7 stunning warehouse conversions with original features

By Sophia Wood-Burgess

View latest articles


There’s good reason Londoners love a warehouse conversion. It’s not just the fact that the industrial look – exposed brick and beams – is a trendy look, and that it has heaps of character to set your home apart. Factory conversions are also often in great locations. They have big windows, high ceilings and open-plan designs. Architects can get creative with the space, so unique, quirky interiors are found quite often in conversions.

We picked a few converted factories on the market right now that have a real wow factor. Great features, a bit of history, and they’re for sale or to let in a large price range. See which one speaks to you:

London Bridge

A gorgeous 6th floor penthouse with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the skyline. This apartment has made exceptional use of its large space with beautiful built-in storage. This remarkable conversion is housed in a former Hartley's Jam factory. Stairs lead to the roof terrace, for gorgeous 360 views.

Wapping High Street

Apartment to let | 4 bedroom | £1,500 pw

Ivory House is the only original warehouse building still in Katherine's Docks. It was historically used to carry the finest luxury goods into London - perfume, shells, wine, etc. Now it has been turned into exceptional luxury apartments, including this 4 bed apartment full of character. Great use of original brick and beams, and a glamorous waterfront balcony view.

Canary Wharf

In a Grade I listed building which once held sugar, tea and rum imported from the West Indies, this apartment's historical brickwork and timber beams give it loads of character. It has a lovely private balcony overlooking the North Dock, two spacious bedrooms and a modern kitchen.

There are a few properties available in another gorgeous Grade I listed converted warehouse.
