In London’s southwestern Wandsworth neighborhood, Pocket Living’s Mapleton Crescent development gives locals the chance to own an affordable home that also demonstrates high design. Mapleton Crescent offers 53 one-bedroom homes available only to qualified first-time local buyers and 36 two- and three-bedroom market rate Pocket Edition homes. Designed by architecture firm Metropolitan Workshop, the 27-story building has a striking turquoise terracotta exterior and a distinctive triangular core, and has won multiple awards for both its design and social impact.
When residents first walk inside, they pass through an elegant double-height lobby with adjoining areas for mail, package storage and workspaces with comfortable seating. Dedicated bike storage, kit lockers and a bike repair area give residents peace of mind that they will always have a safe space for their rides. Additional communal spaces include an indoor residents’ lounge featuring a workspace with high-speed internet that overlooks the River Wandle, as well as a landscaped rooftop on the 23rd floor with expansive views across the entire city. Whether residents seek to work in Mapleton Crescent’s cozy nooks or invite friends up to the rooftop to watch the sunset, they have plenty of chances to meet and get to know one another in a place they can be proud to call home.
