The mixed-use space comprises Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton's latest restaurant Commune Social on the ground floor and the Secret Society Bar on the second. And it's now possible to stay overnight in the third-floor 240sq m loft.
The bedroom, open-plan living space and dining room were decorated with pared-back elegance, simple white plaster walls, panoramic windows and high ceilings with exposed original wood beams and trusses. The mix of modern and vintage furnishings includes an aluminium-topped dining table by Konstantin Grcic for BD Barcelona Design, a Roll & Hill chandelier and carpets from Nanimarquina - and, in the industrial-look bathroom, a Shaker-inspired walnut shelving system designed by Neri&Hu to store toiletries and books. – Catherine Shaw
