Hox­ton’s cool — and gives you out­door liv­ing all year round

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - New Homes -

HOX­TON PRESS takes its name from the site’s print­ing past as a maker of greet­ings cards. Clad in neat Bel­gian bricks, the scheme of 198 flats in two hexag­o­nal-shaped midrise tow­ers is one of Lon­don’s best ex­am­ples of space-ef­fi­cient de­sign.

A frame­less wall of slid­ing glass in the main liv­ing space opens on to a deep and wide bal­cony, shel­tered from the el­e­ments and use­able all year round. In­te­ri­ors have higher ceil­ings than re­quired by the Mayor’s Lon­don Plan reg­u­la­tions, while pocket doors slide back into the wall cav­ity, sav­ing space, and there is clev­erly con­cealed stor­age.

Un­der­floor heat­ing means walls can re­main ra­di­a­tor free, and with oak floors through­out, a white-lac­quered kitchen and shadow-gap skirt­ing boards, the look is clean-cut, con­tem­po­rary and com­fort­able.

Prices start at £615,000. Call de­vel­oper An­thol­ogy on 020 3308 9813.

From £615,000: apart­ments with bal­conies and un­der­floor heat­ing at Hox­ton Press, Penn Street, N1
