2 Bedroom Apartment To Let
Architect William White’s reimagined first floor, two-bedroom loft apartment in a former warehouse conversion dating back to the 1880’s.
Before becoming an apartment, this distinctive warehouse was commandeered by a bank, its prime position on Shoreditch High Street with its unusual eye-catching arched windows makes it an obvious choice. The size and shape of the windows in this warehouse suggests it was originally used as a furniture showroom to entice customers to come in and view. What worked for the warehouse and the bank still works today.
Unlike the other four apartments in the building this has the sole benefit of the three iconic arches, which provide the focal point to the expansive open plan living area. Due to their size and exposure the windows are privacy filmed to enable an occupant to look out but not, looked onto.
Thanks to the bank, the apartment is not only secure but soundproofed throughout. The lack of noise within the home is remarkable.
The Open plan living area has an unexpected curved wall that softens the space, whilst a bank of seamless cupboards line another wall, careful not to interrupt the vast space. The kitchen is an eclectic mix of macassar lacquered units, stainless steel, and Corian. A utility room is hidden off this, again thoughtfully designed not to infringe on the space whilst enabling practicality and additional storage.
The two bedrooms have the more archetypal crittall windows and are situated towards the rear of the building with access out on to the terrace.
The two bathrooms could not be more different, one large with original windows and generous bathtub the other, an explosion of colour. Pop art yellow tiles encompass the shower room adding a sense of fun.
If you are looking for the quintessential warehouse experience, look no further. This social home in the heart of Shoreditch is bursting with life and character and will evoke a sense of creativity in even the dullest bank manager.
