A Riverside Apartment

Penthouse in London’s Docklands

This compact riverside apartment penthouse in Canary Wharf, Docklands, was looking bland and tired. The brief was to create a sleek, uncluttered living space for this busy client, with plenty of storage and easy-to-maintain lines. The irregularly-shaped windows and floor-to-ceiling glass doors provided challenges.

The client was living overseas, making this very much a turn key project in which we needed to agree and brief and manage every aspect of the completion in their absence.

Taking inspiration from the spectacular river view, we created a subtle palette of sand, taupe and watery blue-grey which was used throughout. We designed and commissioned storage units to fit the curved walls along with bespoke sofas for the compact living space. A new kitchen, again in taupes and blues, blends effortlessly with the living space.

And in the bedroom, a clutter free haven, continuing the subtle colour scheme, with touches of luxury… and a sleek shower room in taupes and blue-greys to complete the seamless look.

Allowed a great deal of time to make sure we were understanding each other

“In the selection process Cathy stood out from the various interviews I conducted because she listened and allowed a great deal of time to make sure that we were understanding each other. This has proven to be the case throughout the project from mood board until completion.”
