Luxurious Grosvenor Crescent renovation by Helen Green Designs, London
Grosvenor Crescent is one of London’s most important residential development and restoration projects by Grosvenor. It is a refurbishment of one of Belgravia’s finest 19th century crescents in the heart of Belgravia on Grosvenor’s 300-acre London estate.
Eight Grade II* listed Regency townhouses have been reconfigured into 15 exquisite apartments. Immaculately restored and returned to their 19th century glory they also incorporate the finest elements of contemporary detailing for the world’s most discerning buyers. Helen Green Design has dressed two further apartments; the initial three were among the first to sell.
At 3-10 Grosvenor Crescent, Grosvenor has created some of London’s most desirable residences with duplex penthouses, lateral apartments and three- to four-storey Grand Apartments. The five Grand Apartments have private terraces and courtyard gardens. All residents have membership and key access to one of London’s grandest 19th century gardens on Belgrave Square and its tennis courts. A further three ideal for accommodating visiting family or staff. Parking for 22 cars are provided in a secure tiered underground garage, with a separate garage for one of the larger ‘grand’ apartments. All apartments are serviced 24 hours a day by a discreet and highly trained concierge team. Seth Smith, one of the 19th century’s master builders in Belgravia, built 3-10 Grosvenor Crescent shortly after 1836.
British luxury interior design firm, Helen Green Design, is the face behind the sophisticated interiors. Green sadly died in August 2012, making this one of her last commissions.
The luxury London apartments are contemporary in layout, one with retractable glass roof and internal courtyard garden, yet display key Regency detailing in cornicing, flooring and significant fireplaces. A new range of colour palettes and materials has been introduced to highlight these elements and include citrine, sapphire and cobalt blue, golden thread, white and pale greys.
Reflective materials include mother of pearl, silver, rose gold, nickel, lacquered furniture, Murano-styled glass fittings, harlequin mirroring, polished and honed marbles, alabaster wall lights, vintage Perspex- and veneered furniture in Helen Green Design’s own bespoke finishes, Oro and Betulla.
Layered textures are revealed in upholstery, curtain treatment, wall and ceiling finishes. They include grosgrain ribboning, silk teal wallpaper brushed with gold, grass cloth and basket weave, silks, cashmeres and brushed wood shelving. Helen Green Design has sourced bespoke linens from L&B on Belgravia’s Motcomb Street to fit their two-metre beds, velvets from the Venetian family-owned company Rubelli (suppliers to the Gritti Palace) and crafted, artisanal fabrics from Tissus d’Hélѐne.
