"A genuine warehouse conversion, not an office block makeover with extra kitchens and bathrooms."

Edmund Kirby


The Birchin was built in 1936 as warehousing and like many old industrial buildings it converts wonderfully to modern apartments allowing generous ceiling heights and windows.

The configuration has allowed the design team to create a welcoming and secure entrance to the building with a communal courtyard garden.

The common areas are bright, well lit and a work of art in themselves.The common areas will be managed and the building has been designed to minimize service charges

Safety and security has been designed into the building from its inception with both active and passive systems built in to the common areas and individual apartments

The Hemingways are storage fanatics (ask their 4 kids!!) so great emphasis has been placed on innovative storage solutions throughout each apartment. We are not going to give you all that sales talk about designer label sanitary ware. Just look at the images, come down to the show flat and see for yourself that from when you enter through your apartment door , kick your shoes onto your floor, turn on your shower and put the kettle on for the Pot Noodle ,the design team have put real effort into making your apartment the epitome of “affordable luxury”

Add to the design quality and innovative thinking ,wiring solutions that enable you to listen to DAB Digital radio (every apartment gets one of Wayne Hemingways” Bug “ Digital Radio), use broadband and subscribe seamlessly to Sky and you have an apartment that is fine and dandy.
