From tram shed to luxury home – a transformation in pictures


If there is one thing the UK knows how to do it’s warehouse conversion, however this recent development in London is a whole new level of creativity and style.

The transformation of the Tramways House, a large warehouse conversion in a former tram shed, was recently featured in The Guardian. The The property is located on a quiet street in lower Holloway, North London, and would attract much attention from the outside.

The inside, however, is a whole different story. From a glass roof that spans the length of the room to staggered floors, the property features little quirks throughout.

Overall, the property comes with five bedrooms of varying sizes which are all connected via the industrial staircase that leads to all upper and lower levels as well as the galleried hall.

The ground floor features the master bedroom suite as well as another en suite bedroom. A third bedroom and separate bathroom can be found on the first floor. Another two bedrooms with bathrooms and an open study are located on the lower ground floor, which are all arranged a second living area arranged within a double-height void, letting in heaps of light from rows of street-level windows.

The property’s only outside space, a sun terrace, can be accessed via some steps at the far end of the second floor living and dining room.

The property also comes with an integrated garage and can currently be bought for £3.5m via The Modern House.
