This grade 2 listed two floor apartment sits in the beautiful and historic Belgravia area of London in a terrace with a neo-classical facade. Our clients a family of four are based in the US, where there two sons go to university. This apartment is used as a luxury pied-a-terre, when they are in London. It needed to be an easy, fluid space including an area to entertain with a luxe and comfortable feel.

The apartment has beautiful period features including ornate plasterwork cornices and ceiling roses. We enhanced the high ceilings with stunning chandeliers highlighting the period features and the ceiling height. Layers of lighting were introduced to explore different moods from low to intense lighting, surrounding and central, and lighting specifically to highlight art and objects.

We designed a contemporary staircase with a glass balustrade and a bespoke stitched leather handrail enhancing the luxurious interior and adding a soft touch as you walk down the stairs. We incorporate all sensory elements into our designs including smell and touch.

This project is particularly special as it is in a beautiful historic area of London with unique period features. Our combination of contemporary design and technology sits fluidly with these features creating a design that references the past whilst sitting firmly in the present with great style and elegance.
