Situated on the second floor podium, this well proportioned two bedroom apartment is located away from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding streets within the centre of the development, and benefits from wonderfully private patio garden. The ample open plan living space is well laid out allowing for distinct living, dining and cooking zones, with two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a separate guest shower room.
In 1979, the historic Odham's Print Works was redeveloped by the Greater London Council with guidance from the Covent Garden Community Association to create Odhams Walk, a mixed use development with residential flats located above a podium of commercial premises and parking. Architect Donald Ball saw the commission as a once in a lifetime opportunity, his design envisaging a public piazza connected by pedestrian ramps to the street, allowing free public access to the complex, with the flats in the two lower levels organised around inner courtyards and open galleries.
Odhams Walk in the present day is a prime example of post-war modernist architecture and successful urban planning, with an active residents association keen to protect the development's unique position as almost a village in its own right within Covent Garden.
