Aldgate East Apartment is an interior design project completed in 2016 by London studio 2 Lovely Gays.

Project description: Finding the homely, personal touch in short term lets or rental spaces can be tricky, especially when you might be faced with a white box new build. Our latest project, 9 unique apartments in the heart of east London should give you some easy ideas on how you might bring your personal style into whatever space you call home.

Aldgate East Apartment 1

We used this opportunity to work with Habitat, a great British institution, but also to enable us to create a platform for lots of collaborations with young artists and smaller creative studios across London. With our fingers on the design pulse, finding up and coming design talent to collaborate with is something that is a huge part of our work and something that we love to do.

Aldgate East Apartment 3

With a co-working space on the ground floor and our design elements given pride of place we think that these apartments are carving an exciting new niche for this generation of dwellers.

Aldgate East Apartment 4

First tip in a new build is to bring in the soul with some wallpaper or bold curtains. Here we’ve commissioned award winning design duo, custom, to create some bespoke colour-ways of their existing designs to add that unique touch.

Aldgate East Apartment 5

We recommend that you keep curtains to the foor and wall to wall where possible to give that homely but clean contemporary feel.

Aldgate East Apartment 6

From textiles to artwork to furniture the opportunity to work with new designers is unique to our approach and ethos to design.

Aldgate East Apartment 7

We commissioned these original artworks from illustrator, joe gamble, based on our iphone snaps of the local area. Buying art from up and coming creatives is a great way to get your unique touch into your home.

Aldgate East Apartment 8

We used our own bedlinen designs with secret linen store to leave a little bit of 2lg in every room.

Aldgate East Apartment 9

We hand painted lots of terracotta pots to give a unique and one off personal touch to each space. No two are the same.
