Upcycle This loft apartment on Hoxton Square is a habitat worthy of the trendiest types of the East End. Panels of exposed brick rebel against sleek wooden floors and white walls, while recycled crates are transformed into cabinets, books into nightstands, and hessian sacks are your unlikely valence. But far from rough around the edges, this home’s stainless-steel worktops, glass-topped table and monochrome palette sharpen its recycled touches, cultivating an eco-friendly yet coolly contemporary dwelling. Do it yourself Your techy host develops apps for a living and his penchant for smooth interfaces can be seen throughout his home. He also loves photography, sports, and, true to his east London roots, sourcing retro goods on Brick Lane and in Spitalfields Market. Revivalism Be sure to admire the London skyline from the grand warehouse windows lined with cheerful potted plants. Or consult your ‘to do’ list on the blackboard-painted cupboards in the modish bathroom, where white ceramic tiled walls balance the brooding, black of the floor. And when you venture out from your carefully curated loft you’ll find a rare patch of green amidst the ever-urban East London. Stick around Hoxton Square for the nightlife, or explore further east for the fringes of London’s hipster bars and eateries.
