FOR sale by the building’s architects, the couple Patrick Theis and Soraya Kahn, the penthouse in this extraordinarily elegant, intelligent development in Shoreditch is a prime and prestigious choice for anyone working in the City. The building – designed to be both for working and living – has won several awards and was short-listed for the highly prestigious Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize 2010, and went on to win RIBA Building of the Year 2010.
The property also won the Hackney Council Design Awards 2010, with the judges opining that this “ingenious mixed-used development combines quirky features with fine attention to detail. Bateman’s Row’s modest, yet stunning, façade conceals an intricate, geometric puzzle within.”
The defining feature of this penthouse is light and elegance of line. The sense of space and light is maximised through the use of plate glass, exposed concrete and neat lines. Plus, it has that most coveted of London attributes: views, in this case, dazzling ones of the City. The penthouse has lots of open space, and a garage and private lift.
Being in the heart of Shoreditch not only guarantees an incredibly easy commute to work (even if you work outside the City, Liverpool Street and Old Street are nearby with numerous rail and Tube connections), it also ensures you’re smack bang in the middle of some of London’s best cultural offerings and exciting restaurants.
The stunning, award-winning Bateman’s Row penthouse apartment is for sale through Foxtons, for £2.95m. Foxtons Shoreditch, 020 7033 1414.
