L&Q’s new show home demonstrates all the benefits of a duplex apartment. The generous open-plan kitchen and living room is the perfect space for hosting; an elegant sage green colour scheme runs throughout and is complimented by the natural materials of the dining table and coffee table. Plenty of natural light pours in from the floor to ceiling windows, and large, well-placed plants bring the essence of the outdoors in. Off the living space, the duplex apartment benefits from a good-sized bathroom, which is inclusive of a heated towel rail and stylish oversized grey tiles. Additionally, all residents can enjoy a bright and airy balcony, perfect for warmer days, and access to a communal roof terrace with stunning city views.

Meanwhile, two spacious bedrooms are tucked away on the upper floor, creating a restful sanctuary away from the noise of the living areas. In the main bedroom, eye-catching botanical wallpaper is paired with teal sheets and a fluffy rug to create a cosy feel. The addition of full-length glass door, which lead out onto the balcony, allows light to flood into the room. The second bedroom features twin beds, cloud print wallpaper, and colourful prints which make for the perfect children’s bedroom.

Catering for those who need to work from home, outside the bedrooms there is room for a neutral home-working space and colourful, yet daintily decorated, bedrooms. Across the hallway, the second family bathroom is complete with a bath and plenty of storage space. As an additional bonus, the apartment is provided with energy efficient hot water, allowing residents to enjoy a relaxing bath.

The Canning Town regeneration programme has and continues to bring numerous new public spaces, cafes and restaurants and shops including a vast Morrisons for residents to enjoy close to L&Q at Brunel Street Works.
