Public toilets turned into architect’s dream home


Well, your initial thought might be what I was thinking too. No matter how cool this house is going to look, I am not sure if I could ever live in what was once a public restroom. But London-based architect Laura Clark went for it and after long legal battles bought the old restroom from the local council, and revamped the space into her dream home.

The place before. Now there are some original features you might want to get rid of instead of preserving……

The place after. I am beginning to see what she was thinking

The garden is where the stairs to the ladies restrooms were. The entry to the men’s is now her front door.

The flat has no windows, only roof lights. But it still seems bright and airy. I really hope she managed to get rid of any lingering odour though. All in all I am impressed with her pezzaz, or chutzpah if you will, but am not sure I would call it worth it. To be honest, I find the decor a bit dull.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick’s house on the market


Sarah Jessica Parker and her lovely husband Matthew Broderick (or Ferris for friends) have done quite the house flip. They put down $18.995 million for a Greenwich Village Redstone townhouse and now put it back on the market for $24.995 million. That is quite the increase and would make for a lovely profit to enhance their already comfortable means…. There’s some debate as to what exactly they did with the place as even the art in the pictures is the same from an original listing back in 2009, but it sure looks nice enough to me!

The floor plans show that there are 7 bedrooms, including one in the garden room right by the kitchen. Great for a maid or au-pair! 5 full, and 3 half baths make for enough to not to worry about standing in line in the morning. The kitchen looks great. But the two back bedrooms on the third floor look odd to say the least. The entire fourth floor is reserved for the master bed, bath and his-n-hers walk in wardrobes.
