As you walk towards apartment 2F, the building's stairwell displays framed drawings by architects Wade & Wade showing the plans for the baths layouts.
You get a sense of how it must have felt all those years ago to arrive in the bathhouse as you walk through the rambling corridors and up the stairways that weave their way through building.
Reaching Tessa and Joe's apartment, the door opens into the main living area with its wooden floors, double height void, and windows on both levels.
From the living space, another door opens to the tiled terrace with its outdoors table and chairs.
Back inside, tucked in a sunny corner, the kitchen has stainless steel benches, with a dining nook. There's also a toilet on this level, and then the stairs to the mezzanine bedroom that looks over the living space, and has a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom.
Tessa says the apartment is for sale as they aren't using it as often as they would like. "So we have decided to invest elsewhere."
