Cozy and inviting while displaying the charm of a now refurbished Edwardian building in London, the inspiring Leman Street residence is today’s dream home. This newly-build home rests on a piece of history, telling its own story of contemporaneity to the world. Overlooking the city’s rooftops from different vantage points, the luxurious penthouse apartment was imagined as a modern home by TG STUDIO. Thomas Griem, director of TG-Studio, was commissioned by Berkley Homes to design the interior of this penthouse apartment and create “a warm, comfortable home whilst still being luxurious, contemporary and organic”.
Sophisticated colors were chosen to rekindle the elegance defining this historic Edwardian building located near London’s financial district. This residential project captures views of the city through framed sliding doors and floor-to-ceiling windows that line the walls of the open living space extending into the dining and connecting with the kitchen at the other end.The 12 meter (40 foot) wide window showcases how the designer based the whole interior design on the concept of photography inspired by views.
The elegantly furbished balcony features the Crinoline Armchair by Patricia Urquiola as an open invitation to admire the city and daydream, imagining how the city sparkles under the effects of each person living in it. Opaque curtains offer privacy or open the views depending on the owner’s mood.
The elegance captured by Thomas Griem Studio and poured into different spaces across the world is seen in details and the way the studio encompasses the clients’ needs into given spaces. Part of their portfolio, the St. Pancras Penthouse showcases a completely different floor plan but the same exquisite attention to details and the importance of colors and textures.
Photographed by Philip Vile, the new-build penthouse in Aldgate features not only bespoke British furniture pieces, but also a stunning freestanding bathtub in the master ensuite. Placed near a glass wall with views of the city below and the sky above, the 660 pounds bathtub was a challenge to carry up seven floors. It took the collective efforts of six men to place this bathtub there and give owners the possibility of dreaming. Soaking in hot water with flickering candle light creating a serene ambiance and having city lights as your companions – sounds like a re-balancing end of a stressful day.
