The Winkley Workshop in Bethnal Green, London, has been restored into a charming two-bedroom home by design studio Kirkwood McCarthy. The quaint house, owned by the firm's Fiona Kirkwood and her fiance, was a former upholsterer's workshop that dates back to the Victorian era, and was built up from the original single-storey structure to three.

The new Winkley Workshop by Kirkwood McCarthy does a lot to incorporate the courtyard and makes the most of its environment with unconventionally located windows and skylights to let in natural light and ventilation when possible.

The space does well in incorporating the original brick and timber framework of the existing property and is a contemporary update that takes the space to its full potential in terms of livability.
