Nestled in one of London’s most fashionable postcodes, 21 John Street is A Grade 11 listed building at the forefront of Art Deco living in the heart of the Capital.

Haines House was built in 1938 as Mytre House whose first occupants were Linotype and Machinery Ltd a printing and engineering company. The architects of the building were Denis Edmund Harrington who were an Associate of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architect) from 1928 and a fellow from 1941.

This building is a pioneering example of Art Deco style and functionality. It was constructed in 1938 as a revolutionary example of multi-use developments; a lifestyle that is emulated the world

over today.

21 John Street has being sympathetically restored and converted to create 8 luxury apartments, bringing the building back to the pinnacle of 1930’s Art Deco London living. Each apartment is exclusively designed to complement its position within the building, with the lower level apartments benefiting from generous open floor plans and those on the upper stories enjoying magnificent views across the city.

This unique development is recognised with a Grade II listing, for its unique architectural character and contribution, which protects it as a heritage asset for future generations.

With bespoke kitchen layouts, fitted with composite worktops, integrated top of the range appliances, each apartment is also fitted with Sonos/ Opus (hardwired/ integrated) multi-room sound systems and bespoke built-in wardrobes in the bedrooms.
