Dukelease and Dandi announces the opening of its innovative co-living scheme

Dukelease and Dandi announced the opening of their flagship co-living scheme in Wembley, unveiling 355 innovatively designed apartments and two floors of elegant amenity space. The development is redefining co-living by delivering an elevated new standard of rental design reminiscent of a luxury hotel. The design-led scheme offers adaptable studio and 1-bedroom apartments with innovative space management solutions that cleverly allow each home to be configured into five different modalities throughout the day: sleep, exercise, work, eat and play. Complete with beautiful amenity spaces and access to a curated cultural and social events programme, Dandi Wembley allows residents to enjoy vibrant community living in the heart of one of London’s most creative neighbourhoods.

Dandi Wembley has transformed a former office building into unique apartments starting at 255 square feet, expertly designed to maximise every centimetre of space. From floating beds and modular sofas to pull-out breakfast bars and concealed kitchen cabinets, the apartments are ingeniously designed to evolve around the resident, marking cutting edge design more widely accessible. Each impeccable apartment comes complete with a floating bed, 50-inch smart TV, kitchenette with marble worktops and splashbacks, a bathroom with a rainfall shower, floor to ceiling storage and air purifying systems. Seamlessly designed in both form and function, the bespoke furniture is created by Dandi’s in-house design team and manufactured at the vertically integrated Dandi facilities in West London. The pieces allow the apartments’ function to adapt to optimise space without compromising style.

Beyond the apartments, Dandi Wembley’s two light-filled penthouse floors offer intricately designed amenity spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows and enviable panoramic views of the city. Located on the 16th floor of Dandi Wembley is Dariana Café, a cafe and bar that’s freely open for membership, to all. The informal yet sophisticated restaurant features a seasonal menu offering international comfort food blended with Persian flavours. Non-residents can apply for free membership, enjoying full access to the intimate space which features fully grown evergreen trees and the calming sounds of fountain under a retractable glass rooftop, flooding the room with natural light. A stone’s throw away is Dariana Lounge Bar, a private rooftop haven offering a tranquil setting to unwind, complete with a self-service drinks station and in-house mixologist for residents, co-working members, and their guests.

Located above Wembley Park’s London Designer Outlet, Dandi Wembley is situated in one of London’s most creative quarters, with a long-established musical, sporting, and arts scene. Well connected with the nearest tube stations so the capital’s centre can be reached in under 15 minutes, Dandi Wembley residents have direct access to an influential cultural neighbourhood whilst only a short distance from the additional commercial and culinary offerings, museums, galleries and shopping that central London has to offer.

Richard Leslie, CEO of Dukelease Properties comments: “Co-living undoubtedly presents a unique opportunity to combat the housing affordability challenge that London is facing. Together with Dandi, we have placed huge importance on the quality of the finishes and functionality of the design to provide an enhance way of living that is aspirational for our residents.”

Ali Reza Ravanshad, Founder of Dandi, comments: “We are delighted to launch this flagship co-living scheme in Wembley after 17 years of continuous innovation and improvement while working on smaller London schemes. Here at Dandi Wembley we have developed homes in which people can enjoy their own beautiful private spaces while being part of something bigger, a community that interacts in a range of elegant, shared spaces – what we call the theatre of life.”
