There's room at The Loom
We've written about this imaginatively
converted Victorian wool store in Whitechapel on a number of occasions, most
recently when the building reached fully let status towards the end of last
year. It's an incredible reworking of the building by Helical to a design by
Joe Morris Architects.
We are now offering a space of 1,414ft2
on the 3rd floor that has been fitted to a high quality plug & play
standard. Incorporating a large open plan workspace with an integrated private
office behind glazed factory-style walls, the unit is furnished with flair with
slate coloured workstations, black desk chairs, and timber meeting tables, a
Scandi-design breakout area and a kitchenette with Bosch appliances.
The office presents as an all-inclusive
solution for businesses looking to manage their cash-flow without a large
capital outlay. With flexible lease terms beginning at just one year, the
monthly outgoings include rent, businesses rates, service charge and building
The flexibility of term also includes
the ability to move spaces within the building and to expand or contract
whenever is right, subject only to availability at the time.
The Loom is an eye-catching and
imaginative transformation of industrial-era architecture that has successfully
paired the building’s original fabric with a contemporary aesthetic in a way
that is remarkably simple yet strikingly effective. Grit-blasted brickwork is a
running constant both inside and out and is augmented with new and old metal
and timber in gun metal grey: a palette that is equally bold and restrained.
The Loom is a sociable, secure and well-equipped
building with networking events and spaces for collaboration along with 24-hour
security, daytime receptionist, a choice of high-speed fibre providers, cycle
storage, shower facilities and lockers.
Whitechapel has successfully extended
the City Fringe eastwards and placed itself squarely inside as a destination
location for creative enterprises. Alongside a number of renovated industrial
buildings synonymous with the area’s textile industry past, new apartment
buildings and multiple modern retailers, coffee shops, bars and restaurants
have swiftly expanded the local scene into a comprehensive offering of new
local favourites for workers and residents.
While existing connectivity was already
good with Whitechapel, Aldgate & Aldgate East Underground stations, things
are set for a major leap forwards when Crossrail's Elizabeth Line opens later
this year with up to 24 trains an hour running direct to Farringdon,
Paddington, Heathrow and Reading in the west, and Canary Wharf, Abbey Wood and
Romford in the east.
