The Makers Development, located on Nile Street, is part of a new canal-side creative quarter, moments from the Shoreditch tech cluster. It is quietly tucked away from City Road between the area's vibrancy and dynamism and the financial district. Sprinkled with handsome warehouses and factories, it also attracts City professionals who like the modern apartment buildings and the ability to walk to their office.
The Makers building is a new scheme of 175 apartments within a 28-storey tower and an interconnected low-rise block. It takes its name from the area's craft working traditions, now reinvented by a hipster breed of artisan bakers, barista bars, designer florists, Pilates studios, and interior design boutiques. There are five studio flats, 155 two and three-bedroom apartments, and a small number of family duplexes.
An impressive exterior by Avanti Architects features two-tone concrete and perforated aluminium panels. Flats have full-height glazing, while corner apartments have double-aspect winter gardens. Family duplexes come with private roof gardens, and four penthouses have enhanced interiors, including a brass-wrapped kitchen island, herringbone flooring, and home automation.
The apartments have a modern and considered theme. The Podium apartments are bathed in an abundance natural light from the south-facing windows, and all the apartments, in both buildings, benefit from landscaped terraces, balconies, or winter gardens.
Interior finishes have been designed by the award-winning Woods Bagot and offer a nod to the sought-after Shoreditch warehouse.
Design features include:
Smoked Oak doors
Un-lacquered brass doorknobs
Oak plank flooring
Siemens and Bosch kitchen appliances
Black kitchen and bathroom fittings
