About the building
Tapestry building is a unique residential dwelling in the City of London, located in a pedestrian street which is literally one minute away from Liverpool Street station. This substantial Georgian brickwork building was constructed between 1768 and 1771, originally used as a warehouse to store the imports from the East India Company, which at the time was the largest importer of goods from Asia and Far East, including cotton, liquor, tobacco, tea from China and all sorts of exotic spices. The goods were at the time transported from the river Thames and stored in this warehouse building, which formed part of a group of buildings known as the Cutler Street Complex, this vast and unique complex of warehouses underpinned the companies’ success in international trade for over a century.
Later in the 19th century, as the wealthy classes became fascinated with interior design, a whole range of new products including exotic rugs, ostrich feathers, Chinese cabinetry or sculptures made from Ivory replaced the old imports, and filled again the Tapestry building.
In 2010 the building was converted into 12 luxury loft style apartments. The building was carefully restored to keep its historic character, keeping the original ceilings with exposed beams and exposed brickwork interiors, combined with exquisite contemporary interior design which blended the tradition with the modern identity of the City of London.
