Laura Clark is an architect hailing from England, where she embarked on her architectural journey by graduating from the Glasgow Faculty of Art in 2005. Later, she made her way to London, and one day, while strolling through the city, her keen eye caught an abandoned, decrepit public restroom.
While most people would overlook such a place, Laura saw untapped potential and started brainstorming creative possibilities for this unlikely space.
Determined to transform it, Laura decided to purchase the property, a relic from 1929 that had been disused since 1980. It was in a state of disrepair, plagued by litter and crumbling walls.
Initially, Laura’s vision was to turn it into a small cinema or bar, but after three years of navigating bureaucratic hurdles and red tape, she couldn’t secure the necessary permissions.
Undaunted, she shifted gears and set her sights on converting the uninviting space into her dream apartment.
Taking matters into her own hands, Laura rolled up her sleeves and undertook much of the renovation herself, demolishing walls, erecting new ones, installing electrical systems, and meticulously painting every surface.
Five years of hard work later, in 2016, Laura’s vision had finally come to life, and her dream apartment was born.
Behold, a transformed kitchen!
And here, a cozy living room!
It’s truly astounding to imagine that this stunning apartment was once an abandoned public restroom.
Laura’s dedication and labor bore fruit, resulting in a one-of-a-kind dwelling. The entrance now boasts a modern aesthetic that seamlessly blends with the surrounding architecture.
