This three bedroom apartment, with commanding views across Chelsea from the seventh floor of a 1930s residential block, has been revitalised with an extensive refurbishment.
We were influenced by the period of the building and the design alludes to the streamlined glamour of a luxury cruise liner. Flush timber panelling defines the main corridor which leads to all rooms; public areas of reception and kitchen are accessed through glass doors by the entrance whereas bedrooms and bathrooms locate a more private zone deep into the plan. All doors have been carefully detailed to disappear flush with the adjacent panelling to ensure the corridor appears smooth and seamless.
The restrained palette of Cherry and Travertine is warm yet sophisticated, with added interest provided via the red highlights of the hall carpet and the gloss lacquered kitchen. The simple colour palette is subtly varied across the apartment through a variety of textures and scale.
