6 Orsman Road

Haggerston, N1

Pioneering timber architecture.

On the bank of the Regent’s Canal.

In the heart of creative Haggerston.


Welcome to 6 Orsman Road, Haggerston N1

Shoreditch architects Waugh Thistleton are the pioneers of cross-laminated timber – a sustainable material that’s not only non-toxic, but also increases productivity. Their design for 6 Orsman Road pushes new boundaries, celebrating biophilic design: using natural, sustainable materials like timber and clay finishes as well as natural daylight and air-purifying plants to create an environment that actively improves your wellbeing.

Everything from the exposed timber to the waterside setting is designed to make you feel calmer, more focused, more inspired. Every floor is flooded with natural light. The roof terrace boasts panoramic views over London, while the ground floor terrace basks in the peace and calm of the Regent’s Canal.

Creative Haggerston

Home to the likes of Roksanda, Dezeen and Resident First, Haggerston is the place to be for London’s most creative creatives. From Haggerston Overground, it’s four minutes to Shoreditch. And it’s also right on Super Cycle Highway 1, so you can cycle to Liverpool Street and Broadgate in just 14 minutes.

The surrounding streets – Kingsland Road, De Beauvoir Crescent – are full of small independent eateries, from Vietnamese cafes to artisan bakeries. You’ll also have access to Storey at 100 Liverpool Street and 4 Kingdom Street, with lounges, a café, meeting room and breakout spaces where you can pop in and work or meet clients.

What our customers think

  • Chris Sanderson
    Chief Creative Officer
    The Future Laboratory

    Storey at Orsman Road was the perfect blank canvas for us to create a new office fit for the challenges and opportunities of a new decade. Ticking all the boxes in terms of design, sustainability, community and accessibility, we’ve been able to focus on delivering an engaging and flexible space for our team to use as and when they need it.

  • Neal Shasore
    London School of Architecture

    We’re really excited by the potential of our new home at 6 Orsman to enhance the quality of our offering to students. It will allow us to increase the number of ways we can teach and interact with them – in person and virtually - by using our workspace and the building’s community amenities. Then there’s the intangible impact of being based in the heart of one of London’s most thriving creative districts. “The adaptability and flexibility provided by Storey means that we can grow with this space at a pace that suits us. We have ambitious plans for expansion over the next five to 10 years and so having the right infrastructure in place to support these is critical. “And of course, as architects, being based in such a beautiful and forward-thinking building that has sustainability at the core of its design makes it feel like a natural home for us too.

  • Shan Hanif
    CEO & Founder

    We chose 6 Orsman Road as Genflow’s new London HQ because of its natural light, flexible work floor plan and the location. The canal views from our desks, the industrial decor, the rooftop views — they’re all such a creativity booster. We have a hybrid working model in our company, so our priority was to create a space that boosted productivity and promoted a great working environment.
