While studios may not always be our first choice of accommodation, this home on London's north bank is changing our minds. The former warehouse has had a buzzy redesign from New Yorker Matt Grzywinksi. The result is an olive-green room with 50s-style kitchen cabinets and a big, comfy king-size bed. Mornings start with coffee by the windows – which look out over the famous Southbank and river Thames – before exploring the city. Soho and East London are within equal distance, and it's just a quick stroll over to the Globe Theatre. When you come back, the home's lobby is a seriously cool spot to unwind, with its Shoreditch-style space, from the leafy plants to the metal columns. There is also a basement gym if you want to pump iron before dinner, whether that be in the small kitchen or at one of the nearby renowned restaurants.
