Luxury and chic Park Mansions property, London

Luxury-London-Property-Design-05

London-based architecture and luxury interior design practice Lawson Robb have completed the Park Mansions project. Completed in 2012, the property can be found in  London, England.

Lawson Robb were asked to transform this dark, and rather plain two bedroom apartment with beautiful period features, into a stylish pied a terre for its European client who travelled extensively and wanted a boutique hotel feel to his apartment.

The brief was to provide a strikingly luxurious and stylish interior using masculine colour palettes, rich in different textures paired and innovation design solutions for entertaining and clever storage whilst being a welcoming place that remained tailored to his lifestyle. The interior designers introduced  a ‘wow’ factor, clever zoning and exciting vistas through the use of design layouts, ambient lighting, and sophisticated finishes, features, decoration and colour schemes throughout. From picking up the keys to putting down the last tea spoon, with the clients busy schedule and travelling requirements he wanted the works.

The luxury London design practice developed the concept through use of very chic, luxurious and interesting finishes and textures and practical and comfortable furnishing solutions.

A rich range of specialist textures and a moody palette was employed with chocolate coloured polished plaster to the focal fireplace wall giving a sense of depth, contrasted with a roughly mottled pale grey plaster render to the other walls. The existing walnut floor was stained throughout the apartment however the use of a dark, black high gloss stain played with the natural light throughout.

To reduce clutter in the luxury London property plenty of discreet storage was created with back lit teak slatted panels which slid open to reveal a home cinema and storage for a vast collection of movies and games.

‪To add visual stimulation and impact to a long and dark corridor, clear resin spherical lights at different heights, tall metallic framed mirrors to bounce the light along the corridor and a stunning, full height, battered brass pivot door to draw your eye to the end, were added.

The master bedroom utilised contrasting textures to add sophistication and interest to a tonal neutral scheme. A woven and stretched new buck leather clad wall contrasted beautifully with roughly rendered, pale coloured cupboard doors and the lacquered bedroom door was softened by the silk rug.

The feature piece of the design is a hammered bronze paneled three-quarter pivot door, in the entrance hall and corridor which was manufactured by a local artist. Furthermore, three mirrors within the hallways were installed which were framed in the hammered bronze to link the two areas, whilst utilizing any natural light from the kitchen.
