This apartment was designed for a well-travelled, professional couple in their 40s, who wanted the space to reflect their travels, particularly in Africa and Asia, with stand-out artwork and accessories from Africa and Asia set within a clean and bright overall European interiors style.
The simplex apartment, on the raised ground floor of a 5-storey, new-build block, is comprised of a lobby area; an open-plan living and dining area; a kitchen; three bedrooms and an external, semi-sheltered patio area.
Entrance is via a sculptural lobby space. A central passage then leads into the open-plan living and dining space, which features a large-scale bespoke wall unit and a white leather sofa. The dining area, with lots of built-in dark wood (by Poliform), features furniture in glass with leather legs, whilst the highly contemporary kitchen has white lacquered unitry.
The master bedroom continues the use of leather with a leather-clad bed. A second bedroom is decorated in shades of cognac with wall panels in albicloth (a traditional African type of embroidery). The third room, which can be used for guests or adapted to be a study, has a low, contemporary bed, a white chaise longue and a desk, with feature dappled shadow wallpaper.
