Deep underground in London’s south east side, architect Laura Clark did something that most people would never even think about doing. She renovated a public bathroom and made the 600 square foot space her own home.

The public loo, as they are referred to across the pond, was long abandoned and Clarke took it as a personal challenge to renovate the space and make it her home. She referred to it as “micro regeneration.” The story in the Telegraph shares a bit about the history of the space and exactly how she went about her renovation.

You can see the beautiful kitchen and sitting room in the photo gallery in the post. I love her use of open shelving in the kitchen – something I prefer. Why keep all your pretty dishes and, in my case, great bar ware behind closed doors? The rest of her kitchen is streamlined and modern. Check out the slideshow here. You can also see her amazing use of outdoor space, something you don’t expect from a public toilet.
