About the Building

Back in the early 1990’s The Manhattan Loft corporation along with the ideas of award-winning architect Piers Gough introduced loft living to Clerkenwell, converting this imposing former printing manufacturer into innovative and creative places to live.

They broke away from the uniform and conformist way of living, creating voluminous spaces that were energising, filled with light, retaining a little of the industrial past that Clerkenwell is so connected to. Designed by the celebrated architect Stanley Peach in the 1930’s, best known for his design of the Centre Court for the Lawn Tennis Association at Wimbledon, this commanding building represents Clerkenwell.

About the Area

What’s not to love about Clerkenwell, it has history, architecture and some of the most exquisitely designed buildings. It houses some of the most unique and quirky spaces one can find in London with many factories, office buildings, printers, haberdashers, distilleries, breweries, gemmologists, and smokehouses, now transformed into homes which amalgamate industrial and commercial spaces with the finest design finishes.
