THE LEGAL BIT
While we endeavour to provide accurate photographs, floor plans, and descriptions, these should be intended as a guide. Total floor plan measurements are sometimes rounded for ease, and distances are approximated. Purchasers should always satisfy themselves through personal inspection.
In the heartland of Dalston, the visually striking Kinetica Apartments are a blueprint for modern, urban design. The aerodynamic shape of the building harnesses wind that powers its own turbines, reducing the building's environmental impact.
The home itself is just as impressive. Stepping inside, you're immediately drawn to the open-plan living space at the back, an area suffused with light thanks to windows on both sides and a wall of glass overlooking the curved balcony. The layout lends itself to zones, and the distinctive shape funnels the focus towards the expansive skyscape.
The decor is tastefully simple, with a pleasing use of colour – we adore the stylish forest green of the kitchen. The bedrooms are quiet and serene thanks to the elevated position, high above the bustle below. Both are comfortable doubles, while the larger of the two has the bonus of an ensuite shower room. Down on the 4th floor, a large communal terrace gives you a chance to enjoy the vistas and get to know the neighbours.
The Kinetica Apartments are in a prime position for getting the full benefit of East London living. Never more than a few minutes from stumbling across delicious food, high-grade coffee or a welcoming watering hole, accompanied by the unmistakable vibe that makes it popular with visitors far and wide. Plus, there are some exceptional green spaces on your doorstep –– go for a year-round dip in the heated London Fields lido, or take a stroll through leafy Victoria Park.
THE OWNER SAYS
When we first saw the property, we were blown away by the large, light living area and 180-degree unobstructed views of London – we knew immediately this was where we wanted to live!
Kinetica Apartments is right in the heart of Dalston, which is packed with bars and restaurants as well as having good transport links. The property is quiet as it doesn't share walls with other flats, and the building has a strong sense of community. Architecturally, it is very modern, and the turbines provide 15% of the energy to the building, meaning energy costs are kept low.
Explore East London
Allpress are a big name in coffee, with a few select branches worldwide including Sydney and Tokyo, but they are generally focused on the sale of beans wholesale. Regardless, their smart conversion of an old commercial building has created a mecca for local coffee lovers. It's great space to spend time and watch people come and go.
Planted atop what was once the old Eastern Curve Railway line, this community garden is an oasis of green amongst the buzz. With a café kiosk, pizza oven and cosy greenhouse (complete with woodburning stove), it’s a great place to eat, drink and gather—casually or at events ranging from birdwatching and candle-making workshops to festive season singalongs.
Occupying a historic building that once housed a 1930’s dance school, this pub and general hang-out space is hugely atmospheric and a great spot to while away the time drinking, eating and relaxing.
Make the most of Dalston's cultural canvas by visiting the renowned, community-focused theatre (or the bar of course, which is equally worth a trip).
This independent “art deco picture palace” has a storied history, but its real appeal is arthouse and family-friendly fare in a rare and wonderful setting. Come for the film, stay for the new whisky bar, situated conveniently next to Screen 2.
