Architect: Tasou Associates
Positioned high above the street, atop a striking former industrial building, is this cleverly conceived contemporary two-bedroom apartment with three balconies and views over London’s east end. The original building dates back to the 1920s and was once home to the Donmar Theatre office and costume store.
Entrance is via a communal stairwell that picks its way through the original building to the fourth floor. The apartment has a small lobby area with room for shoes and coats, from which stairs ascend to the living accommodation. An exposed timber ceiling is punctured with skylights that invite light from above. An engineered-oak floor, heated underneath, runs throughout the space.
The open-plan living space is a particularly bright room containing the kitchen, dining and seating area. The kitchen island is fitted with a stainless-steel sink with bright pink Vola tap. There are balconies to the front and back of the room, accessed by glazed sliding doors.
The first of two bedrooms, currently used as a study, has views across rooftops to the south and built-in wardrobes, whilst the master bedroom has its own private west-facing balcony, a dressing area and en-suite shower room.
Cavell Street is excellently located in the heart of Whitechapel, near the bustling Commercial Road and a short walk from Shoreditch, Spitalfields and the City. Whitechapel and Aldgate East are the nearest Underground stations, for access to both the District and Hammersmith and City lines. Nearby Shadwell is on the London Overground line that runs between Highbury and Islington and Clapham Junction. The apartment will be approximately three minutes’ walk from the new Crossrail station at Whitechapel.
