More spacious than most of the city’s houses this 506 square meter apartment is located on the top 4 floors of an imposing Portland stone-fronted landmark building in London. A modern lift was installed during a major refurbishment making the vertical living space practical and comfortable. Comprising 5 bedroom suites, 2 large terraces, a cinema, leisure room and conservatory the accommodation has been re-configured and fitted out in the best classic contemporary fashion. Colour has been reduced to a palette of caramel, cream, off-white, chocolate and grey with occasional red detailing.
Modern interiors such as this focus on the many textural contrasts supplied by the varying tones and grains of fine woods like Wenge and Walnut. Leather, suede, high- gloss lacquered surfaces and striated marbles and stone have all been chosen as quiet but sophisticated materials. Each room features electrically operated, tailored Roman blinds made in plain or subtly striped linens; custom-fitted wardrobes are standard in the bedrooms. A pair of antique console tables either side of the drawing room fireplace and 2 over-scaled sofas are beautifully balanced by the choice of a pair of extended armchairs at the opposite end of the room.
