London-based property developer Mount Anvil’s new luxury collection of refurbished and new build apartments and townhouses pay homage to a rich site history and vibrant local community. The stunning refurbished and new build one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments and three and four-bedroom townhouses can be found in Highbury Park, London, England.
The Loxfords is a design-led, residential project. The properties has been sensitively developed with the history of the site and the character of the community providing influence and inspiration for the design. From the meticulous preservation of historical exterior detail to the specifications of the interior appliances.
The luxury London properties take a rich history and classic architectural icon respectfully into the future. Set around a beautiful landscaped garden, the 82 new luxury homes encompass a 19th-century building converted into art deco style called Loxford House. The site served as the home of Action for Children since 1926.
To achieve a contemporary take on the Edwardian architecture of the location and emulate
surrounding properties, yellow London brick – laid in an old fashioned ‘Flemish Bond’ pattern – has been used and the impressive full-height period doorways and windows have been carefully restored and enhanced.
On the inside, design-led, stylish Islington living is on offer, mixing charming period features such as the original brass-handled stairways and high ceilings with the unashamedly contemporary. These new homes have been designed and built to the highest specifications and feature a fabulous range of Siemens appliances, pristine white Corian worktops and wine fridges. The bathrooms are sleek and include double-ended baths and Corian vanity units and seamless storage solutions are provided through the fully fitted wardrobes incorporated into every bedroom. An impressive concierge in an art-deco style welcomes residents and visitors.
Finally, the meticulously crafted gardens will provide a stunning setting for the development, and Mount Anvil worked with the existing topography of the site to retain the trees, many of which are protected. The area behind the properties has also been opened up to create a fully accessible park, enabling a taste of village living a stone’s throw from Central London.

Dutch architectural practice Leijh, Kappelhof, Seckel, van den Dobbelsteen Architecten have completed the God’s Loftstory project. The converted church can be found in the village of Haarlo, The Netherlands.
According to the architects: “The former Dutch Reformed Evangelism Building in Haarlo has been transformed into a unique loft. The starting point for the design were the retained (mostly with a need for restoration) qualities of the 1928 dating monument, the façade, the bell tower with clock, the volume, the iconic location on the outskirts of the village and nice details like the wooden roof construction, the old panel doors and arch windows with stained glass. This project demonstrates that a transformation of a church with limited resources is possible, when using a smart design and an efficient plan. The concept was; strip, isolate and furnish. The result represents the motto of the owners: “Cherish your inner child; remain pure, playing, exploring and a little bit naughty!”
“It was a conscious choice, not to fill the space completely with as many rooms as possible, but to minimise the demands, in order to retain the spaciousness of the building. The only architectural additions are the mezzanine for the relaxation room and the multifunctional ‘stairway to have fun’. The materials used are pure, sober, functional and budgetary; concrete on the floor, the original wooden floorboards off the church as cladding for the ‘stairway to have fun’, stainless steel kitchen elements, a hard glass partition to retain openness, white stucco and strategically chosen red accents.
“This converted church shows great passion, humor, respect, love and creativity. This is being reflected in the, specially for this project realized, elements like the swing ‘swinging sister’, the ‘KROONluchter’ (inspired by the original organ), the ‘gate of heaven’ flanked by a wall of guardian angels, the ‘stairway to have fun, the ‘holy shit’ on the toilet, birdhouses with lamp for strange birds that have seen the light and the wooden ‘lost sheep’ in the garden.
