The project was a full turn-key brief for a 2700sqf apartment on Cavendish Square, London. The brief was to create a high-end luxury apartment with an ‘industrial-chic’ essence.
The biggest challenge for this project was the spatial planning and fire regulations. Originally, the bedrooms were located with access to the back terrace whilst the kitchen and living room were confined to the front of the apartment. We immediately wanted to swap these over and have the kitchen with direct access to the terrace. We installed a drop fire curtain with the fittings plastered into the wall to conceal the curtain with a minimal shadow gap detail on the walls and ceiling.
To create the industrial chic look whilst maintaining the luxury quality, we used weathered effect polished plaster through the hallway, living room and kitchen. We complimented the polished plaster with mineral tiles that we used on the fireplace in the living room. We designed two bespoke display units on both sides of the fireplace. The finishes on the unit included high gloss lacquered veneer and faux shagreen cladded doors with nickel handles to add contrast to the weathered finishes and create a luxury feel. We used mirrors at the back of the unit shelves to open the space.
We used distressed mirror panelling in the hallway to create the illusion of a large space. The panelling also concealed the entrance to the powder room and two cloak cupboards.
We used charcoal coloured wood veneer leaf patter wall covering and black glass vanity unit in the powder room to create a dark moody ambiance.
The client was very specific about having maximum wardrobe space in the bedroom. We design all the wardrobe joinery for the project at 5mm and created versatile solutions for storage. The TV wall conceals luggage storage and uses the same veneer that we used for the wardrobes in the dressing area.
The master en-suite features book matched faux marble slabs in the double shower. We used mismatched faux marble designs for the other walls in the bathroom.
