Robin Lee Architecture has completed the fit out of 13 apartments within a former industrial building at the Piper Building estate in Fulham for Baylight.
The Piper Building was built in 1950s as a laboratory complex for The North Thames Gas Board. Located on a site set back from the River Thames in London’s borough of Fulham, the building formed a divide between the established residential areas which spread south from New Kings Road and the warehousing and light industry which had historically grown up along the river wharfs.
The development consists 15,000Ft2 of residential space across 13no. bespoke apartment units ranging from two bedroom unit to studios. Precast and insitu concrete structural elements are exposed revealing the powerful tectonic logic of the existing building. New structural elements are formed in steel and structural softwood. Bespoke joinery work elements effect loose subdivisions of space. Open plan arrangements allow the spaces to be experienced as singular complete environments. Concealed luminaries uniformly uplight the ceiling structure throughout the apartments giving further unity to the interior environments.
