The current owner has designed and created this striking apartment to perfectly complement the industrial nature of the building, with a dramatic use of materials, finishes and lighting, and meticulous attention to detail.

Situated on the first floor, the apartment leads from an entrance hall through to a vast 2,500 sq ft open-plan living space, making highly creative use of materials such as Basaltina stone, brushed steel, smoked glass, and black lacquered wood to create an absorbing, indulgent experience. Award winning lighting design allows the atmosphere to be tuned and bespoke to the occasion. Three uniquely different bedroom suites are accessed via large sliding panels and a stone walkway. Each one features a playful use of materials, space and carefully integrated lighting design.
