The refurbished mid-1800s former factory draws inspiration from Brick Lane’s heritage. Five floors of flexible workspace offer purpose-built co-working areas, a residents’ lounge, kitchens, event space and outdoor terraces. A void cut through the building contains a sculptural suspended staircase in oxide-red, while a terrazzo-lined event space/lobby is visible from the street. A voluminous two-storey loft extension and ‘pleated’ roof space with glazed north lights recalls the area’s historic weaving lofts, with a further reference to its textile-making past provided by the felt interior panelling.
