My design London: Jules Wright, Director of the Wapping Project

Jules Wright tells Katie Law why she has never cooked a meal at home, keeps bees on her roof and prefers rain to sunshine on her days off. She also reveals her daily ritual for collecting her thoughts.

WHERE I LIVE I live in a one-bedroom apartment in Bankside, next to Tate with amazing views. I originally bought it off-plan in 1998 as a buy-to-let and lived in Wapping. But that was too close to work and I found that I never crossed the Thames. So in 2003, I moved into it and now I like to walk everywhere as it's in the centre of the city, which I love, so it really suits me. MY SECRET SHOP It's not exactly a secret, but I find The Republic of Fritz Hansen an irresistible shop. I love the whole period of the Fifties and have lots and lots of Scandinavian stuff, so this shop has all the kind of furniture I like best (fritzhansen.com). MOST INTERESTING NEW DESIGNER Am I allowed to have architects? If so it would be 6a Architects. They did the extension to the South London Gallery very beautifully and also converted the London house of some friends of mine very elegantly; it's all timber-lined, white-painted and Scandinavian in feel (6a.co.uk).
