We were engaged on this project from inception and played a critical role in ensuring it received planning consent. Once on site, an added complexity to the project was that a world-famous Japanese restaurant, situated in part of the ground floor and basement of the existing building, remained trading for the duration of the building works. Having a combined appointment which included the provision of Party Wall services greatly aided our ability to sensitively work around the needs of adjoining owners and other stakeholders.
As part of the interior dressing of the duplex penthouse a Steinway Grand Piano was installed on the top floor which involved the piano being craned in through a 4th floor window and then manoeuvred up the internal stairway to be placed on the 5th floor. Unfortunately the eventual purchaser of the apartment did not want the piano and so it was later carefully removed again a few months later.
The interior of the apartments was designed by Studio Mackereth, and delivered a sophisticated layout with high quality finishes throughout. An interior designer was brought on board to individually dress each of the spaces and bring the apartments to life to show the lifestyle possible which added to the saleability and sales value or each unit. The units were sold on by the developer with or without the interior furniture fixtures fittings and accessories. The project won the Residential Development Interior of the year award in 2015.
Following the successful sale of all the apartments we assisted the Client in monitoring tenant alteration works.
