Shaking up suburbia with Hengrave

‘Hengrave’ is one of the beautiful homes hand-picked by our team to be exclusively represented by jj Locations. Striking a chord with the creative industry’s demand for visually arresting and bespoke modern properties, Hengrave introduces industrial elements such as poured concrete, substantial expanses of glass and edgy angles to a softer, domestic setting.

The property is located on a quiet street in suburban south east London, a few paces away from Honor Oak Overground station. From the front the house is like many ’30s/’40s builds propping up the sprawl of London. However, step inside and anyone with an eye for photography, or an appreciation of how to win at converting an ‘everyday’ home, will realise that this shoot location is special.

Dixcot: jj’s Arts & Crafts country residence… in London!

Exclusive to jj Locations, ‘Dixcot’, a substantial location house in London’s Streatham, is both a family home and a living example of the Arts and Crafts movement, a counter-movement of ideas and design that flourished in Britain from the 1880s to early 20th Century. Multi-talented artists and activists John Ruskin and William Morris were the figureheads of the movement that promoted the decorative arts and craftsmanship that many felt diminished by rapid urban expansion as the Industrial Revolution continued full steam ahead towards a new century.

Stay calm and book Northwood Pastels

Northwood Pastels is a unique location house in London’s Forest Hill and is one of the unique and inspiring properties available to book for shoots with jj Locations. Anyone with an eye for interior and fashion design will have noticed the re-emergence of dusky blues, pinks and other complimentary colours currently adorning shops, fashion shoots and blogs.

It seems that everywhere you turn odes to trusty, summery pastels for SS17 are springing up. Northwood Pastels is a versatile location, not only lending its support to this latest trend – providing backdrops to this season’s passion for butterflies, mixed patterns and retro floral design – but is also a seasoned provider of an almost beach-house style situation within the handy confines of the m25.

Apethorpe Palace – jj Exclusive

The team at jj Locations would like to introduce to you to one of our most unique and substantial location houses, the historical Apethorpe Palace.

Closed to the majority of the public and any commercial ventures for many years, the former royal residence was institutionalised before coming in to the care of English Heritage. English Heritage’s involvement was the catalyst for the property’s restoration before the property passed in to private hands. The current owners are in the careful process of passionately restoring the palace, one of only two English palaces in private hands, to its former architectural splendour.
