Art is central to my inspiration, and so is place – the way we respond to and are in turn shaped by it. We’ve curated pieces from Hackney’s rich source of local emerging artists and galleries, both for the penthouses and for the inviting communal spaces we’ve designed.
I believe the things we surround ourselves with should make us feel alive and connect us to the spaces we inhabit; this is ultimately what I hope for the residents who will live in these unique homes.
Along with craftsmanship, the emphasis is on the beauty of natural materials and, in reference to the local area, a juxtaposition of the old alongside the new. Each one of these eleven premium apartments has been lovingly curated to create a totally unique home.
Influenced by the original Georgian terrace that forms part of One Crown Place, Sophie and her team have looked to the beautifully soft palette of the Georgian period. The era is often referred to as ‘the age of elegance’ and modern elegance is what defines these sumptuous interiors.
The kitchen provides a fitting focal point for the heart of the home. Each kitchen includes high-end appliances from a Swiss brand V-ZUG, stone surfaces and bespoke wall units that optimises the space.
Throughout the apartments, deep saturated shades of colour have been skilfully blended with lighter tones. The material feel of the environment has also been carefully considered. In the bedroom, the white lacquer oak veneer wardrobe doors have been elegantly crafted, with the tactile luxury of their soft leather wrap pull-handles adding a superior finish.
Classic clean lines and richly contrasting materials define the spacious master en-suite bathroom. Set against muted polished plaster and natural stone, the beautiful bespoke vanity unit is crafted from deep green marble above oak drawers, finished with brass handles. The generously proportioned walk-in shower is finished in white marble slab, offset by contemporary matt black fittings.
