Our previous design projects in Shoreditch
Our Shoreditch interior designers recently worked their magic on an empty space in Shoreditch and transformed it into a stylish contemporary home. We consulted with our younger client to create an open plan living area in their new home in Cordy House (Old Street), which is both airy and fresh. Furniture and accessories were sourced from around the world, including a table from the Eiffel Tower, to create an eclectic style of various textures and patterns. A vintage chandelier and feature mirror really opened up the space and added a Bohemian twist. The canopy bed in the master bedroom was complemented with vintage table lamps and landscaped wallpaper to continue this theme of the traditional and modern co-existing harmoniously in this bright space.
Architecture and famous listed buildings in Shoreditch
The gentrification of Shoreditch has been well-documented and it has worked its way up from a neglected industrial area to being a major art hub. It has been home to some of the fastest re-development in the capital, but by having a mix of international residents, artists and East London locals, it has retained its own unique character. Most of the development has taken place in the vibrant ‘Shoreditch Triangle’, composed of Shoreditch High Street, Great Eastern Street and Old Street, but it also extends to Brick lane and Bishopsgate. Shoreditch Town Hall is a Grade II listed building that was built in 1865 and contains some wonderful classical elements, such as Doric columns. Its high-coved ceilings and stained glass windows continue to inspire Shoreditch interior designers. The Grade II listed Victorian Old School House building situated at 66 Leonard Street in between Clerkenwell and Liverpool Street has been converted into offices. The former church school house has retained most of its 19th-century features, including the 150-year-old stone façade and timber barrel vault ceiling and the interior is a unique workspace with its large arched windows letting in lots of light.
Is Shoreditch close to museums and exhibitions?
It’s not surprising that Shoreditch has a great selection of exhibitions since it is located in the most creative corner of London. There are countless private galleries and the Victoria Miro Gallery is a great place to start. Shoreditch interior designers love this leading British contemporary art gallery which has a fantastic reputation for showcasing the best emerging artists in a converted 8,000-square-foot former furniture factory in Hoxton. It may seem contradictory to confine street art to a gallery but the Howard Griffin Gallery should not be missed, containing the work of iconic artists like Mehdi Ghadyanloo, Bob Mazzer and Thierry Noir to name just a few. Aside from art, Wesley’s Chapel is a little known gem of a museum located on City Road near Old Street. The Methodist church was built by John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement and has a fascinating history.
Restaurants, nightlife and things to do in Shoreditch
There is no way you can ever be bored in Shoreditch: shoppers, culture vultures and foodies are all well catered for in the Shoreditch Triangle and beyond. There are numerous boutique stores and trendy fashion houses, and Spitalfields Market is a delight for those who have eclectic taste. If you like international cuisine, you have unlimited possibilities: head to Brick Lane for Curry, Kingsland Road for Vietnamese and try Tas Firin, Oklava or Pera for delicious Turkish food. Galvin La Chapelle is run by Michelin-starred chefs and serves exquisite French food in opulent surroundings. The Tramshed is a meat lover’s paradise and designed in a typically edgy yet utilitarian way by Shoreditch interior designers who favour a simple cafeteria-like aesthetic. Carnivores will also enjoy Hawksmoor steakhouse on Commercial Street, but other dishes are also available, along with some impressive cocktails. The bar scene is equally compelling with an eclectic selection of chic bars, local taverns and nightclubs. Some interesting choices around Hoxton Square include Happiness Forgets, the Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen and Underbelly. Other great bars include Nightjar, The Reliance and Joyeux Bordel for creative cocktails and a vintage vibe.
Why do you want to live in Shoreditch? What famous people live there?
Shoreditch is ideally placed for accessing the West End and major train stations like Liverpool Street. It’s a popular place for young professionals to live and many of them live in loft conversions where Shoreditch interior designers showcase their skills, contributing to the cool and creative reputation of the area. It’s still high in historic worth since traditional businesses and markets co-exist alongside trendy new coffee shops and pop-up shops. Designers are just as likely to find themselves living next door to bankers and entrepreneurs, and this mix makes Shoreditch so appealing. Residents with families can find some good schools such as Our Lady and St Joseph Roman Catholic Primary School, Sir John Cass’s Foundation Primary School and Central Foundation Boys’ School. Celebrities who have lived in the area include Russell Brand, Keira Knightley, Alexa Chung and Tracey Emin.
