Camden's slick new loft-style flats:85 new homes at Art Deco warehouse conversion overlook London's largest winter garden

An orginial Art Deco warehouse has been transformed into 85 loft-style apartments for a new generation of creatives.

An original Art Deco warehouse in Camden, now split into 85 loft-style apartments, is said to have London’s largest winter garden. The space at Carlow House is indeed vast — an internal atrium crowned by a curved-glass canopy that forms a spectacular lightwell. 

The scheme is just the latest in a fresh wave of homes aimed at a new generation of creatives coming to a speedily improving area.

Camden was attracting architects and media firms, including fashion, film, theatre, music and web design companies, long before Clerkenwell and Shoreditch became hip addresses. 

After a few years out of the spotlight the area is now on the up, partly due to a backlash against the over-corporate atmosphere of much of the City fringe. 

It’s one of the few places in London where bohemian prosperity and urban edginess happily co-exist. And there are still canalside factories, cobbled courtyards and mews ripe for transformation into new homes.

At Carlow House, gangways, glazed balconies and flats with large factory windows face on to the awesome winter garden adorned with art and exotic plants, which is also an amenity area for residents, while the smart entrance foyer features exposed brickwork and industrial light fittings.

Homes are priced from £699,999 and come with 999-year leases. Call Galliard on 020 3770 6320.
