With my love of making old into new again, you can guess that I’m a huge fan of home conversion projects. I recently was reminded of this love when I caught an episode of the show You Live in What? on HGTV where they provide home conversion projects from the fabulous to the weird and wacky. Anyhow, it prompted me to find some new interesting conversion projects to feature on the blog. Today’s home is a former school gym of a Victoria-era schoolhouse turned into a unique apartment located in London, England. However, currently no one actually lives here. It’s (owned?) operated by JJ’s Location Studios and it is rented out for movies, photo shoots, events, and meetings.
I love the massively high curved ceilings and the gorgeous casement windows. This place doesn’t lack in natural light, that is for sure.
I want that wire sailboat they have on the wall! I’m also a big fan of random old-school pics of people you don’t know…something about being able to imagine stories about who they might have been.
Sadly there is no information on JJ Location’s website about who designed or photographed their conversion space. However, the interesting mix of art, function and whimsy in this space is pretty cool. Would I decorate this massive space differently? Probably, but I still enjoy the spin that has been put on it.
