Dandi Wembley co-living rental launches in London

Published

Dandi Wembley, London’s newest kid on the block when it comes to the co-living landscape, is certainly enticing. Its offering, some 350 micro-apartments packaged with a range of communal living spaces for its residents, come meticulously designed, with a level of thought, bespoke detailing and customisation that would match any high-end, privately owned property. Meanwhile, its shared areas bridge work, leisure and relaxation with some striking city views to boot. Could this be the future of urban living, and renting? (Image credit: Dandi Wembley)Living at Dandi WembleyDandi Wembley is the brainchild of developer Dandi and its partner Dukelease, who set out to create an innovative proposition for the London rental market. ‘We are delighted to launch our flagship co-living scheme in Wembley after 17 years of continuous innovation and improvement while working on smaller London schemes. This process won’t stop here. Dandi is a family business and we truly believe in creating homes that enrich people’s lives. This is why we challenge norms. We want to make better living spaces available to more people. 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,’ says Dandi’s founder, Ali Reza Ravanshad.(Image credit: Dandi Wembley)The apartment interiors are full of smart, space-saving solutions, from a bed that can be raised to the ceiling at the touch of a button, to transform the studio space from bedroom to living area, workout hub or study; to hidden storage in unexpected places; concealed kitchen cabinets; and tailor-made furniture to match its adaptable environment.(Image credit: Dandi Wembley)Ravanshad adds: ‘Our vision isn’t only about what we create but how we create it. We have established our own supply chain and built our own factory in west London, which means we can maintain total control over quality and sustainability. From product design to manufacturing, construction to management, we want to do things the right way. Ultimately we want to reimagine city living.'(Image credit: Dandi Wembley)At the same time, a sense of luxury prevails, despite the apartments’ boutique size. There are two sinks – one of which transforms into a vanity and dressing area; a specially designed range of toiletries for each unit; and high-end windows that provide an abundance of light and fresh air as needed, while ensuring acoustic insulation. (Image credit: Dandi Wembley)The residents’ amenities are boosted by a restaurant at the top, Dariana, which can be accessible to the wider public too, bringing in the local community. This is mirrored also in the co-wording space, which offers memberships beyond the Dandi Wembley residents, helping the development blend with its surroundings in scope and function. (Image credit: Dandi Wembley)Dandi Wembley is the company’s flagship, but there are more iterations coming up from the brand – in London’s Brondesbury and Battersea. ‘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 enhanced way of living that is aspirational for our residents,’ says Dukelease CEO Richard Leslie. (Image credit: Dandi Wembley)(Image credit: Dandi Wembley)(Image credit: Dandi Wembley)dandi.com (opens in new tab)

ICE London 2023 to feature exhibitors from record 68 nations – IAG

Published

on

By



Industry trade show ICE London will feature exhibitors from a record 68 nations, topping the previous best of 65 set three years ago, according to organizer Clarion Gaming.
ICE London returns as a full-sized show for the first time since 2020 from 7 to 9 February, with the total 623 exhibitors representing everything from Argentina to Australia and Macau to Mexico.
“No other exhibition in the gaming space can come anywhere near the internationalism of ICE,” said Clarion Gaming Managing Director, Stuart Hunter.
“To have 68 nations represented by our community of exhibitors means that visitors are immediately part of what is a global experience with unique access to the smartest gaming innovators drawn from every corner of the world. There are very few exhibitions of scale in any industry sector which are able to compare with such international representation and legitimately lay claim to being a ‘global’ or a ‘world’ event.
“Once an event is recognized as being genuinely international, stakeholder groups including brands, regulators, trade associations, media groups and strategic industry-wide bodies focus their activities accordingly.
“Research that we’ve undertaken has shown that for many people ICE and iGB Affiliate London actually start on the Sunday preceding and finish on the following Saturday. In that week we estimate that over 100 gambling industry events will take place outside of the show hours providing a new and compelling perspective on why ICE and iGB Affiliate London are so influential and important to the world industry.”
IAG will have a team of four at ICE London next week. Visit us at Stand ND7-C.

David Ford and Annie Dressner Live in London

Published

By


There’s something special about London on a Saturday night – there’s a certain buzz in the air as you head into the Capital city. For me that buzz was extra special, as I was going to see David Ford and Annie Dressner at The Lexington in Islington. I literally listened to their ’10 Days (Live)’ album for the first time a week ago, but since then it’s been on repeat and heading in I knew that the night was going to be special.
The Lexington is a great place for music, with a bar on the ground floor before heading up the winding stairs to the spacious venue itself. And as the crowd started coming in, the atmosphere in the room was growing by the minute.
Opening the night was Scottish singer songwriter Gary Stewart. He set the night off really well, with an engaging set that got the crowd onside from the start. He opened with his 2021 single ‘Hot To Trot‘ and you already knew the set was going to be a good one – a rousing folk song with great lyrical dexterity. The highlight of the set was ‘Frontlines’, a simply gorgeous song (check out a YouTube video of the song here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDCLwYwsesk). Gary ended with a fine cover of Paul Simon’s ‘Song for the Asking’.
It was time for a quick visit to the bar before settling down for the main event. 
The duo appeared on the stage to great applause, David in an orange shirt and Annie in a sparkling black dress. They opened with ‘Easy Falling’, the first song that I’ve ever heard of theirs, and a song that convinced me I needed to listen to the rest of the album. This slow and moving number is a touching love song and shows off the brilliant harmonies of David and Annie – there’s something special about the English (David) and US accents (Annie) mingling in the way that they do. 
Throughout the set, there were so many highlights. ‘Something I’ll Have to Learn‘ is a song with an almost timeless feel that feels like a conversation in song, Annie’s original ‘Strangers Who Knew Each Other’s Names‘ was simply brilliant and ‘Some Folks Are Lucky I Guess‘ is a song with a great sentiment. ‘Can’t Help What I Want‘ (below) is a great example of those brilliant harmonies that the two share.

‘Trash‘, a cover of the Suede hit, was a particular highlight – a song that was a nice surprise on the live album. As they break into ‘Oh maybe, maybe it’s the clothes you wear‘ it almost feels like this was a song that Suede wrote for David and Annie, their version is that good. Outstanding.
The set had a second cover, a song that Annie introduced as ‘an American classic‘. This classic was ‘Ain’t No Pleasing You‘ from Chas and Dave, a song that typified the cockney sound of London back in the 1980’s. I love the way they re-worked it and there was something special about the way Annie sings the word ‘Darling’ in her US twang that just resonated and put a smile on my face.
There were great moments of humour throughout the night, the chat between the two great. At one point mid-song, Annie passed her guitar to David, exclaiming ‘I knew there were chords in this song, I just didn’t know which ones‘ which had the crowd laughing.
The best of the night was saved till last. ‘Warning Sign’ had quickly become my favourite song from the pair and hearing it live in person lived up to all expectations. There’s such a beauty in live music, and hearing songs like this with other people in a venue can really bring a song home – and almost even change your own personal relationship with a song.
The final song of the night (there was no encore as David explained that they literally had no more songs!) was ‘Put Me In A Corner’. Annie’s vocals take the lead in this track and it was just magical, the emotion of the song emanating from the stage and filling the room. You can listen and see for yourself below.

You never know what to expect when you see an artist or artists perform for the first time. Some exceed expectations and some just don’t hit the heights you expect. In David Ford and Annie Dressner, it was definitely the former. The gig was stripped back – just two people on a stage creating a moment. And what a moment it was.

***Note – I need to say a word about the audience for the gig. The audience was impeccable, with barely any talking at all at any point (apart from whispered orders at the bar). Credit goes to Gary, Annie and David, who managed to grab the audience from the start, but also to everyone there. If you were there yourself, give yourself a high five!***
