The Beldi is a converted loft space in the heart of Shoreditch, east London, overlooking St Leonard’s Church and its surrounding treetops. The light and open plan of the space reflects its history as a shoe factory, and the patterned use of handmade Beldi tiles is used to delineate the space within. Simplicity and craft come together in this verdant volume, forming an oasis from the urban jungle below.
We were drawn to Shoreditch because of its energy. It feels like one of the most exciting and dynamic areas in London at the moment and we wanted to live right in the middle of it.
It’s so central and is a hub for younger industries, technology and creative businesses, as well as many independent restaurants, bars and shops. For those reasons, we found it a stimulating place to be based as a young, creative couple.
