Freehaus - Merchant Court


Refurbishment of a one-bedroom residential unit within a Wapping warehouse, providing an additional bedroom whilst celebrating the building's neglected historic features.






Once a working wharf in Wapping, Merchant Court was originally converted for residential use in 1996. A ubiquitous one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit with low ceilings and a lack of historic expression, the project entailed the full strip out and refurbishment of the premises to provide two bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Freehaus, provided full design services, licencing negotiations, building control submissions, tender negotiations, contract administration and site supervision. The real success however, lies in the redefinition of space. Every last millimetre of this floor plate has been utilised and given purpose.

The original brickwork, iron columns and ceiling joists have been exposed to acknowledge the buildings origins whist improving acoustic separation, floor to ceiling heights and natural daylight throughout.

Some bespoke finishes completed the transformation on a shoestring; feature lighting, TV consoles and kitchen cabinetry were all crafted by Freehaus.
