Today’s homify story celebrates the aesthetic architectural design accomplished by the architects from the Homerton based firm Collective Works. Converting & refurbishing old buildings dating back to the late 1800s, the expert professionals created contemporary spaces with a special emphasis on preserving re-usable elements, simultaneously focusing on making the redesign cost-effective.
