Next there is a small cloakroom clad in beautiful glass mosaic. The living/kitchen/dining area is open plan and there is a wrap around terrace from which to enjoy far reaching views over London. On the upper floor there is a spacious landing which leads on to the two en-suite bedrooms. Both bedrooms and bathrooms have full height windows again maximizing light and the outstanding views. The marble and stone has been supplied and installed by London Marble, the porcelain tiles are from Capitol Tiles and all sanitary ware and brass ware are from CP Hart.
The control of the amazing lighting scheme is by a Lutron system which was designed and installed by Livewire.
The contemporary art work really sets the tone for the space, each room has a piece which both emphasises and coordinates with the key colours of that area of the apartment. Something which Hartmann felt to be essential.
‘A lot of time was invested in sourcing the art,’ he explains, ‘It was vitally important for me to source works which were to a high standard. I approached the Stafford Gallery, Print Shop London, a Columbian artist Mauricio Rozo and Andy Harding an incredible local artist who have kindly have loaned us their pieces for a period of three months while prospective buyers view the property.’
Of course behind the scenes of this exclusive penthouse, there is the close eye being kept on budget, especially with the definite end point of generating as large a profit as possible. To this end HD Ltd have saved where they can with little tricks like using porcelain tiles as well as marble or granite. And stress that it is also important to ‘shop around and negotiate with your suppliers and inevitably you will find the right product at the right price.’
