the montpellier penthouse
One of our latest projects is this stunning three-bedroomed Montpellier Penthouse in the prestigious Sovereign Court development in Hammersmith, which overlooks the River Thames.
Client: St George
Status: Completed October 2018
Services Provided: Interior Design
Our design inspiration came from local London influences – from the Victorian architecture of nearby Hammersmith Bridge and Harrods Furniture Depository which reflect the amazing engineering feats of the Industrial Revolution, to nearby Kew Gardens. All these elements are reflected in the furniture, materials, colours and finishes throughout the Penthouse to interpret the historic heritage of the site. Warm hues of midnight blue, deep green, charcoal, fossil, brick red and greys compliment the Penthouse’s contemporary appearance.
Working with celebrated British and international artisan companies, from carpenters and weavers to fabric designers and headboard makers, we have introduced rich fabrics, statement wallpapers and elegant metalwork details to give this space a cool, London vibe.
The fabulous bespoke bronze and smoke glass multi-pendant lighting over the beautiful handcrafted 3m long green Alpe Verdi marble dining table gives the perfect wow-factor for this double height space. The 3m, full height TV media wall and shelving unit is striking, whilst the minimalist white marble console table and mirrored drinks trolley add a retro hint.
Statement wallpapers are by Belgium manufacturer Arte, and carefully curated and especially commissioned artwork, including photography, prints and paintings by up-and-coming British artists, adorn the Penthouse walls.
The bespoke, plush indigo velvet headboard in the main bedroom is built by British craftsmen and sets the tone for this beautiful room with walk in wardrobes and stunning views over the River Thames. Two further imposing bedrooms with bespoke rust velvet headboards, polished copper bedside lights and elegant smoked glass side tables reflect the London vibe of the design.
Many pieces of furniture, including the sofas and chairs, were especially designed for the Penthouse by British craftsmen and upholstered in high quality fabrics by House of Hackney, Kirkby Design, Harlequin, Zoffany and Dedar.
The ultimate London experience is found in the beautifully designed roof terrace with glass balustrade giving breath-taking views across the capital city. Subtle lighting is set into the decking where a grey upholstered sofa and elegant chairs make this the perfect entertaining space.
