East End factory conversion a harmony of light, colour and texture

By Jan Moys

View latest articles


Housed in a former shoe factory on Shoreditch High Street, this remarkable three bedroom apartment is the work of celebrated design duo Chan & Eayrs.

The husband and wife team lived in the property during the two-year refurbishment, overseeing all aspects of the design and build process. They transformed the quadruple-aspect warehouse space into an exquisitely crafted and lovingly finished family home, right in the heart of buzzing Shoreditch.

The 2,850 sq ft property covers the third floor of the building, which is situated on the corner of Shoreditch High Street and Calvert Avenue. Handmade Moroccan and Chinese-inspired Beldi tiles were chosen to differentiate the living 'zones' of the large open-plan kitchen, dining and living space.

Green lime plaster walls and painted surfaces are designed to connect with the leafy views out from the large Crittall windows over Calvert Avenue and the church courtyard beyond. Raw oak joinery, marble sinks and surfaces, green linen blinds plus brass fixtures complete the interior palette.

This serene space enjoys all the benefits of a central location, with Old Street and Shoreditch High Street stations close by. The world-class restaurants, galleries, boutiques and bars of fashionable Shoreditch are right on the doorstep, with Spitalfields, Brick Lane and Columbia Road flower market also nearby.

Three spacious double bedrooms make this a practical and liveable home, while the study leading off from the reception area allows it to be used as a live/work space or studio.

Head over to our full listing for more details of this stunning property – currently on the market to let, priced at £2,500 pw.
