Tower Bridge Penthouse London

TG-Studio (London) were tasked with the interior design by Berkeley Homes to make this a very special penthouse for this stunning 5200 sq.ft. duplex penthouse at a new development just a few steps from London’s iconic Tower Bridge.

Through the selection of wall finishes, furniture and accessories we wanted to create a sense of uniqueness and understated luxury for this show apartment that would appeal to investors both within the UK and abroad.

The property has a grand entrance hall complete with stunning architecturally designed l spiral staircase which leads up to an unusually large 4000 sq.ft. terrace with outdoor kitchen and dining space for twelve, affording panoramic views of London taking in almost every major London landmark. The key here was to zone the space into a relaxing area complete with Jacuzzi and sculpture garden, and a party area. On the main living floor below there is an open plan living/dining space and kitchen as well as three large en-suite bedrooms and dressing rooms as well as a wrap-around balcony on some 2000 sq.ft.

Starting with the layout Thomas immersed himself in the lifestyle of potential buyers to start to build the design in his mind. As the owner could be an international buyer it was important to make the design universal so it could appeal to someone from Russia or China for example but also have a nod to its location.

What we created was an international design with a strong London touch. Buyers of this type of property want to buy a bit of London so we tried to express that. So there are some tweeds in there and some buttoned furniture. The sofa has a touch of Englishness to it. Most of the furniture has a Mid-20th Century feel to it. The Dean armchairs in the living room are from Alter London. There are Ventura lounge chairs in the entrance hall with an Acerbis Creso table, which has an opulent gold leaf base. The artworks are purposefully eclectic but stand back from the main space without intruding. There is a piece by emerging Romanian artist Dumitrache Ciprian and another by Susan Kinsella both sourced from Saatchi Art.

In partnership with the artist Carol Peace we designed a sculpture garden for the terrace and placed a number of her pieces throughout the apartment, including the beautiful Red Scarf that greets you as you enter. The walls throughout are adorned with artworks by emerging artists courtesy of Saatchi Art.

The penthouse was subsequently purchased with everything included and Thomas is now working on an even more expensive penthouse in Central London.
