    2. There's room at The Loom

      5 April 2019
      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 insurance.

      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.
