I’ve written about this amazing block of buildings in London several times before, most recently in September, here and also here. I am just enchanted with the St. Paul’s Studios, a block of former artists studios with gorgeous double height windows, and look forward to seeing them when I am back in the UK next month. One of these was recently featured in The Guardian (UK) with some interior images. The houses were designed for bachelor artists by Frederick Wheeler, and provide enormous amounts of natural light, a necessity for artists. Over the years, fewer artists live in them, and the six-lane road outside has become the main artery to and from Heathrow Airport, and on to the M4, a major east-west highway. Unfortunately, there’s also a tube station in the rear.This end-of-group unit had been owned for 40 years by an American, and prior to that, it had been sub-divided into apartments. The couple kept a mezzanine or loft that had been added and made the huge studio room their master bedroom. The wallpapers are by the owner’s niece, the designer, Neisha Crosland. Regardless of anything and everything, I’d still take one of these terrific buildings in a heartbeat!
