This comes as close as anything I've seen to explaining the wealth of studio space in new James North conversions as compared to apartment space, even though the latter would arguably be of greater value to the street's chicken-and-egg dynamic. Almost all recent residential conversions I can think of in that area are two-level residences, often occupied by the property owner.

If you caught the renovation of the London Tap House, you might also remember that stairwells were a major part of that multi-million-dollar project: custom three-storey fireproofed steel staircase columns, slipped in through the roof via crane. That's often the real cost of giving older buildings an energetic second life, and it's a cost that very few seem ready to bear.
