established british industrial designer ross lovegrove has opened the doors to his central ‘powis mews’ london home which has been put on the market at £12 million (USD 18.5 million). occupying a quiet mews in north notting hill, the designer’s wife miska miller took charge in converting the former steel factory building into the four-storey home-cum-studio workspace. the light-filled property features three bedrooms, ample living space and is topped with a private roof garden.

the studio space is based on the ground and basement floors, all of which is connected by lovegrove’s DNA staircase




in stark contrast to the traditional architecture of the surrounding buildings, the utilitarian interiors have been eclectically decorated and complemented with details such as honeycombed fibreglass aircraft flooring, carbon-fiber sinks, 2.5m sliding doors – all of which reflects lovegrove’s innovative aesthetics and recognizable style seen in his work. programmatically, the studios are located on the ground floor which spill onto the street outside, while the upper floors have been organized to follow the ‘upside down’ living approach; with the bedrooms based on the central floor and the top levels dedicated to the living areas.



A ‘DNA’ spiral staircase (designed by lovegrove himself) connects the lower floors together, and simultaneously acts as unique and sculptural piece in itself. the 5,000 sq ft space currently remains as an archive showcasing details were created especially during the building’s renovation. prospective buyers can now book appointments to view the architect-designed space within the authentic cobbled mews or on the real estate website of domus nova.
