I first moved into this 1930s
block in around 1997, right in the middle of the huge property crash -
and so got it for a bargain.
The flat had been bought and
renovated by 2 designers and when I moved in, it was very minimalist but
in fabulous condition. In around 1999 I decided to do a big revamp and
engaged a designer (Adrienne Chinn) who
The article they wrote about
the renovation can be found on their website:
The flat was covered in 2
magazines, and also featured on an Art deco association website in the
States, sue to the "modern Art Deco design and style. During the revamp
a lot of original art deco features were put back in.
We moved out of the flat at
the end of April 2004, and now rent it out to tenants.
