Art, Design and Clerkenwell Penthouses, Rosebery Avenue, EC1

By on Wednesday, May 14th, 2014 in New Homes, Slider.

Clerkenwell has a long tradition of cutting edge design, furniture showrooms and young British artists.

Take a walk around the area and you will discover leading furniture designers such as Knoll, Vitra, and over 60 more high-end furniture showrooms. In May each year over 50,000 attendees visit the Clerkenwell Design Week admiring some 250 exhibiting brands that showcase the latest, most eclectic, or long awaited launches of their latest pieces of fresh design from their studio.

It’s no wonder that Clerkenwell residents acquire or aspire to dress their penthouses, modern spaces and loft apartments in the most exquisite art & design inspired furniture, after all everything is available on their doorstep.

Our young British artists are also well represented; Sam Taylor-Wood used to wait tables at Vic Naylors opposite our office, Mark Quinn sold his Clerkenwell home to Janet Street-Porter and Gary Hume has moved in around the corner.

The area is then perfectly suited to the ethos of niche developer Londonewcastle who have built a solid reputation for high specification, design led office and residential spaces. Their Arts Programme was founded with the aim of putting vacant spaces to meaningful use by collaborating with London’s artists and creative community. The programme also supports Street Art, providing large canvases for local, regional, national and international artists; established, emerging, infamous or just unknown.

Below is a teaser video produced by creative agency Tom Hingston Studio that riffs on the identity they cleverly conceived for 62-68 Rosebery Avenue, which is inspired by the eclectic signage and typography found in the local, vibrant area around Exmouth Market.



In June we will be launching 4 exquisite Clerkenwell penthouses for Londonewcastle at 62-68 Rosebery Avenue. The development features interiors by The Sheldon Studio, bespoke high specification finishes and fantastic AV installed – not to mention the video installation in the lifts by New York-based artist Marco Brambilla.
