The Loom

Creative workspace in a former Victorian wool warehouse in the heart of Whitechapel.

After Helical acquired the former warehouse building in 2013, we set about completely refurbishing it. Common areas were revitalised to include a new café and shower/cycle facilities.

Great effort has gone into retaining the heritage and detail of the building and spaces. Original features such as wrought iron pillars and bare brickwork have been kept, even as the spaces have been opened up to fill the studios with light. A new central street, ‘The Walk’, runs through the building, creating collective space and a community atmosphere.

The Loom is in a great location for transport links. The Aldgate and Aldgate East Tube stations are both nearby, as are several other Overground, Underground and DLR stations.

The building is multi-let to a mix of tenants from a range of different industries.
