Chris Dyson Architects transformed a Victorian warehouse into a contemporary residence in the Shoreditch neighborhood of London, England.

The architects retained several of the "warehouse" features, such as concrete floors and painted brick walls, giving the finished residence an industrial aesthetic. Inside, the space has been decorated with baroque furniture, as well as more modern offerings, creating a unique mix. The Shoreditch residence is, ultimately, a great balancing act, offering sleek modernity and antiquated qualities within the same space.

An internal courtyard offers the homeowners a place of tranquility and calm in which they can escape the fast-paced lifestyle of London. Again, this shows the home's extreme versatility and functionality in both its design and decoration.
