Woman turns abandoned public restroom into luxury home

Woman turns abandoned public restroom into luxury home

Laura Clark is an architect based in England. In 2005, Laura graduated from Glasgow School of Art and then moved to London to work. One day, while walking around the city, a woman accidentally stumbled upon an old and abandoned public toilet. Of course, not everyone is impressed by a room of this format, but ideas and options began to appear in Laura’s head, what can be done from all this.

Today we will tell you about a very purposeful girl who did something incredible and believed in her work, while the rest considered her crazy.

She bought the property. Its main feature was that it was built back in 1929, but ceased to function in 1980.

For 30 years, no one has entered these places, and it was visible to the naked eye: everywhere there is garbage, ruins and walls cracking at the seams.

At first, Laura wanted to turn this room into some kind of small cinema or bar, but even after three years she could not get permission for this. From an unsightly room, she decided to make an apartment. Your dream apartment.

She did most of the work herself: demolition of partitions, erection of new ones, installation of electrical wiring, painting of walls, etc.

The premises were bought by her in 2011, work was carried out for five long years, and in 2016 the dream became a reality.

And this is the kitchen.

Is it possible to believe that there used to be a public toilet here? This is the living room!


The bedroom is good, you can not argue here.


The entrance to Laura’s new apartment looks pretty good. Neat, modern, and even in the spirit of the surrounding architecture. So you won’t immediately guess that this door leads to someone’s home.
