    I’m generally a believer in less is more, but this warehouse conversion by ése Studio Architects of Athens, is teaching me a thing or two. This part office, part apartment space is a texture and pattern mash-up party and everyone’s invited.

    The existing bones of the warehouse provide a richly textured and sculptural ceiling. The architects added to that a Japanese shoji screen, patterned flooring, rendered walls, steel and sandblasted glass partitions, a mosaic island bench and a range of vertical screens in varying colours and geometric patterns. Despite every surface being different, the materials sit together cohesively and the diverse palette is expressed with a surprising degree of subtlety.

    The result is a space with warmth and life. It feels designed and considered but as if it has grown organically over time. Add to that a killer collection of furniture and lighting (is anyone detecting a slight Patricia Urquiola obsession?) and it’s a winner in my book. Bonus points for the design lesson.
