furniture warehouse and before that, the “Oh Boy Candy Company” warehouse. The heart of the design is the central garden, which is visible from most areas of the house, which bathes the house in natural light, ventilation and delivers a green belt softening the industrial edge . The garden areas orient and inform the house, providing framed views from each room and a sense of place and belonging, making the building work as a whole. My favorite aspect is the strong connection the new build has with the original building which is something that can be easily lost in warehouse conversions. The rawness and simplicity of materials selection are a match made in heaven.
