Lee Broom's South London Flat Exemplifies His Design Vision

Broom claims to be a “terrible cook,” so the kitchen is sparse and clinical. Beside the 1950’s industrial German railway clock is an arched window, formerly the fire station’s front doors; the designer’s marble and lead-crystal Chamber lights hang over the island. Photography by Luke Hayes.

The guest bathroom, with prison-issue stainless-steel toilet, is completely mirrored. “People either love it or hate it,” says Broom. Photography by Luke Hayes.

All rooms connect to the central atrium, a half-flight below the ground-floor living room (the bedrooms and the cinema are in the basement level). The leather jacket on the wall belonged to Keith Haring and features his artwork. The Hanging Hoop chair in brushed brass-plated steel was designed for the space. Photography by Luke Hayes.
