The space

Third (top) floor designer loft with two double bedrooms, one "upstairs" on mezzanine floor, large lounge/dining room, galley kitchen and bathroom.

Accommodation number quoted includes matresses for sleeping on mezzanine floor behind partitioning wall outside bedroom, which would particularly suit kids. Lounge/dining room very light due to large south-east and south-west facing windows.

In the famous Fish Island artists' and craftsmen's quarter and very close to Hackney Wick (incl. Overground station {12 minutes walk} to Stratford - one stop). Extremely short walk to the Olympic Park which is now fully open to the public and becoming more and more popular as a recreational area (for instance, the aquatic centre can be used by the public as a normal swimming pool). Half of the stadium and the Orbit can be seen from main window.

The Olympic park leads to the huge Stratford Westfield shopping centre (15 to 20 minutes walking distance) - here one can find all British "High Street" shops so that there is hardly any reason to go to Oxford Street/the West End. However, Westfield cannot quite match the experience of Harrods or the flagship Selfridges store, so serious shoppers will still be heading there!

7 minutes walk to stop for 24-hour bus No. 8 to Oxford Circus - ideal for exploring central London/West End around the clock. 8 minutes walk to Victoria Park; Hackney and Bow easily within pedestrian reach but also served by buses. 3 minutes walk to Old Ford Lock/Lea Navigation Canal.

If you don't want to make breakfast/cook, there is a cafe/restaurant in the building, plus many more in Fish Island. WiFi internet and radio/HiFi.

Drawbacks: No TV. No lift; most studios in the building are used as workplaces, so not very tidy in the approach to the loft; no smoking throughout the building - hyper-effective fire alarm! Occasionally someone listens to music over-enthusiastically and planes from London City can be made out - so not the ideal place if you want absolute peace and quiet.

House Rules

There aren't any, really, apart from not smoking. You can enjoy yourself and make noise to a reasonable level. The next-door neighbours are relaxed and quiet.

Jurgen is a lovely and welcoming host and we had a great time staying at his place. It was very reasonably priced, light, airy and spacious. A short walk gets you to tube or bus connections. Thoughtfully he left us eggs, bread, cereals and fruit which was very much appreciated. I…

I am originally from Germany but have lived in the London region since 1985. Besides using the loft to earn a living with mundane work, inspired by what it is and where it is I design and make a variety of things there. Hopefully you will like it as much as I do.
