Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Archway Studios is a 1620 sq. ft. home and workspace occupying part of a rail viaduct; a vaulted open plan floor space linked to a three-storey atrium with adjoining private rooms. The design works with the contrast between the compressed, cavernous qualities of the arch – and the slender, ecclesial spaces of the atrium and outer rooms.
The building encapsulates light and lofty interiors that scoop plenty of daylight, so the building is flooded with natural light. A weathered steel outer shell provides acoustic control, privacy and introspection, while maintaining connections with the surroundings.
In front of the arch, the building has three storeys, which accommodate two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a study, while beneath is a large living space with a five-metre-high vaulted ceiling.
The building’s unique design and appearance helps it to stand out even when dwarfed by inner-city neighbours. As a result, the property won the prestigious ‘House of the Year’ in 2013 at the New London Architecture Awards, as well as being featured in Tatler, Vogue and many other publications.
Here’s what others have to say:

Tatler 2015:
“…you find a Narnia-like door, on its own in a brick wall… Once inside, it’s as if you’ve gone through the back of the wardrobe and into a world of light and brightness. Architect Didier Ryan is little short of a genius. In what was once a damp cavern, he has created a warm and luxurious home where you can barely hear the trains shuttling to Brighton overhead. This is the first of London’s railway arches to have been turned into a home.”

Vogue 2016:
“…amazingly, this is the first Railway arch to have been turned into a home. No wonder it was named Home of the Year in the 2013 New London Awards.
At the open end, he built a protruding full-height extension that, through undulations and cleverly positioned windows, captures daylight and reflects it back into the room.”

Evening Standard:
“Underneath the arches - How a railway arch became part of a fabulous 1620 sq. ft. steel-clad home in Southwark.
Inside, the main living space is open- plan with areas being used as both live and work space or divided with furniture partitions. The white, minimalist interiors help reflect more light into the arch, and a spiral staircase, which rises to two floors is made from folded steel and wood and forms a dramatic feature.”

Location:
Dartford Street is located just off John Ruskin Street near the north end of Camberwell Road. The property is close to Walworth Road and Elephant & Castle, which has an array of shops and great transport links into the City and West End. The beautiful green spaces of Kennington Park and Burgess Park (with its tennis club and Saturday Parkrun), are only a short walk away. In addition, there are several independent cafes nearby.

Directions:
Kennington Station (Northern Line – both branches) is approximately 0.6 miles away. Elephant & Castle Stations (Overground, Northern & Bakerloo Line) are approximately 0.8 miles away. Oval Station is also approximately 0.9 miles away. The surrounding area is also well served by a frequent bus service into The City, West End and beyond.
