Having once taken part in the extraordinary and prestigious design development of this building located at the heart of Belgravia, London, I am today looking into the final results. 3.5 years ago this building was fully covered, all rooms were being redecorated and due to the grade II listed building legislations all and every part of the original wood flooring, original stone staircases, railings and original Regency wall and ceiling covings, mouldings and cornices were neatly taken apart and carefully restored. Judging the delivery time the works were being carried out with excellence, due to the use of craftsmen. Today the basic elements of the initial specification has remained with incorporated bespoke and contemporary kitchens, Gaggenau and Miehle appliances, chevron wood flooring, marbles and natural stones applied to the bathroom areas matching the original carrara stone floors (again, legislation), and with a combination of brands such as Duravit and Boffi, polished nickel details, high quality silk and wool carpets and the mixed use of red and brown woods (rosewood, cherry, mahogany). According to the new specification Italian mosaic has also been applied to the underground pool area but with a changed label and the high-spec integration of multi-room and home cinema audio solutions carrying the Crestron and Lutron tag for lighting control systems, touch screens video controls and security remains.
The FF&E has been re-evaluated. Remaining is the core concept, a “Modern Classic” covering a gold & “silver” theme with the composition of red–towards-brown wood finishes and natural shades and materials. Stunning!!!
