Houzz TV: Tour a Modern Loft Apartment in an Old Victorian School
Ross Targett had a gem on his hands. His loft-style apartment in a converted Victorian school building featured charming period details and a location in a prime London neighbourhood. But the late-1990s conversion had created a look and layout that didn’t quite fit his lifestyle.
Looking to update the space with a more contemporary, Japandi style – think clean lines and a generous balance of white and wood finishes – Ross searched Houzz for an interior design firm.
He found Ivana De Felice of Akiva Projects and worked with her to refresh the interiors and rejig the floor plan. They added a little more privacy to a mezzanine level while maintaining the open and airy atmosphere, and preserved historical details, such as the glazed brick tiles in the main living area.
