The Blurb

Located in a secluded and quiet mews street, off Bethnal Green Road, a short walk from the Shoreditch High Street, this new development consisting of four terrace houses- delivers a truly unique space with an extraordinary selection of materials.

Each house is configured around a beautifully crafted stairwell cladded in dark Anthracite zinc panels and floating metal staircase as a centrepiece; day lit by a glass lantern.

Split levels and carefully positioned windows ensure the interior is flooded with an abundance of natural light.

Arranged across three-storeys, each level offers very unique and highly sculpted spaces, rich in materials and textures.

Located on a Lower Ground Level the two bedrooms offer a quiet aesthetic, with bespoke cabinetry and chic monolithic terrazzo stone bathrooms.

The Upper Ground floor is comprised of a Kitchen/Dining and Living room flanking the central staircase with large internal Crittall-style screens providing an extended view across the footprint of the house.

Chapel-like double-volume sculpted white-oak clad ceilings, with feature lighting, heightens the drama and spatial experience.

A carefully selected palette of materials include Shou sugi ban charred timber panelling, black lava kitchens furniture, exposed brick and terrazzo stone against the white oak clad wrapped around interiors.

The Study-Guest Bedroom is located on the top floor and offers a quiet hideaway whilst beautifully lit from a glass lantern.

Each house offers plenty of amenity spaces. The north-facing semi-outdoor balcony that extends from the Lounge area offers a charming view onto a peaceful mews.

The Upper floor balcony is south facing and located on the flat roof parapet overlooking a common courtyard.
