THE FACTORY N1
Information about The Factory, Nile Street, London N1
Named after Andy Warhol’s notorious New York loft studio, The Factory is a renowned residential development located on Nile Street N1.
The former Edwardian print-works was converted into apartments in 1998-1999 by Manhattan Loft Corporation, a well-known developer in the industry, and was one of the first developments in Shoreditch sold as shell apartments. It quickly became an emblem for London loft-living and the design revolution that transformed this part of the city. The Factory features 50 iconic loft apartments, including 13 rooftop penthouses, each individually designed and furnished to offer a unique living experience.
The building, originally an Edwardian print works, is a classic example of the industrial-to-residential conversions that transformed the area and has become a symbol of London's loft-living culture. The apartments in The Factory boast spacious living areas with high ceilings, large windows, and loading doors that let in ample natural light, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The kitchens are open plan, and the hallway features full-length storage cupboards that lead to the large open space.
