Designed by award winning internationally acclaimed 6a architects. This wonderful two bedroom, two bathroom apartment, with two private terraces, responds to the eccentric shape of the plot, allowing height and orientation of rooms to vary for privacy, sunlight and views.The Interior has been lime washed with exposed beams and columns defining the living spaces, exposed concrete frame and ceilings, block-work gently visible through lime washed walls, surface mounted electrics, to give a very honest, straightforward simple feel.
Floors are Douglas Fir Ply and encaustic tile in kitchens and bathrooms. Joinery is the same Douglas fir ply, but treated with a grey oil. Walls are variously exposed concrete or lime washed block-work, offset with rough, uneven, materials with high end, luxurious detailing including, bespoke cast brass door handles and hand rails, triple glazed windows and stylish bathroom fittings.
