Once home to local favourite Cagney’s nightclub, Wornington Road’s expansive lateral space has been expertly transformed by Emulsion Architecture for modern-day city dwelling. The North Kensington property addresses its urban streetscape with an inky brick and galvanized steel façade, punctuated by large panels of glazing. Inside this three-bedroom home for sale, an industrial palette is softened by convivial living spaces and carefully-integrated light channels.
An open-plan kitchen and reception room occupies the entire first floor, with blonde wood floors and whitewashed walls welcoming interior creativity. A large glass roof, positioned over the kitchen island, illuminates the spacious proportions. When nights draw in, a warm glow is cast from linear track lighting – neatly engineered between the ceiling beams. The kitchen is marked by a wall of exposed black brickwork, offset by smooth marble worktops. Floor-to-ceiling glass frames a striking steel staircase, which ascends to the private roof terrace. Constructed as a metal box that sits above home, it’s a space reinforced by its metropolitan surrounds. From here, spot Ernö Goldfinger’s feat of Brutalist architecture, the iconic Trellick Tower.
A second steel staircase – constructed in a dramatic spiral formation – descends to an atrium flanked by full-height glazing, inviting reams of natural light into the home’s subterranean level. Once a hub of music and dancing, the reception room persists in its suitability for socialising. There’s a relaxed feel to the brushed plaster walls and a spacious footprint that can be delineated into cosy television, dining and reading zones. At one end of the room, bench seating is deftly carved into a bookshelf. The principal bedroom is a soothing space, complete with a dedicated dressing area and en suite bathroom. Its pared-back tones are enlivened with full-height tangerine curtains, framing French windows that open to the courtyard garden. It’s a quiet suntrap spot, with verdant climbing planters backdropped by graphite-toned brickwork and panels of clean-line glass. Just like the principal suite, one of the guest bedrooms enjoys direct access to the courtyard; the other guest bedroom is finished with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes. A Jack and Jill bathroom sits between the two rooms, whist a second family-sized bathroom is located off the reception room.
