Mastership Wrights

You may be wondering just what in the hell is Mastership Wrights. Well, it's a London based location home that is available through one of our favourite location agencies, Shoot Factory. Michael, one of the owners of the agency, sent us some big juicy photos of this fairly raw space for your viewing pleasure. I love a raw space - I would LOVE the chance to buy a REALLY old home like this one and start taking it apart bit by bit while living in it so you get partially removed walls, peeling wallpaper etc. It's so dramatic and edgy. (P.S. Check out Michael's blog, featuring his home renos).

Trying to find a word for this but I think you nailed it: the decaying backdrop is quite dramatic.

Oh I'm right there with you, Kim. I would also love to have a space like this with all the history and drama. It reminds me of the mottled peeling walls of the therapy room in The King's Speech, which I don't believe I'll ever get ever they were so damned beautiful.

I agree that it's stunning: but it's 'Master Shipwright's'-it is the former home of the master shipwright from the days when Deptford was a major port.

I'm not sure why, but this deconstructed sort of not quite original but certainly not restored condition stirs my design nerves, I love to see the journey that the building has taken, the scars if you will. So inspiring, when I am currently hitting a wall with the working drawings of a concrete office block assignment this section has moved me to follow the places I LOVE! Thanks

Love the kitchen! The stainless steel equipment provides a striking but fabulous contrast to the Aga stove and the original interiors.

I need to live here.

I absolutely LOVE this ... so much so that I've linked a posting to yours in my own blog (it'll go up tomorrow!) It'll be my first time linking to a post (which just goes to show you how MUCH I love it) so if you happen to check it out and I haven't done it correctly, please let me know :) Amazing feature: thanks for posting it!

so beautiful.

Is there a way to re-create the walls in the above photos? Or wallpaper that looks similar? Graham and brown have anything like that? I'm sure it's not very popular but there has to be somewhere we can purchase this raw style!

Only the passage of time can create those walls ...

The design angel in me likes it alot, the practical devil on my shoulder think brrrrrr cold!

The kitchen and the piano room are absolutely beautiful. The only I'd choose to fix is the ceiling in the kitchen. I'd make a plain gypsum ceiling and paint it white - mainly as contrast to the roughness of the room.

This is fantastic - completely different to everything else that is popping around the internet - just great.

what a spectacular space! I love this way of arranging (or rather: setting up) the space!

the staircase area, just wow. <3

I'd love to paint that kitchen ceiling a nice warm orangey-red. And the one in the piano room? A cool, careful, breezy sea green/blue. For some reason, the idea of such a striking contrast just feels so appealing to me.

...well,well,well, can i say there are many very uninspiring insects that come out of those unfinished,open slats an plaster walls?
trust me i have been living in one of these in the same stage of "lets fix it" 1880 places, and it is not as pretty as it looks in the pictures, i am most certainly drywalling over and sealing it all up. or lets just say it is for insulation purposes, we got -43C in the winter, no place to play fashion heroes.
or as locals say: different strokes for different folks?

Oh my GOD! I'm dying here! So BEAUTIFUL! I like it so much, all of it. Wonderful!!
