The Sausage Factory is a onetime commercial property, where they used to do exactly as the name suggests. Make Sausages.
Stark have been appointed on a negotiated basis for the works required to convert this building from its previous use to a luxury residence in Rotherhithe as a speculative development, aimed at the upper end of the market.
To that end the property has been designed with luxury kitchens and bathrooms, a large Jacuzzi, Sauna and Steam room. It features the latest home automation technology, linking whole house audio visual systems, lighting systems, air conditioning, and security and surveillance systems, all controlled by Ipads set in recessed docking stations in various locations.
Of particular note are the audio visual systems, with the a home cinema on the ground floor, which will surpass standards previously set in home cinemas by a considerable margin. The whole room is completely soundproofed to prevent noise pollution from reaching the rest of the house, or indeed the neighbours. The system will link all audio and video sources to all other areas of the house for total flexibility.
The finishes selected are of the highest standard, with bespoke kitchens being installed, the use of marble floors throughout the property, and the property is completely air conditioned.
In order to install many of the finishes, substantial structural alteration is required, with the middle floor being completely removed and replaced to bear the weight of the Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, and of course the Marble flooring.
The top floor comprises a fully glazed box which houses the living room, and this required substantial amounts of remedial work to the Reglit Glazing panels, plus the insertion of large clear panels of glass and a large bi fold door to the feature roof terrace.
