Description Change this

Dirty House is a black-painted art studio and apartment building in Shoreditch with a brightly illuminated roof designed by Adjaye Associates in 2002.

The building is a 1930's warehouse which has been converted to a private residence. The original windows on the ground floor appear to be sealed up but are actually a flush mirrored glass to ensure privacy. While on the top floor a parapet wall conceals the windows for the apartment.

The architect removed interior columns and the first level of the store to create a double height volume for the artists. The chosen materials were industrial, including concrete worktops in the kitchen.
