Strawberry Star to showcase London’s urban retreat ‘The Makers’ before Singapore investors

03 Aug 2018
Strawberry Star, an international property company, will showcase, “The Makers”, a development of 175 new homes, with a co-located college, tucked away from City Road between the vibrancy and dynamism of the Shoreditch area and the financial district of the City of London, before Singapore investors on August 25-26 at the St. Regis Hotel Singapore.
The scheme is a collaborative project between the London Borough of Hackney, the Local Education Partnership and design-led developers, Londonewcastle. The Makers building is perfectly placed in a quiet setting just five minutes’ walk from Old Street station (Silicon Roundabout) and less than a 20-minute walk from Angel Islington station and Liverpool Street station. Access to the rest of the City, West End and Canary Wharf can be achieved within 30 minutes. 
Mrs. Doris Tan, Regional Director, Strawberry Star, said, “Shoreditch has become the go-to destination for many of London’s most respected creatives, designers and tech-savvy entrepreneurs having an enviable balance of culture, independence, history and thriving business. Old Street has been hailed as the tech capital of Europe and the arrival of Nobu’s first European hotel underlines the global appeal of Shoreditch. The restaurants, bars and private member’s clubs are countless. It is an ideal destination for buy-to-let investors and owner occupiers.”
A generous provision of private communal facilities includes a screening room, two landscaped garden terraces, a gym, a treatment room and three lounges, perfect for ad-hoc meetings. The sensitive modern design conceived by Avanti Architects ensures the building responds to its environment by referencing the surrounding warehouse typology, but reinventing it for contemporary residents.
A breath-taking double-height entrance lobby hosts a 24/7 concierge, providing peace of mind, secure mail and delivery services, and access to bookable facilities. With interior design by Woods Bagot, the material palette takes inspiration from the 1920s – a stunning feature wall, terrazzo flooring, bespoke lighting, custom furniture, brass details and smoked oak chevron floors set the tone for what is to follow.
Designed to foster a sense of community both inside and outside, the shared areas include a lounge where residents can welcome guests, hold informal meetings, work and socialise, a screening room for films and live sporting events, a fully equipped gym and treatment room, and 160 square metres of outside space across two communal roof gardens – landscaped by Grant Associates – perfect for summer parties and alfresco dining. There is secure storage for 335 bikes.
On the ground floor there is also provision for two commercial units. By widening the pedestrianised Jasper Walk, and adding mature trees, plants and benches to create a friendly, welcoming public space ensure the building makes a positive contribution to its local community.
