The Shoreditch - Long and Waterson, E2
Long and Waterston
Tucked behind the bustling streets of Shoreditch sits Long & Waterson, a residential scheme of 119 lofts, apartments and penthouses.
This quiet enclave of Shoreditch provides beautifully landscaped gardens surrounded by the retained and converted Long Street workshops and the superb new addition of The Waterson Building. Complete with residents only amenities and interiors designed by New York based ODA Architecture, Long & Waterson offers the opportunity to live in London's coolest borough, in its coolest new address.
The design of the new Waterson Building was heavily influenced by the ethos of the modern architectural movement as seen in the existing two former workshop buildings. Internally the apartments have clean, simple lines and the penthouses have floor to ceiling windows.
Externally, the brick work and windows, which are the trademark of the existing scheme, are expressed in the façade of the new building, and so old and new sit elegantly side by side.
The considered design is evident throughout; the creation of a raised podium has provided an elevated usable garden space that will be light and bright; a moment of calm in this urban location. The amenities are all situated over the ground and lower ground floors of The Waterson Building. As you enter, you're greeted by a 24-hour concierge within a welcoming lobby and library - a comfortable nook to wait for your guests or to chill out in. On the lower ground floor, you'll find a spacious gym with state of the art equipment and masses of natural light, with floor-to-ceiling glass providing views out into a sunken garden. Alongside the gym are both wet and dry saunas and a bookable treatment room. The cinema room is an intimate space - you will be able to rent a film through a pay-per-view service or use your Sky card.
Have friends over or meet up with your neighbours and kick back in this great setting.
