Back in the late 19th Century, on the site of Anthology Hoxton Press stood a paper and craft company owned by the Mullord Brothers. Here they created distinctive, Victorian-era playing cards and lace papers, and it’s this story of care, craftsmanship and appreciation of materials, which has inspired the name of Anthology Hoxton Press.
Designed by renowned architects Karakusevic Carson Architects and David Chipperfield Architects, Anthology Hoxton Press is made of two unique hexagonal towers, sat between Shoreditch Park and Regent’s Canal. Inside there are one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as penthouse suites, boasting balconies and roof terraces. Supporting it all is a dramatically designed ground floor café and welcoming communal spaces.
Hackney Council is working with Anthology on this exciting part of the regeneration of the Colville Estate. In the absence of any government funding, the properties sold at Anthology Hoxton Press will help pay for hundreds of new council homes for social rent and shared ownership for local people nearby.
Anthology Hoxton Press integrates the area’s prestige of creativity and design into a clean, contemporary, comfortable living space.
Hoxton is one of London’s most vibrant living and working neighbourhoods. Home to a community of artists, designers and media companies, it’s alive with creativity. Contemporary art galleries sit alongside pop-up eateries and cocktail bars while quirky boutique shops and the famous Hoxton Street Market provide everything from antiques to vegetables. The quiet, green spaces of Shoreditch Park and Regent’s Canal are nearby and the area is served by excellent schools and quick transport links to the City, West End and beyond.
