HKR brings 66 urban residences with landscaped roof terrace and ground floor commercial space to Hackney Road.Toned weathering steel frames span the facade of the building, with an architectural rhythmic grid designed to resist corrosion and abrasion. The metal repairs itself, constantly evolving – painted by the rain, bleached by the sun and sculpted by the wind.
HKR witnesses a different side to London from every standpoint. To the south and west the towering glass structures of the City bite into Shoreditch. To the east, the modern goliaths of Canary Wharf rise up from the Thames and, to the north, Hackney’s green treetops seem to go on endlessly.
The orange glow of the reception’s fireplace and weathered steel walls creates a warm, welcoming feel. The concierge provides added security and a friendly face to
address residents’ queries and requests throughout the day. They can also receive and store deliveries to give you complete peace of mind.
HKR’s living spaces embrace refinement, but maintain an uncompromising urban spirit. Contemporary textures and tones are accented by russet hues inspired by the building’s facade. This is your piece of Hoxton, a calm reprieve from the abiding energy of Shoreditch’s bustling streets, Hoxton’s buzzing markets and Hackney Road’s busy local life.
The landscaped garden terrace is a rare commodity in Hoxton, providing lush greenery, comfortable seating and wifi. But it is more than just outside space; this is your lookout for long summer evenings in the open air without having to leave the comfort of home.
Higher still, the tenth floor sky terrace is at the pinnacle of HKR. Perfect for entertaining, socialising and relaxing, it’s here residents can recline on the soft seating and take in panoramic views of the City and Canary Wharf. Planters line the edge of the wooden decking and form a green perimeter which creates a sense of natural sanctuary in urban Hoxton.
The fully-equipped private residents’ gym is located on the fifth floor terrace. Enclosed, but still affording commanding views over the City and Docklands, there are also outside areas for yoga or fitness classes. It’s a rare convenience – no need to detour on the commute home.
