The Ziggurat Building is located in the heart of Clerkenwell, in one of London’s most vibrant and constantly evolving central areas.
The Ziggurat Building is located right in the heart of Clerkenwell, near Hatton Garden and London’s jewellery district. The area is constantly evolving and Farringdon Station is to become one of the main hubs of the new Crossrail line, launching in 2020. Bordering the City of London, and with major companies such as Amazon, Linkedin and Goldman Sachs opening their headquarters in the neighbourhood, the Ziggurat is located right at the centre of the action.
A former print works which until the 1980’s serviced the British newspaper trade, The Ziggurat was converted into flats in 1997 by ORMS architects.
It was one of the first loft conversions in Clerkenwell and has become one of the most recognised and sought after residential buildings in London.
The building takes its name from Mesopotamian pyramid-like structures, spanning several terraced stories. Built in the 1930’s, it is an Art Deco landmark retaining many original features such as exposed concrete ceilings and columns, sandblasted brickwork and stainless steel clad walls in the hallway. Many individual flats also retain these details.
