The development is surrounded by residential properties and small businesses including some light industrial businesses operating from railway arches to the rear of Newspaper House. We ensured minimal disruption during construction, which included foundation piling by the structural engineers.
Simplicity of materials
Materials and finishes were carefully considered to create a desirable destination. The mixed exterior brickwork reflects the traditional London style and the pitched metal clad roofline mirrors the light industrial element of the local vernacular. Large metal windows and doors were specified in a matte charcoal finish to match the exposed structural steel-work of the balconies and central stairwell.
Every apartment was fitted with designer kitchens by Leicht, a balcony with bleached wood decking and glass balustrades, underfloor heating, energy-efficient fixtures and high-tech appliances. The four luxurious duplexes benefit from double height living spaces and two private terraces.
